A recent independent study from AV-Test.org picked out Kaspersky Mobile Security as one of only two products (from a sample of 41) which successfully countered all malicious programs. Most of the so-called competition failed miserably to provide even basic protection against an ever-growing number of malicious apps targeting mobile devices. Overall, the evaluation by AV-Test.org conducted in early 2012, had given the ‘green light’ to just seven products, while 18 solutions detected less than 40% of malware samples and six of them failed to spot a single piece of rogue code.
Victor Dronov, Senior Product Manager, Kaspersky Lab, commented: “Recently the number of mobile malware samples in our database has exceeded 10 thousand. That is why we believe it’s essential to have a security solution on your Android smartphone. We are pleased with the results of independent testing by AV-Test.org – they confirm the efficiency of our product as a whole, and endorse our recently introduced combination of traditional and cloud-based security technologies in particular. These results also clearly demonstrate that our product is a market leader, among both free and paid-for products.”
