G Data Internet Security 2014 Review
It is one of the first Internet security suites to offer cloud-based virus scanning. On one hand, this may slightly reduce your privacy by sending the signature of files on your computer to G Data’s servers. On the other hand, cloud-based virus scanning is much more reliable than traditional virus fingerprinting. It uses the brand-new CloseGap technology, which offers comprehensive, efficient protection that does not slow down your PC or laptop.
In addition to virus scanning, this security suite offers a spam filter to help cut down on annoyances and parental controls to help keep your kids safe online. This is more security than you’ll get from many cheaper security suites, making this software a good choice for anyone wanting top-notch digital security.
Drawbacks found: 1, G Data only offers a contact form support, doesn't provide product manual, phone or live chat support, and a member forum; 2, It lacks some extra security features, such as system tune-up, secure online data backup, file shredding & recovery, etc. However, you can upgrade to their TotalSecurity to get some advanced features.
