AV test confirms the high level of protection provided by G DATA Mobile Security Android

Mobile security app convinces in the current AV-TEST comparison test with 100 percent detection rate and above-average performance

With G DATA Mobile Security Android, Android users are well protected against malware. In the latest comparative test by the renowned research institute AV-TEST, the G DATA solution achieved a convincing result and received full marks in all three categories.

In November 2019, the independent research institute AV-TEST examined a total of 21 security solutions for Android from various manufacturers for their protection against current threats. All security solutions had to demonstrate their capabilities using all functions and levels of protection. The testers also paid attention to the performance and battery consumption of the applications. In their investigations, the research institute only considered realistic test scenarios and tested the products against current threats.

G DATA Mobile Security Android convinced with a one hundred percent detection rate in both categories. The solution reliably detected all malicious Android applications used in the test. The security app was also convincing in terms of performance and battery consumption. The G DATA solution once again received full marks in all three areas - protection, speed and usability.

Google Play Protect was once again conspicuous in this test. Google's own security solution once again failed to detect more than 3,000 malicious applications and classified 45 clean applications as malicious, once again bringing it to the bottom of the test.

Key features in G DATA Mobile Security Android:

  • Security against phishing and malicious websites via Cloud-based detection
  • Protection against infected apps: The app checker verifies the permissions of apps and issues warnings about inquisitive apps
  • Protection against Android malware: The Cloud connection enables the resource-saving Advanced Scan to detect all malware and stay fully up-to-date at all times
  • Customisable SMS and call filter to block telemarketing calls, etc.
  • Protection if the device is lost or stolen: If the smartphone or tablet is lost, all the data stored on it can be deleted, or the device can be locked or located.
  • Comprehensive, configurable parental controls so children can also use the mobile device.
