SaferSurf Against Viruses
The SaferSurf service activates automatically when receiving eMails. It checks all eMails you receive. Infected files are blocked before they get in touch with your computer.
Always Up to Date
SaferSurf effectively protects you from viruses without installation and maintenance of any antivirus software. The real-time scanning does not affect your internet connection speed. The antivirus software used is continuously updated for you. New viruses are recognized without fail as soon as the antivirus software provides countermeasures for the viruses. This usually happens within minutes.
No Chance for Camouflage
Viruses do not come into contact with your computer. Even files which have been camouflaged, e.g. by an incorrect file extension, are recognized. The content-sensitive SaferSurf scan reads a Word file as a Word file even when it carries the file extension .DOX.
Detection of Hidden Viruses
Viruses hidden in compressed files are detected effectively and the infected files are removed. This applies even to very well hidden viruses in intricately placed files.
SaferSurf Obtains Certificate of the Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV)
From 2005 to 2009 SaferSurf was presented to the Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV). Every year they came to the following conclusion: "The online antivirus protection of SaferSurf shows a very good performance in the field of detecting the most common computer virus. Also favorably is that the online virus scanner did not give false alarms in the test and did not cause a noticeable deceleration of data traffic."
