G DATA NotebookSecurity – data thieves don’t stand a chance
By now, two-thirds of all newly acquired PCs are notebooks. At the same time, notebooks need more protection than desktop PCs.

Data loss through an increased risk of hardware damage is also an important issue. G DATA NotebookSecurity is the first hardware/software combination that is specifically tailored to these threats. The new special solution combines G DATA InternetSecurity with backup, security tuning, data encryption, and a notebook lock. Thieves will find G DATA NotebookSecurity to be a hard nut to crack!
