Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android

Malware targeting the Android operating system is increasing in complexity as well as in volume as high-powered mobile devices operating on Android become more common in the enterprise. Designed specifically for the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market, Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android offering enables mobile device management (MDM) and allows security vendors, service providers, app developers, mobile carriers and device manufacturers to differentiate their offerings while developing powerful antivirus and Web security capabilities that consistently defeat fast-growing Android threats.

Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android consists of a combined antivirus software development kit (SDK) with Web security backed by the Commtouch GlobalView Cloud. Once integrated, the Mobile Security SDK downloads malware detection rules and signatures automatically from the GlobalView Cloud.

Specifications include:

  • Small-definition files tailored for Android/mobile;
  • Scanned files, apps, SMS, MMS, email attachments;
  • Android 2.2 and up;
