The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) warns against the anti-virus products of the Russian manufacturer Kaspersky. There is a "considerable risk of a successful IT attack" from the Russian side, according to the BSI. The Russian IT manufacturer could also be forced to attack systems against its will or even become a victim of a cyber attack itself without its knowledge. Antivirus software usually has far-reaching system authorisations on users' computers. Therefore, great trust in the reliability of the software used is extremely important.
The BSI therefore strongly recommends the use of alternative solutions. As a Gold Partner of the cyber defence experts of the German manufacturer G-DATA, we can offer you absolutely mature and tested virus protection software tailored to your needs. In independent tests, the solutions from G DATA do not allow themselves any weaknesses. Another big advantage is G DATA's German location, which allows support requests within Germany or the same time zone to be processed as quickly as possible, saving you important time in the event of an attack.
