Acknowledging the growing cybercrime threat specifically targeting smartphones, Kaspersky Lab has developed the Kaspersky Mobile Security software to ensure that smartphone users remain protected anytime and anywhere.
With people becoming increasingly dependent on their smartphones to access important data or even use these for electronic commerce, it’s no surprise that cybercriminals have set their sights on these devices too.
The Kaspersky Mobile Security is integrated with a number of technologies from Kaspersky Lab. It helps protect private data by scanning for viruses and spyware, blocks dangerous phishing websites, filters unwanted calls and SMS, and hides private contacts.
If the smartphone is stolen, Kaspersky Mobile Security can lock the missing phone, locate it and wipe out data. Kaspersky Mobile Security also has features that run even if the device SIM card is removed. Awesome features include:
“Smartphone will continue to grow in demand among Filipinos especially with prices of devices coming down and telecommunications companies are offering new services with affordable plans that maximize the various features of smartphones. The reality is that cybercriminals will find it hard not to notice that smartphones hold a lot of important information. This free six-month offer of our Kaspersky Mobile Security is intended to encourage people to understand these threats and to take steps in protecting their devices and the data stored in these devices against attacks,” said Jimmy Fong, Channel Sales Director of Kaspersky Lab Southeast Asia.
