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.
