ESET launches new and improved mobile protection for Android at Mobile Asia Expo
SHANGHAI, – ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection with a record of 10 consecutive years winning the prestigious VB100 awards with the company's flagship ESET NOD32® security products, has announced the availability of the enhanced ESET Mobile Security in Asia Pacific.
The award winning ESET Mobile Security has been updated to include proactive Anti-Theft features, which helps Android users track lost or stolen mobile devices through an easy-to-use web interface at http://my.eset.com. While the basic protection is free for a lifetime, it's up to users to decide if they want to subscribe and benefit from Premium features.
Proactive Anti-Theft detects potentially dangerous situations and takes preventative steps to ease the localization of stolen or lost device. The new functionality for Premium users sends the last location of the device when the battery hits critical level, takes snapshots from front and back camera when the wrong PIN/pattern is entered or an unauthorized SIM change is detected. All data on the device is accessible via the my.eset.com web interface.
ESET Mobile Security provides set of strong security features improving the Android experience without worrying about cyber threats and comes in free and premium versions. The free version of the application provides basic protection including full device scan, scan of downloaded applications items and basic Anti-Theft functionalities. All Premium features are unlocked after activating the 30-day trial or buying the license. In the premium version users will find Scheduled scanning, On-Charger scan, advanced Proactive Anti-Theft functionalities, including my.eset.com integration, SMS&Call filter and Security Audit.
Also introduced recently is an updated version of ESET Secure Authentication in Asia Pacific. Initially available only in selected regions, ESET's updated two-factor authentication (2FA) application provides the potent combination of ultra-secure access to online applications, while introducing even greater ease of installation and support, for a super overall user experience. The added integration flexibility provided by the Software Development Kit (SDK) and API extends protection to a wider range of applications and data, making ESET Secure Authentication one of the most unique and compelling 2FA solutions on the market.
"The adoption of smartphones and tablets is growing at a rapid rate in Asia Pacific, with Android being the most popular OS with 59% market share. We rely on mobile devices in both our personal and professional lives to communicate, store data and even make financial transactions. Losing your device or experiencing a security breach is stressful and can put a lot of sensitive data at-risk," said Parvinder Walia, Sales Director at ESET Asia Pacific. "Over the past year, we have received valuable feedback from our users on the importance of quick, efficient and easy device location and tracking and 2FA for added security. We're proud to launch our new and improved versions of ESET Mobile Security and ESET Secure Authentication with features to better protect your mobile and online experience."
