Protecting smartphones

1 October 2008

Kaspersky Lab has released Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0, which offers powerful protection for data stored on smartphones in the event that the device is lost, as well as protecting against network attacks, malware and SMS spam.
Key new functions allow users to completely block a lost device or to remotely delete the data on it.
Moreover, if a smartphone is stolen, the SIM-Watch function prevents the thief from accessing data on the phone without the original SIM card; as soon as the original SIM card is replaced, a message notifies its owner of the new telephone number.
Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 scans incoming files and network connections in realtime, performing antivirus scans of the whole device on demand or on schedule. The product also blocks messages from unwanted or incorrect numbers, as well as SMS messages containing words or phrases entered by the user into a blacklist.
