    Full disclosure, I know one guy involved in this project. They have a lot of brainpower going on over there.

    These guys really got this right. Ratings and Rankings are always debatable. But their selections I believe represent the current 'best of breed' in AV & Internet Security Suites.

    Of course everybody's situation and set-up are different, so something different may be best for you. I tried to use both Bitdefender and Kaspersky with unsatisfactory results on my system. Too bad, because I think Kaspersky is the long-time security champ. But G-Data works beautifully on my system. And I have a Norton product on another system that is as reliable and smooth and polished as any AV I've ever used -- and I've tried many.

    Antivirus Software
    Because this software cluster is undoubtedly among the most popular, it tends to be a trendsetter in the entire security industry. With extremely tight competition in place, the principles of product evaluation that we apply have left no room for uncertainty as to which ones are on the pedestal.

    Gold Award: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015

    Providing robust protection regardless of the virus attack sophistication which is growing – that’s what we call consistency. This invaluable feature is absolutely true for Bitdefender Antivirus Plus. Said product successfully combines efficiency with low system footprint, which is a mix not to be undervalued. The utility’s Active Virus Control feature is backed by the dynamic detection technology, which ensures continuous defense against malware. Also delivering solid online security and privacy protection, this software undoubtedly deserves the award.

    Silver Award: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015

    The blend of unbeatable antivirus protection proper and the abundance of smart online security features have kept this solution in the top of the ratings across the board for years, this year being no exception. What’s particularly luring about Kaspersky Anti-Virus is one of the most extensive databases of malware it uses, the respective cloud-assisted technology guaranteeing high responsiveness to new threats. Improved user interface is on the plus side, too. The cons being system performance impact-related, this utility gets the Silver Award.

    Bronze Award: G Data AntiVirus

    Born in Germany, this piece of antivirus software exhibits the unquestionable reliability which is traditionally inherent to other stuff hailing from there. Streamlined user interface with nothing redundant is what catches the eye at first sight. How about protection? It’s solid enough for the program to rank in the top three, delivering highly effective defenses against viruses, reliable file monitoring, instant email protection, secure e-banking and shopping features, as well as a cool technology for exploit protection. G Data - It's all about the sicher.



    Internet Security Suites
    Any classification would be incomplete without this category included. Internet security suites make it a safe experience to visit sites, use social networks, purchase products and shop online.
    The regular antivirus defense is certainly in place as well. Below is the list of the Privacy-PC award-winners in this cluster.

    Gold Award: Bitdefender Internet Security 2015

    This old timer in the niche has made it to the very top again due to unbreakable prevention of unauthorized access to a user’s private information, sophisticated parental control, highly efficient antispam and fraud warnings. The Bitdefender Wallet and Safepay features make it easy to stay secure during e-shopping and banking. Safe social networking is guaranteed as well. The product includes performance enhancement and system optimization extras, namely the Photon and One-Click Optimizer. Irreproachable features set and strong protection are at your disposal right there.

    Sliver Award: Norton Security

    This representative of the all-new line of Norton products combines an exceptional antimalware capability and online safety features that suffice for one’s peace of mind during Internet sessions. The revamped program is cross-platform (can be used on both PCs and Macs) and has a version for smartphones and tablets. Suspicious websites and harmful downloads are not going to affect a Norton Security user, nor will identity theft attempts and financial frauds. The vendor sticks to the “Viruses removed or your money back” principle, so protection is guaranteed for sure.

    Bronze Award: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015

    Dependable online security is a joke as long as this suite is standing sentinel over it. As a matter of fact, Kaspersky Internet Security has got more under the hood: identity and privacy safeguards, the Safe Money technology, secure social networking tool, potentially harmful website alerts and advanced parental control. Hybrid protection powered by the cloud is there to impede malicious code from getting inside. Automatic exploit prevention keeps software vulnerabilities from being used by malware, and system watcher identifies uncatalogued threats. This is a great suite beyond doubt.

    Good Afternoon! Like Frank...I've used both Bitdefender and Kaspersky...and G-Data...all three in the past have been buggy for various reasons on my system. But The newest version of G-Data Security...provides a Dramatic and Remarkable Turn around in Engineering of the Product. At the moment it's as nimble as My other favourite ESET S.S.8...and that's a 360 Degree Admission. Because as of last year I would re-install and uninstall G-Data usually within a week due to the Bloat Factor. As Frank has stated it all depends on how every individual has their system configured. Keeping in mind that Detection and Eliminating Malware is of Paramount Importance. All three Apps accomplish those Criteria! Happy 2015...Stay Sicher! Sincerely...Securon

    Another Win for G-Data.

    EU Research Group Names G DATA most Innovative Cyber Security Company

    EU community project IPACSO (Innovation Framework for Privacy and Cyber Security Market Opportunities) honoured IT security companies and technologies from all over Europe for the first time this year. In the "Innovative Cyber Security Company" category, the jury consisting of researchers and companies named G DATA as the most innovative IT security provider in Europe. In their reasoning, the jurors commended the creative inventiveness and the quick reactions to new cyber threats. According to IPACSO, a prime example of this is G DATA's technological response to the Bad-USB threat scenario. The German IT security company was the only provider worldwide to immediately develop an effective security tool: USB Keyboard Guard.
