Kaspersky introduces tablet security solution
Dubai, May 3, 2012
Kaspersky Lab has introduced the all-new Kaspersky Tablet Security, a tailored solution for protecting Android-based tablets.
In developing the program, Kaspersky Lab’s specialists factored in all the specific characteristics of tablets, with the result being a specialised security solution that ensures both protection against malicious and fraudulent software, and the inviolability of personal data in case of loss or theft of a device.
The solution provides the ultimate protection against all kinds of cybercriminal activity, specifically designed for Android-based tablets, a statement from Kaspersky said.
Its anti-virus engine, working together with cloud-based protection technology, efficiently blocks all malicious programmes, even new and previously unknown ones.
Kaspersky Tablet Security also introduces the web protection feature, which helps block malicious or fraudulent websites while using the Android browser, the statement said.
It can also remotely block a lost or stolen device or wipe all its personal data. The programme can determine the location of a lost or stolen tablet, not only via GPS, but also via mobile network data (GSM) or the coordinates of the nearest Wi-Fi access point.
The mugshot function can secretly take photos of a person using a lost or stolen tablet with its built-in camera, and transfer them to the owner of the device, it said.
The interface of the product is crafted specifically to suit Android-based tablets, recognising their similarities to, as well as differences from, smartphones and PCs.
Victor Dronov, senior product manager of Kaspersky Lab, said: “The number of devices you use in your everyday life is increasing. The internet and your favorite apps always being to hand, even on the go - this is great. But at the same time, should a mobile device be lost, all our personal data can be put at risk: email messages, social network access, passwords, mobile banking data, photos, videos and more.”
“Besides, malicious and fraudulent programs can also cause much inconvenience, or worse - financial losses. With Kaspersky Tablet Security users can forget about these risks and enjoy the mobility of their digital life.”
“With Kaspersky Tablet Security you can be sure that the data on your Android tablet stays secure,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
