Software modules

The following software modules are available (depending on the software version installed):

 SecurityCenter: Your personal security center. Here you can find all the information you need to protect your computer against malware, enabling you to respond specifically to threats.

 Virus protection: In this area you can find information on when your computer was last checked for virus infections and whether the virus monitor is currently providing active protection against infections. Furthermore you can also check the computer or data medium directly for malware, process infected files in the quarantine folder and create a boot medium.

 Firewall: A firewall protects your computer from being spied on. It checks which data and programs from the Internet or network reach your computer and which data is sent from your computer. As soon as there is an indication that data is to be installed or downloaded on your computer without authorisation, the firewall alarm sounds and blocks the unauthorised data exchange. This software module is available in the G DATA Internet Security and G DATA Total Security software versions.

 Backup: As everyday life becomes increasingly digitized through the use of online music services, digital cameras and email, backing up your personal data becomes ever more important. In case there is a hardware error, an accident or damage from viruses or hacker attacks, you should take care to regularly backup your personal documents. The backup module takes care of this job for you and protects your most important documents and files so that you don't have to worry about them. This software module is available in the G DATA Total Security software version.

 Password Manager: You can use the Password Manager as a handy plug-in for your browser to easily manage passwords. This software module is available in the G DATA Total Security software version.

 Tuner: From automatic reminders about Windows updates and regular, scheduled defragmentation to regular removal of unnecessary registry entries and temporary files, the tuner is a handy tool for making your Windows system much faster and more manageable. This software module is available in the G DATA Total Security software version.

 Parental controls: You can use parental controls to regulate surfing behavior and computer use for your children. This software module is available in the G DATA Internet Security and G DATA Total Security software versions.

 Encryption: The encryption module acts like a safe for protecting sensitive data. A safe can, for example, be used as an extra drive like an additional hard disk partition and is very easy to work with. This software module is available in the G DATA Total Security software version.

 Autostart Manager: The Autostart Manager enables you to manage programs that are automatically started when Windows starts. Normally such programs are loaded on system start-up. However, when they are managed by the Autostart Manager, they can also be started with a delay or according to the workload of the system or hard disk. This makes system start-up faster and so improves the performance of your computer.

 Device control: You can use this function to restrict the use of devices such as removable data media, CD/DVD and disk drives for specific users of your computer. In this way for example you can prevent unauthorized importing or exporting of data or software installations. Now also with USB KeyboardGuard. There is more information on this in the Device control section.
