G DATA InternetSecurity 2014 Editor's Review

With prowess of malware and onslaught of hackers on rise, it has become necessary for every PC user to equip his or her computer with a security suite. However, selecting the most apt security software is not easy, given the plethora of options. There are both freeware and commercial apps that you can use for this. Among commercial security software, you can pick from established players as well as relative newcomers. If you want a security suite that costs far less than most contenders but does not skimp on features, give G Data Internet Security a try. It does come with a handful of components and features like firewall, parental control and anti-spam. While some components of the suite perform really well, a few others fail to impress.

The app runs on PCs equipped with Windows XP with SP2 and later versions of OSes. For smooth performance, your PC needs to have 1 GB or more RAM installed. The company offer slicense options for one or multiple PCs and 1 or 2 years. You can also use the app in trial mode before shelling out the cost for licensing.

The interface of G Data Internet Security has large touch friendly buttons that can be used to select any of the 5 sections- Autostart Manager, Parental controls, Firewall, Virus protection and Security Center. The app is equipped with the company’s patented CloseGap technology to offer enhanced protection from various types of malware round the clock.

The app does a decent job of malware cleanup but there are contenders that perform better. What the app lacks in malware cleanup, it makes up in malware blocking. It beats many other apps in malware blocking as it is. G Data Internet Security also fares very well in online malware thwarting and eliminates such apps at either URL or download level. Unlike many other security apps, G Data does not block valid applications from downloading.

Like Norton’s security tools, G Data Internet Security has a program management component that launches when you start the computer. You may choose which programs to start with windows or prevent them from launching after booting, as per your needs. In anti phishing section, this version of G Data Internet Security does not perform as well as its predecessor, lagging behind even SmartScreen Filter of IE 8.

In every commercial internet security app, you get one firewall component and same is true of this app. The firewall of the app has a default Autopilot mode where the user does not need to intervene for any activities. Of course, you can use a slider based security level setting for the app’s firewall component. It is advisable that only network administrators tinker with the firewall settings and average users can rely on the firewall’s Standard security level. When it comes to resisting stealth attacks, the app’s firewall performs exceptionally well. Like many top notch security tools, G Data Internet Security comes with integrated application termination defense feature.

One area where the software performs miserably is parental control. There is a Web content filter that can block inapt sites falling into 5 objectionable sections but it is less than adequate. It can be counterproductive as news sites with keywords indicating violence and pornography can be blocked. While the app offers extensive computer time control for users, tech savvy kids with access to an administrator account can easily fool the app by resetting system date and time.

The app includes a spam filer as expected and it performs quite average. With the filter enabled, you may face slowdown in bulk email download. It does not block valid messages as spam which is good. However, some spam mails finally manage to skip its scrutiny and make to the inbox.

Nowadays, many PC security companies bundle utilities like backup and cloud storage with their antivirus apps and G Data is no exception. With this Internet Security suite, you get a file shredder. The shred tool integrates with Windows shell to appear in right click.

Not long ago, reputed PC security suites including Norton used to face flak for their resource hungry nature. The safety from malware came at the price of performance deficit. However, with most security suites you can buy nowadays, this problem does not exist. Freeware and paid PC security tools now come with low system footprint. However, G Data Internet Security misses the mark in this aspect. The app slows down computing and the effect is especially perceptible during browsing. The system boot time also gets lengthened considerably after you install the suite. This is definitely not good news for users especially those who have relatively older computers.

Positive Points:
 -  Very good malware blocking performance.
 -  Integrated Shredder and Auto start manager.
 -  Quite affordable app.
 -  Versatile firewall with good performance.

Negative Points:
 -  Average malware cleanup performance.
 -  Slows down the system visibly.
 -  Spam filter performance is average.
 -   Parental control is lackluster.

Conclusion:
Overall, G Data Internet Security comes across as a mixed bag for PC users. The suite’s USP is its low price but most users would not like to compromise on system performance and security for money. While the app excels in malware blocking, its malware cleanup performance leaves much to be desired. The firewall component is customizable and performs well but its anti spam and anti phishing performance fails to impress. The biggest letdown is possibly the performance hit. You will find many other security suites that are much lighter on system resources and offer better overall performance for a marginal hike in price.

Rating: 3/5
