Protect your mobile world with Mobile Security
Security solutions provider ESET has announced the release of its flagship product for the mobile Android platform.
ESET Mobile Security is designed specifically for Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian platforms and features a unique behavior-based detection system, meaning that it continually scans for emerging threats and warns users of any suspicious activity against their phone.
The software ensures users can apply multiple layers of security to maintain control over phone-stored data. There is also an option to remotely block the phone to prevent unauthorised access to the phone’s data if it is lost or stolen. SMS/MMS antispam defines trustworthy contacts via customisable black or whitelists, or users can simply block message traffic from unknown numbers.
Also included is the built-in task manager, which enables users to stay informed about all vital phone functions, including battery life, free disk space, running processes, Bluetooth and device visibility. There is also a ‘trusted friend‘ setting to give the user the option to assign a contact or telephone number that can receive an alert SMS if an unknown SIM card is inserted into the phone. The trusted friend is also able to reset the user’s forgotten password if needed.
As the last instance of protecting your privacy, the remote wipe function deletes all phone-stored data remotely using an SMS command to wipe clean all your contacts, messages and memory cards.Article continues below
