Security company Kaspersky Lab recently introduced a new, powerful protection solution for Android-powered smartphones and tablets: Kaspersky Internet Security for Android.

In 2012, Kaspersky Lab uncovered 35,000 different malicious programs that target the Android mobile operating system. Since Android keeps growing in popularity, it is becoming a more enticing target for cybercriminals. And since more and more people start using Android-powered smartphones and tablets, keeping these users safe and protected has become imperative. To effectively combat malware that targets Android smartphones and tablets, security company Kaspersky Lab has recently released Kaspersky Internet Security for Android.

Online Protection
To protect Android-powered devices from various malware threats, Kaspersky Internet Security for Android uses traditional signature-based antivirus protection, real-time updates from the Kaspersky Security Network, integrated behavioral technologies, and web surfing protection (links to phishing and malicious websites are detected and blocked).

Real Life Protection
In real life, Android-powered devices can be lost or they can get stolen. To address this situation, Kaspersky Internet Security for Android can locate, remotely block, and remotely delete data from lost or stolen Android devices. The app can also show you who has your Android – it can secretly take a photo of the thief.

Free or Premium
The Free edition comes with on-demand scanning, remote management functionality, and the option to filter calls and texts.
The Premium edition comes with automatic scanning, real-time protection, web protection, and features to manage personal info (like for example the option to hide messages).

“Whenever we develop a security solution, we start by thinking about exactly what the users need,” commented Dmitry Aleshin, Director Product Management at Kaspersky Lab. “bviously, tablet and smartphone users face a double risk – they may fall victim to both cybercriminals and ordinary thieves. That is why Kaspersky Internet Security for Android has added remote device management functions to its antivirus and anti-phishing technologies. We also understand that the main task of any antivirus company is to ensure the safety of users. So we have made many features of our solutions freely available.”
