Mobile device security, long neglected by device makers, Internet software makers and end users, is increasingly becoming a high priority. Mobile is the direction of computing these days, and hackers are approaching the popular mobile platforms as targets of opportunity.
Comodo is stepping up to meet the need for mobile security.
Comodo today announced the release of version 2.4 of our free mobile antivirus app for Android devices. Comodo Mobile Security (CMS) 2.4 has enhanced cloud scanning which improves malware discovery through utilizing both local and cloud-based detection engines.
Major enhancements for CMS 2.4 include:
- Cloud antivirus scans. CMS now scans for malware using both local and cloud-based detection engines.
- Support for Android KitKat® (4.4).
- Added language support for Arabic, Bulgarian, Greek, English, Spanish, Farsi, French, Italian, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Chinese.
- New layout and GUI design offers easier navigation, new icons and new backgrounds.
“Like a computer, your smartphone contains a tremendous amount of personal information,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and Chief Security Architect. “That’s why we offer the same level of protection for your phone that we offer for your computer. If it connects to the Internet, it needs protection, regardless of the device being used.”
“We have seen many positive reviews from our customers who are very happy to have features like anti-theft protection, backup, and the ability to intercept unwanted calls that make CMS more than just a mobile security suite. Unlike other mobile security apps that must be paid for, our users appreciate the fact that they have access to great security features for free with CMS.”
Comodo Mobile Security provides real-time protection against known and emerging threats on Android mobile devices while helping to protect user privacy and keep mobile devices optimized. CMS combines a mobile-optimized antivirus scanner with a mobile security manager to safeguard users against viruses, unsafe apps and potentially risky settings. CMS features SMS and call blocking which allows users to filter out annoying calls and text messages by creating white and black contact lists. Anti-theft protection allows users to remotely locate, lock or wipe a device if it is mislaid or stolen.
