SmrtGuard unveils mobile security suite for Android tablets


SmrtGuard, a mobile security company, announced the
launch of an enhanced version of its SmrtGuard Pro for Android app which now
protects all Android mobile devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops.


The launch is in response to the rapid growth of Android
tablets and the need to protect users’ valuable information.


SmrtGuard Pro
for Android, is available on a free trial basis from the Android marketplace
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 has recently appointed
Feintuch Communications as its agency of record to implement a strategic
communications campaign.


SmrtGuard applications include wireless backup and data
restore, device tracking and wiping, malware protection, call and message
blocking, privacy management and more. Its solutions are sold directly to
customers as well as through mobile operators, OEMs, resellers and other
distribution partners.
