Kaspersky Lab releases Kaspersky Anti-Virus Mobile
Posted on 6-Feb-2007 10:31 | Tags Filed under: News



Kaspersky Lab has announced Kaspersky Anti-Virus Mobile, a product that protects mobile phones using Symbian and Windows Mobile operating systems against mobile malware. Kaspersky Anti-Virus Mobile is a fully functional, integrated security solution that protects smartphones from malicious programs and unsolicited SMS/MMS messages, and this latest version now includes a range of new technologies and features that improve the program’s performance and make it more user-friendly.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Mobile uses a combination of real-time antivirus protection and on-demand scanning to protect against threats, and also provides protection from unwanted SMS/MMS messages by blacklisting undesirable phone numbers. Real-time antivirus protection monitors wireless connections and scans EMS/MMS messages, as well any data received from a PC during synchronization. Its flexible settings allow the user to view the phone’s antivirus status as well as the event log, which records all actions performed by the program.

The software includes an antivirus database update feature which ensures that the smartphone is protected against the latest malicious programs. Updates can either be installed automatically by a built-in scheduler, or on demand. Database updates are downloaded via WAP or HTTP from Kaspersky Lab servers.

Kasperski Labs says that when compared to previous versions of mobile phone protection systems, the new-generation solution offers significantly enhanced functionality based on a much more extensive set of tools that process scanned objects and protect from IT threats. Kaspersky Anti-Virus Mobile includes a number of previously unavailable features, such as scanning of individual objects (files or folders) and isolation of infected objects in quarantine storage to prevent deletion of important information. The antivirus protection has become even more reliable due to the feature of unpacking and scanning the contents of .sis files, which are often used by cybercriminals for distributing malicious code. Optimization of the product’s antivirus engine also results in higher performance levels.

The product can be installed on smartphones that are based on Symbian operating system versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x – Series 60, 80 or UIQ, or Windows Mobile 2003 (for Smartphones, Phone Edition) and 5.0.
