Kaspersky Lab has officially launched its mobile security solutions in India that, apart from protecting your smartphones from malware and network attacks, enables you to locate your lost phone, protect data as well as block unwanted calls and SMSs.
The Kaspersky Mobile Security 9.0 is available in Android and BlackBerry platforms alongside Symbian and Windows Mobile.
Smartphones like Blackberry and Android phones are gaining more and more popularity in the Indian market. According to a research, Indian consumers are expected to buy 12 million smartphones in 2011. This growth definitely is a precursor to the number of trojans and malware that may be aimed at the smartphones.
With KMS 9.0, you just need to push one button to hide selected contacts and their contact data, including call histories, contact list entries and SMSs, and mute their calls. Contacts can also be hidden automatically after a preset idle period or remotely by sending a predefined SMS. You can also filter out unwanted calls and SMSs by creating a white list and a black list of contacts.
The solution allows you to wipe confidential files or block them remotely by sending a special SMS; locate your lost device with the help of the GPS Find tool; or block your phone and be notified of its new number if the SIM card is replaced.
Mobile users running Symbian or Windows Mobile operating systems can password protect and encrypt their files with a strong encryption algorithm. The GPS Find feature will help you pinpoint your smartphone’s current location, and if Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 is installed on your child’s device, you can always locate them quickly and easily.
The Parental Control module in Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 lets you restrict which numbers your children and other vulnerable individuals can call, such as premium-rate numbers, and allows you to control who calls them.
KMS 9 is available for Rs 599. More detailed information about KMS 9 is available at www.kaspersky.co.in
