ESET has launched a new all-in-one security app for keeping your Android devices safe from viruses and malware.
According to a report by Gartner, Android accounted for an estimated market share of over 60 percent in 2012 – which is great news for Google, but has also put its operating system at an increased risk of cybercrime this year.
“The rise of mobile malware combined with the popularity of Android devices creates a perfect storm of cyber security risk,” said Palo Luka, ESET Chief Technology Officer. “ESET is excited to offer a completely rebuilt version of our mobile security app with advanced features that protect your sensitive data from threats, giving you peace of mind when browsing the Internet or downloading applications.”
ESET Mobile security is free to download from Google Play, but there are two levels of protection available. While users will benefit from many of the app’s features for an unlimited period, you’ll need to upgrade to the full version for ESET’s comprehensive security package.
We recommend that you do. The new app betters the previous version with a new and improved system scan, anti-phishing and a completely redesigned interface. There’s also SMS and call filtering, as well as a handy startup wizard for getting started.
The idea behind ESET Mobile Security is simple – helping you to enjoy a safer mobile experience without having to worry about real-world or digital threats. The new design looks the part too, tweaked for tablets with both portrait and landscape orientation.
Ignacio Sbampato, ESET’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer explained: “One of our goals with the new version of ESET Mobile Security for Android was to make protection easier to use for our customers. Our new user interface and the new setup wizards have been created because we know that mobile users are looking for simple and powerful security products that are easy to configure and don’t require a lot of interactions neither consume a lot of resources.”
“The new version has been built with the mobile users in mind so our product can protect them while they enjoy their mobile adventures.”
