G DATA security solutions receive top marks in latest Virus Bulletin test

Testers praise effective defense against malware and low performance profile

Experts at the British „Virus Bulletin“ magazine have put 40 security solutions through their paces in their latest line of tests, with a particular emphasis on malware protection and system performance. G DATA AntiVirus has scored full marks for reactive and proactive detection of and defense against malware. During the test, 100 per cent of all malware was detected without a single false positive detection. In particular, testers have commended G DATA’s CloseGap technology which is part of all G DATA solutions. In addition, the low cost in performance received much praise. Therefore, G DATA had no trouble securing the coveted VB100 certification.

Virus Bulletin test verdict on G DATA

“[…] This month’s performance was very strong once again with excellent detection rates […] and a pleasingly low system speed impact. […] G DATA earns a VB100 award with another excellent showing.”
