Tested among 25 other security apps for Android, G DATA’s Mobile Security Solutions received full marks

We are very honored to receive the highest marks in the AV-TEST Certification

G DATA, the world’s longest standing antivirus company, today announced that their Internet Security Protection for Android solution received the AV-TEST Certification, a coveted accolade in Internet security. In November, AV-TEST evaluated 25 mobile security products for Android using their default settings, and G DATA received the highest marks possible. The focus of these tests were on protection against malware, risky applications, dangers while surfing the web and ease of use.     

“We are very honored to receive the highest marks in the AV-TEST Certification,” said Andy Hayter, Security Evangelist. “This certification is not only put on by a leader in antivirus research and holds significant credibility in the field, but it also helps motivate antivirus manufacturers to optimize their products and contribute towards increasing public awareness of the growing importance of IT security,”

Beyond reliable all-around protection, G DATA’s Internet Security Protection for Android devices also gives the user complete freedom if the device is lost or stolen. Smartphones can be located, but if not found, data can be deleted remotely, eliminating the possibility of a third party accessing your data. Another beneficial aspect of the protection is the worry-free parental controls. This allows for blocking of age-inappropriate content, and the prevention of higher telephone and texting usage.
