Data antivirus detects and removes malware – also known as malware from your computers or laptops. This malware is designed to damage your device or take your personal data. In the form of an email attachment, USB drive or a suspicious website, malware may infiltrate your computer without you even knowing.
Malware is usually hidden in files that your antivirus software identifies as dangerous, and the majority of antivirus programs employ three methods to detect it: specific detection, looking for signatures of viruses (unique sequences of bytes that are used to identify the malware); generic detection, scanning for parts of malicious codes that are found in other viruses and heuristic detection, which analyzes suspicious file structures. Some of the best antivirus software uses all of these techniques to protect against the widest range of threats.
G DATA combines these with other features like parental control to limit kids access to the internet as well as banking security to prevent hackers from intercepting your bank or shopping online information; cloud backup which saves encrypted files on servers, not the device itself and iOS security that scans apps for dangerous content. The firewall is also in place which monitors data incoming and outgoing data. A phishing blocker blocks criminals from accessing data via websites that are controlled by them.
G DATA has an excellent real-world protection score. This means it’s extremely unlikely to confuse regular files as malicious ones, and the impact is minimal on your device performance, so it shouldn’t consume too much of your computer’s resources. The cost ranges from $39 per year for a single device, up to $72 for five devices.
