CeBIT, Hanover (Germany), March 5th, 2013

After several years of development, G Data will introduce its new antivirus technology "Made in Germany" as a world premiere at CeBIT 2013: G Data CloseGap – Active Hybrid Protection that fends off malware and online attacks. G Data CloseGap is more than just AV technology and breaks new ground technologically. It supplements proactive defence technologies like BankGuard, WebCloud and BehaviourBlocker with signature-based detection and protection technologies. Thanks to its modular structure and regular updates, G Data CloseGap is an always up-to-date technologically and it easily keeps pace with the latest online threats. That gives it an immense advantage over traditional antivirus solutions. G Data CloseGap is included in the new security solutions for home users: G Data AntiVirus 2014, G Data InternetSecurity 2014 and G Data TotalProtection 2014.

Perfect protection thanks to German engineering

When it comes to fending off computer malware, precision and speed matter. A short response time between the first occurrence of the malware and the provision of a corresponding signature is often crucial. However, traditional antivirus solutions are often not able to keep up.

G Data CloseGap technology breaks new ground and combines proactive and signature-based security technologies to offer powerful, active hybrid protection. With each update, CloseGap receives additional enhancements, which means the functionality can be easily adjusted to the current threat situation at any time. This way, users and their data are always optimally protected at any time, even in case of new and previously unknown attack scenarios. Compared to previous dual-engine concepts, CloseGap offers another advantage: it uses significantly fewer resources.

How G Data CloseGap works

A dual engine provides perfect protection against online threats. However, a lot of computing resources are used up because of the double detection.

Intelligent technologies work where they are needed. This eliminates duplication of work and thus saves valuable resources. The CloseGap technology developed by G Data works in a similar way: the active hybrid protection automatically detects and closes the gap in the defence cycle. It works fast and effectively and thus provides comprehensive protection without slowing down the PC.

Security generation 2014 with CloseGap technology

G Data CloseGap is included in the new security solutions for home users: G Data AntiVirus 2014, G Data InternetSecurity 2014 and G Data TotalProtection 2014.
