The G Data security suite interface is clean, streamlined and easy to use. From the home screen, you can easily monitor the status of all the modules as well as real-time CPU load data. G Data utilizes a variety of modules to keep your data safe. These modules include virus protection, email check, signature updates, web and spam protection, firewall and parental controls. G Data is easy to install and is compatible with Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP. Configuring the options and controls are easy thanks to the simple interface, and you will be up and running within minutes.

G Data provides more than just the standard protection you have come to expect from an internet security suite. G Data uses two powerful scanning engines to monitor and scan the data you access online as well as the data on your computer. G Data scans and filters your emails, keeping annoying spam from cluttering your inbox. It also protects from all forms of malware and provides rootkit protection and website recommendations. One of the best features of G Data is the silent firewall. This firewall operates without draining your computing power or sending endless popup alerts onto your screen.

Already bursting with options, G Data also provides bonus tools, such as image backup, data recovery, mobile protection and file shredding. This internet security suite include custom scans, hourly virus signature updates, a safe reboot option, device scanners and parental controls.

Using G Data also ensures safe chat interactions and protects your computer from phishing attempts. It can monitor network access, and there is even an option to manage lists of blocked email addresses. Unfortunately, G Data does not have advanced features like a password manager, a game mode, an application control or a sandbox.

G Data is ready to help with its 24/7 telephone and email support. If you have any questions or concerns about your G Data Internet Security Suite, you can call the support center to speak with a real person, or you can fill out an online form to interact with support.

The dual scanning engines scour your data for any lurking virus, malware or Trojans, and the invisible firewall lets you use your computer without having to wait for any scans to complete.
