Mobile Security for Android

— August 13, 2013

“If Android malware risks weren’t enough, Android device loss and theft are an enormous issue, especially considering that more than 100 cell phones are lost or stolen every minute just in the US alone,” said Thomas Lippert, Senior Product Manager, Mobile, Sophos.

“Mobile malware leads to data loss and unexpected cost issues, while actual device loss and theft leads to potentially much worse. Either way, it’s imperative for users to ensure their devices are protected.”

In response to this risk, Sophos has introduced the latest version of its free Android security app, Sophos Mobile Security 3.0, its full-featured mobile security and anti-virus application.

The app protects the start of selected applications with a password, meaning users can let others use their phone without risking corporate data security. Users can protect settings or Google Play app and any other mobile application.

In addition, with faster scanning capabilities, users can significantly improve scan speed by leveraging the power of multi- core phones. Also, web protection, now included in the free app, blocks access to malicious or phishing websites.
