eWeek, By Fahmida Rashid
Kaspersky Lab announces new privacy, anti-malware and anti-theft features for Android and BlackBerry users in its latest Mobile Security 9 suite.
Kaspersky Lab expanded its mobile security platform to include Android and BlackBerry devices, the company said on Feb. 22. Kaspersky already supported Windows Mobile and Symbian, the company said.
The security features in Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 are not currently available for all four mobile platforms, however. While anti-theft features such as using the phone’s GPS to track down the location of the device and remotely wiping information are available for Windows Mobile, Symbian, Android and BlackBerry, encryption and parental controls are available only for Windows Mobile and Symbian, according to Kaspersky.
