CES 2012: Trend Micro and Verizon bring mobile security app smartphone and tablet users

By Telecom Lead Team: Mobile major Verizon Wireless and
Trend Micro, a global cloud security company, announced that Trend
Micro Mobile Security Personal Edition is now available in Verizon Apps on
select Verizon Wireless Android devices.

 

The Mobile Security Personal Edition for
Android addresses a need for cyber security on mobile devices. The app
offers an easy solution for Verizon Wireless customers to help keep personal
information on their Android devices safe.

 

Verizon customers can take advantage of key features,
including an app scanner, lost device protection and enhanced security to block
threats as well as inappropriate content while surfing the Web, calling or
texting.

 

“Smartphones are a key form of communication today
and contain the type of irreplaceable personal information hackers find most
valuable.  This is why we’re excited to be able to offer Verizon Wireless’
customers an application that can protect their personal information, keep
their kids safe online and help recover a lost device,” said Carol
Carpenter, general manager, Consumer Division at Trend Micro.

 

Verizon Wireless’ mobile storefront, Verizon Apps
(formerly V CAST Apps), is available on select smartphones and delivers
thousands of apps and games to Verizon Wireless customers.

 

Verizon
customers can download Trend Micro Mobile Security Personal Edition from
Verizon Apps in the Utilities category.  Trend Micro Mobile Security
Personal Edition is available for a $2.50 monthly subscription
or $30 per year.

 

Last year,
Trend Micro had announced an agreement with KDDI to provide a new security service
for Android smartphones and tablets. KDDI is a Japanese telecom provider with
over 33 million mobile subscribers.
