Before you go get ESET Mobile Security Beta for Android, perhaps you may want to know what the application has to offer. Here are its main features:
- Optimized to offer real-time protection without slowing down your Android-powered device. Using proactive heuristics technology, apps, files, folders, memory cards are continually scanned for trojans, viruses, worms, spyware, adware, phishing, spam, and other threats.
- Several features in case your Android is stolen: remote lock, remote wipe, GPS localization.

"As Android-powered smartphones and tablets become increasingly popular, the users often rely on them to store and process significant amounts of sensitive data, in many cases without realizing the risk of putting all that data on a small portable device. What's more, personal information intended to be kept private is continually shared or transferred wirelessly. Files, emails, text and multimedia messages deserve the highest level of protection in order to avoid misuse when placed in the wrong hands. ESET Mobile Security is our answer to rising security concerns in the mobile device sector," said Mobile Security Specialist at ESET, Miroslav Majtaz.
