G Data launches 2011 security products

CeBIT: faster, and more secure

G Data is presenting its next-generation 2011 consumer security software here at the CeBIT tradeshow in Hanover,Germany. G Data is launching G Data AntiVirus 2011, G Data InternetSecurity 2011, G Data InternetSecurity 2011 for Netbooks, G Data TotalCare 2011 and G Data NotebookSecurity 2011.

According to G Data, the company is utilising its 'cloud' of users to better target suspect behaviour. This also reduces the amount of work that the user's PC has to do, leading to what G Data refers to as 'dazzling' and 'turbo-charged' speed. The demonstration PC Advisor saw tends to bear this out, and on a more tangible level the system requirements are minimal: only 512MB RAM, for instance.

As is the trend with security vendors, G Data claims to have beefed up behaviour detection the 2011 products. It's also improved the user interface: we can't comment on what went before, but the new layout certainly looks user friendly and feels intuitive.

There's also User Account Control. Yes, you read that right. G Data has integrated a feature most Windows users loathe, but the company claims that it makes UAC "user friendly".

The 2011 products are available as a free upgrade for existing users, and prices range from €24 to €49.
