Infotech Lead America: AVG Technologies, a provider of Internet and mobile security solutions, has launched AVG Mobilation AntiVirus Free for Android 2.12.
AVG Mobilation AntiVirus Free for Android 2.12 is designed to protect Android-based devices from viruses, malware, spyware and online exploitation in real-time.
Recently, IDC said Android is the top operating system for new smartphones with 59 percent market share. Leading security firms agree the OS has become the principle mobile phone operating system targeted by cybercriminals.
“Since the launch of our mobile security products in 2009, we have witnessed tremendous growth in the mobile space,” said JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies.
Within months, millions of people downloaded free AVG Mobilation AntiVirus application for Android smartphones and over 250,000 users have given it a 4 or 5 stars review on Google Play.
The new features in version 2.12 include a helpful data monitor feature that notifies users as they approach their monthly data limit and the ability to scan APK (Android application) files straight from the file system.
“Cybercriminals see this as a significant opportunity and are developing increasingly sophisticated, socially engineered attacks to catch the unwary and trusting user. Our Mobilation products are designed to provide protection from the latest threats so that people don’t have to worry,” said Omri Sigelman, AVG’s vice president marketing and sales of mobile solutions.
The company is offering AVG Mobilation AntiVirus Free for Android 2.12 in English, German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (simplified & traditional), Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Italian, Polish, Czech, Dutch and Hebrew.
