First steps

Preparation, installation and important basics about G DATA Business Solutions.

Important basic knowledge

Main modules

G DATA ManagementServer

The G DATA ManagementServer is the server module of the software.

G DATA Administrator

This is the G DATA ManagementServer interface, where you manage your client configurations and view all logs and statistics. For one G DATA ManagementServer, multiple G DATA Administrators can be installed on different computers.

G DATA Security Client

This is the actual protection component. Its type and scope depends on the license you have purchased. Each system to be protected (including the system on which G DATA ManagementServer resides) requires a client installation.
Different clients are available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS operating systems.

Microsoft database

G DATA ManagementServer requires a Microsoft database to store and manage all relevant data. Which database you choose is up to you. You can install a new database instance, a Microsoft SQL Express 2014 through our installation routine, or use an existing instance. As a rule, it does not matter whether you use a full version or an Express version. Only the Patch Management add-on module requires a full version of the Microsoft database. Even with a large number of clients, it can happen that the express versions from Microsoft reach their limits.

Before the installation

Before you begin, some questions must be clarified.

Which steps are necessary now?

Install the G DATA ManagementServer first. This installation will also install a G DATA Administrator on the same system.

The first time you start the G DATA Administrator on the server, the setup wizard starts. All settings made with the setup wizard can also be changed later. Follow the setup wizard and activate the clients (activate clients means you create a record in the database for this client).

Download the virus signatures from the G DATA ManagementServer directly afterwards.

Install the clients. There are several ways to do this.

Check that all clients have logged into G DATA ManagementServer after installation and that authorisation has taken place.
