G DATA Business version 14.1 with improved protection features

New Business line-up with integrated Ransomware protection

Attacks by Ransomware have increased significantly this year - the blackmail trojans Petna and WannaCry have impressively proven this. Large companies such as Maersk and Beiersdorf suffered triple-digit million losses. Thanks to its fully integrated anti-ransomware technology, the new G DATA Business version 14.1 leaves no chance for blackmail malware and reliably protects against unknown threats. The new business security solutions are now available.

Improvement thanks to Anti-Ransomware technology

With the new business lineup 14.1, G DATA is extending its security solutions with proactive technology against Ransomware. This complements behavior-based recognition with a next-generation technology that recognizes and blocks encryption attempts at an early stage on the corporate network. Operational failures are now a thing of the past by the prevention of Ransomware attacks.

Even better overview and administrability

IT administrators face major challenges when it comes to securing their own corporate network. The reason for this is the increasing heterogeneity of the network due to more and more devices being connected. Therefore, it makes sense to use a policy management system which makes employee's IT devices manageable and therefore controllable. With version 14.1, device controls can be defined with user-specific exceptions. For example, you can set which people can have access to USB sticks on the computer while others in the company are still prevented from accessing them.

IT administrators can therefore ensure that malware is kept away from the corporate network in the future even more effectively. If unusual activities are detected, IT managers are immediately warned.

My data remains in Europe!

In 2011, G DATA signed a TeleTrust commitment. The result: a "no backdoor" guarantee. The IT company based in Bochum, Germany, has committed itself to ensuring that no breaches in its security solutions are made available for intelligence services. G DATA leaves no back doors open, ensuring not only the best possible but also trustworthy protection against online threats. This point in particular is very important for companies that also take privacy and the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) very seriously. Furthermore, G DATA promises that the collection of personal data and telemetry information has been reduced to a minimum. This approach already complies with the principle of EU GDPRs - and much more: the processing of such information and data also takes place in Germany.

G DATA Managed Endpoint Security

Companies that do not have their own IT department do not need to compromise their IT security thanks to G DATA Managed Endpoint Security. G DATA Managed Endpoint Security enables the IT service provider to manage customer networks without having to be on-site. The protection of business customers is combined with the convenience of managed services in an all-inclusive package for partners and their customers.

G DATA Managed Endpoint Security powered by Microsoft Azure

IT security can now also be outsourced to the German cloud. With G DATA Managed Endpoint Security powered by Microsoft Azure, costs can be calculated and security performance scaled. The cloud connectivity guarantees 99.95 % availability. And because the data centers of Microsoft Cloud Deutschland are located in Frankfurt and Magdeburg, the data remains in Germany. T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, controls access to customer data as a data trustee.
