G Data Software Marks 25th Anniversary With North American Launch

One of the World's First Antivirus Providers, G Data Security Solutions Consistently Returns Detection Rates of 99% by Leading Benchmarks

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - A pioneer in antivirus solutions for 25 years, G Data Software will officially launch in the North America market at the RSA Conference (booth #2727), in San Francisco, February 14 - 18. The company will bring to market security solutions that consistently achieve 99% efficacy as proven by annual industry benchmarking by AV-Comparatives and the Virus Bulletin.

Founded in 1985 in Bochum, Germany, G Data Software has offices and distribution networks in more than 80 countries and markets products in 24 languages worldwide. In 2010, the company established operations in North America, located in the heart of Durham, North Carolina's Research Triangle Park.

Leading operations in North America will be Ed Johnson, Senior Vice President. Prior to joining G Data Software, Ed served as CIO for LGS Innovations, COO for Blue Wolf Technologies, CIO for NC Department of Justice, and also held other senior leadership positions over his nearly 30 years in the industry.

"The job of securing our financial and personal identities, our corporate IP and business operations is paramount," said Ed Johnson. "Hacktivism, botnet mergers, complex malware and data theft are growing at a clip that single-engine solutions just can't keep up with. What we're doing is combining our own proprietary technology with two of the best performing commercial scanning engines to provide the best protection available on the market today."
