G Data virus scanner detects banking Trojans by bacing on their characteristics. If the malware already has its own signature, Internet Security renders the malware harmless while it is being downloaded. Our BankGuard technology also protects you against dangers that are still unknown. The function ensures that your browser only displays checked, genuine.
Besides the files on your hard drive and on external storage devices, our virus scanner also checks your emails for malicious content. This applies to all messages you send and receive via the email program on your computer. If the scanner finds nothing, our Anti-Spam function is also activated. The application checks the email for features that are typical of spam. These characteristics are used to calculate a value reflecting the likelihood of it being spam.
In addition to the separate evaluation, the OutbreakShield technology compares the results to a database on the Internet – patterns of viruses and spam emails sent en masse are collated here.This enables Internet Security to close the gap that exists between the start of a mass mailing and the fight against it in real time, using specially adapted signatures.
The virus monitor checks every file that comes from the web. It stops infected documents, images and the like while they are being downloaded. This means that unnoticed downloads no longer pose a threat to you. When doing so, Internet Security not only relies on hourly updated virus signatures. Besides the signature scan, the software works with a Cloud solution. The properties of current files that contain malware are stored in this online memory. These properties are compared with those in your files – and you quickly find out if everything is OK.
