Commtouch's New Mobile Security for Android Combats Fast-Growing Number of Mobile Threats
OEM-focused service with an Android SDK is the first to combine antivirus and Web security

MCLEAN, Virginia, January 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH), a leading provider of Internet security technology and cloud-based services, today announced general availability of its new Mobile Security for Android. It is the first-ever OEM solution that offers cloud-assisted antivirus and Web security services delivered through a single, easy to integrate client SDK for the popular mobile operating system.

The more than 400 million Android devices around the globe are an appealing hotbed of opportunity for cyber criminals. In 2012, Commtouch's lab saw a steep increase from 6,000 Android-specific threats in January to more than 360,000 by year-end. The escalating threat includes multi-functional Trojans that steal data, send texts to premium-rate numbers, and steal credentials and phone data from end users.

The alarming growth rate of threats illustrates a clear need for vendors and service providers in the mobile space to add security functionality for the protection of their end users. Designed specifically for the OEM market, Commtouch's new Mobile Security for Android offers proven antivirus and Web security technology backed by a global infrastructure that organizations can easily add to their products and services. It offers:

  • Superior detection of known and previously unseen Android malware with heuristic and hash-based scanning
  • Secure mobile browsing and prevention of mobile phishing attacks
  • Scanning of files, apps, SMS, MMS and email attachments
  • Complete flexibility with on-demand and on-access scanning

The Mobile Security service and its client-based SDK use very little memory, bandwidth and battery time, leveraging the threat detection power of Commtouch's global cloud infrastructure instead of client-side resources. The SDK supports partner applications that deliver best-of-breed end-user experience.

Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android was designed to offer essential and quick differentiation for vendors and service providers, including:

  • Mobile Device Management (MDM) providers
  • Mobile business app developers
  • Device manufacturers
  • SaaS providers
  • App stores
  • Security vendors

"There's no question that protection against Android-specific threats is needed now more than ever," said Helmuth Freericks, vice president of antivirus products at Commtouch. "The new offering provides OEM partners with the unique opportunity to offer integrated antivirus and Web security for Android environments. We have specifically designed the SDK to be easily integrated - allowing our partners to rapidly provide added value to customers with mobile security technology that continually outperforms the competition."

About Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android

Designed specifically for the OEM market, Commtouch's Mobile Security for Android enables vendors and service providers to differentiate their offerings with easy-to-integrate antivirus and Web security capabilities that consistently defeat Android threats. The SDK won't impact device performance or user experience while detecting both known and previously unseen malware. To learn more, visit
