Hello ! :)
Today we will test Gdata and see how it protects a computer.
Gdata Software is a German company that is well known to the public.
In the past, it used Bitdefender + Avast as its antivirus engine. In 2014, Avast left its place for their in-house engine, CloseGap.
The interface of Gdata is very old, not updated since... 2014... 7 years old....
Despite its age, it remains clear, the antivirus is well configured by default.
In terms of protection, Gdata is solid... except on 2 points.
In terms of protection from known malware, Gdata does an excellent score and even makes up for it with its virus base and its pro-active BEAST module!
On the other hand, in Phishing detection it is to be reviewed because it is too weak.
I would like to come back to its system named BEAST, which allows to identify malicious behaviors very quickly and to intercept the attack.
On paper, it is an excellent idea, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
Although it has stopped infections with this module, it unfortunately lets my home Ransomware through, taking the computer hostage. Gdata did not react at all!
Remember also on the pack, Gdata took 1 minute to scan, but 1h40 to delete, which is too long!
Despite the misstep on my Ransomware, Gdata is still a very good antivirus, but some gaps are still there.

RAM Usage : Medium
Phishing Test : 2/5 (3 missed)
Malware URL test : 10/10 (all detected)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected by database and BEAST BB)
Malware Pack : Remaining 52 files.
Home Malware : 0/1 => MBR Blocked by my malware. End of the test

With all due respect, but I don't take "youtube testers" seriously, we already have experienced testers on this site, I don't think this kind of artificial video test here on the site is cool. Just my opinion!
If you don't like some material you can just keep scrolling, there's no need to point fingers on nobody :)

Hello,

Thank you for your advice, but I'll tell you no.
Everyone has a place on MalwareTips, whether it's me or the other testers.
I and the others do the same: A new VM, under Windows, with an antivirus (which is configured or not) and we evaluate. That's it.

Of course you have the right to give your opinion, but sorry if you don't like my videos, we can't please everyone ^^

PS : Of course I am a tester, but I also look at others ;) (I don't call them "competitors" I hate that word, but colleagues) like @harlan4096 / @upnorth , CS Solution, League Of Antivirus etc )

Everyone is better with more testing even bad testing by small YouTubers can be beneficial by bringing more people into security related places like forums , jobs etc

5 samples as phishing test is a bit low to judge a product. But the web protection is not top notch compared to other products. There signatures are great with the dual engine. Beast and deepray are great technologies but they seem to struggle with the latest ransomwares.
