Avira, company that specializes in providing antivirus, firewall, antispam, and data recovery solutions against malware infection for Windows and Linux users, has announced the release of the latest version of its security software application that provides malware protection for mobile phones, smartphones and PDAs – AntiVir Mobile. The latest version of Antivir Mobile comes with enhanced scanning technology, blacklist/whitelist functionality and Windows Mobile 6.5 support.

“Avira AntiVir Mobile provides effective protection for data on smartphones, PDAs and pocket PCs against manipulation, destruction and theft. As well as the usual high detection rates, the latest version of the software also features a massive increase in virus scanning speed. The security solution was equipped with file caching technology for this purpose. This makes a note of already checked files and skips them the next time a virus search is run. However, as soon as a file is opened again with write privileges, AntiVir Mobile detects the change and checks the file for infections once again,” commented Avira.

In brief, here is what you can expect to get from the latest version of Avira AntivirMobile, besides the high and speedy detection rates:
- As soon as malware is detected, the user is prompted about this and the infected files are deleted immediately.
- Only minimal amounts of RAM are required to run Antivir Mobile. For this reason Antivir Mobile can provide adequate protection without negatively impacting the battery life or capacity of the mobile device.
- The user can tailor functions such as scan-on-sync or real-time protection to suit his individual needs.
- Scand depth can be defined on an individual basis.
- Antivir Mobile can scan the ROM and can automatically scan memory cards when they are inserted into the mobile device.
- Integrated SMS protection that checks incoming messages for hidden threats.
- You can set blacklists and never be annoyed by certain messages.
- You can set whitelists as well.
- Antivir Mobile updates are delivered in small data packets. You can get these updates when syncing via WLAN or via GPRS.
- Supports Windows Mobile 5 through 6.5

You can purchase Avira Antivir Mobile from the Avira Online Shop.
