Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 goes BlackBerry and Android 1
Kaspersky Lab has announced that Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 is now available for BlackBerry and Android smartphone owners, in addition to Windows Mobile and Symbian devices. Available for purchase across North America, Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 now offers anti-theft and privacy features for the world's four most-popular mobile operating systems -- Symbian, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, and Android.

Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 ensures a lost or stolen smartphone is only an inconvenience, and not a devastating loss of personal data that can lead to identity theft and financial fraud. The new version of Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 gives Android and BlackBerry users a solution to the most common problem associated with smartphones -- lost or stolen devices. Whether the smartphone is stolen from a table in a coffee shop, or simply left in the backseat of a taxi, BlackBerry and Android owners can now track their device and remotely secure their data. This ensures pictures, personal contacts, downloaded documents, and banking credentials never fall into the wrong hands. These data protection tools, which are available for BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian devices, include: SMS Find, Remote Block and Delete, and SIM Watch.

Also new to the Android and BlackBerry platforms, Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 can be used to control incoming and outgoing content, allowing users to easily block spam text messages and phone calls from unwanted numbers. This ensures no more text-message spam, and no more annoying phone calls from telemarketers or other unwanted callers.

With Kaspersky Mobile Security 9, Android users now have the best anti-malware protection from rouge software or applications on the constantly-expanding Android landscape. Android smartphones using Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 will be equipped with an antivirus scanner to protect against all known types of mobile malware, preventing malicious programmers from hampering the phone's functionality or capturing mobile data.

Android smartphones also benefit from Kaspersky Mobile Security 9's Privacy Protection features, which allow users to keep certain contacts and all communication with those select contacts -- including calls and SMS texts sent and received -- hidden from prying eyes. While in Kaspersky's Privacy Protection mode, selected contacts will not appear in the phone's address book, the phone will not ring if they call, and there will be no notification if they send an SMS message. Once the user enters a code to disable Privacy Protection, all missed notifications will then appear.

Ideal for ensuring sensitive communications stay private while on-the-job or in other public settings, Privacy Protection can also be used as a filter during times when users don't wish to be interrupted. For example, instead of turning the phone off, a user can place all contacts except for family members into Privacy Protection mode. This prevents unnecessary interruptions during an important business meeting, but ensures the user can still be reached in an emergency.

There's also additional Security for Windows Mobile and Symbian Smartphones. Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 also offers a range of security tools for Windows Mobile and Symbian smartphones, including: Mobile Content Filtering and Advanced Data Encryption.

The new version of Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 is a subscription-based offering available now for purchase through the Kaspersky online store at www.kaspersky.com for $29.95 per license, renewable annually. The software is compatible with all smartphones using the Symbian OS (versions 9.1 through 9.4 or higher), Windows Mobile (5.0, 6.0, 6.1 or 6.5), BlackBerry (4.5 - 6.0), and Android (1.6 - 2.2).
