SmrtGuard Launches Mobile Security Suite for Android Tablets
PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In response to the rapid growth of Android tablets and the need to protect users’ valuable information, SmrtGuard, a mobile security company, has launched an enhanced version of its SmrtGuard Pro for Android app which now protects all Android mobile devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops.
SmrtGuard Pro for Android, available on a free trial basis from the Android marketplace (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.smrtguard), provides tablet and other users, with a comprehensive suite of device and data protection services including backup and restore, anti-malware and anti-spam, application transparency and anti-theft and location tracking.
The latest version of the app provides several enhancements to its back-up system, which improves its speed and now includes the ability to backup contact photos. Data that has been backed up to the secure SmrtGuard Web Portal can be accessed remotely from other Android devices and can also be restored to other smartphone devices.
Other popular Pro features include call and SMS blocking, the scheduling of automatic scanning for malware and spam and Application Transparency, which allows users to see what information apps are accessing in order to allow them to take control of their privacy by deleting and reporting the app to SmrtGuard’s SmrtSecurity Resource Center. Apps that are reported as potential threats are further investigated by SmrtGuard to determine if they’re credible or malicious and then placed in the SmrtSecurity database to be flagged as malware for future users. The application also allows the user to track the tablet if it’s lost or stolen and even wipe all information remotely.
“As tablets go mainstream following in the footsteps of smartphones, consumers are realizing they need to protect against the increasing visible and invisible threats to their devices and their personal information,” said Robert Kao, founder and CTO of SmrtGuard.
SmrtGuard Pro for Android is available for immediate download (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.smrtguard). Users can explore its many features during a 30-day trial period after which pricing is $2.49 per month or $17.99 for an entire year for one device.
