Cloud Antivirus

Storing files online instead of on local storage devices has many advantages. Companies can easily share content among colleagues or with external service providers - regardless of whether they are located three offices away, in a home office or in another country. In addition to central data storage or collaboration tools, backends of websites or chat applications are of course also dependent on data storage in the cloud.

In times of digitalisation, all these applications facilitate collaborative work and make it more efficient. But they also carry the risk of spreading malware. A good virus scanner can ward off threats, but local scans are often not complete, they are resource-intensive, and they are simply sometimes forgotten. A better solution for files distributed over the Internet: an automatic scan when they are being sent or uploaded. That's exactly what our ""Verdict-as-a-Service"" (or ""VaaS"" for short) service does - an antivirus for your cloud.

How does Vaas work?

Convenient and simple: with Verdict as a Service, you can check any file for malicious content by contacting the G DATA Antivirus Cloud. No on-site hardware infrastructure is required. Our cloud virus scanner is operated in DSGVO-compliant data centers. All files are transferred encrypted and not stored in the cloud. You retain full control over your data.

Our On Demand Scanner is lean, fast and easily scalable. From one file to over 1 million per day? We can do it. Your verdict is given within milliseconds of the scans.

Cloud Antivirus integrates very easily with applications, websites and services, without the need for specialized security and threat knowledge. Use the scan engine flexibly on demand, whenever you need it. No matter what virus scanners you already have in use - Verdict as a Service is always a useful addition.

At a glance: What are your benefits with the Cloud Antivirus from G DATA?

  • Scan On Demand: No local installation necessary. All scans run over the Internet.
  • Scan-Speed: Fast scan engine with verdicts within milliseconds.
  • Scalability: We can handle millions of files per day if needed.
  • Simplicity: Our ready-to-use Software Development Kits (SDKs) allow you to integrate VaaS without special IT security knowledge.

We are pleased that we have found a strong partner from Germany for the offer of our cloud antivirus solution in IONOS. For you, this means not only a high level of security, but also a high degree of reliability. The IONOS servers are always available and protected against failures. Just like G DATA, IONOS attaches great importance to excellent service and support. The IONOS support department is located in Germany and is available around the clock. Protecting customer data against unauthorized access is also a top priority at both companies - unlike many large cloud services.

Verdict-as-a-Service with our cloud virus scanner is the first product from the new partnership and we are delighted that it was named a finalist for the title of "Cloud Project of the year" at IONOS immediately after its launch.
