The newly-released DroidSecurity Internet Security Suite , spam,is a low-cost, anti-malware and physical security app for Google’s Android operating system. It provides a wide-range of protection against viruses/malware and SMS/text spam, plus allows users to track lost smartphones and remotely wipe data.
This software suite includes:
- VirusFree & VirusFree Pro: Inspects and cleans Android smartphones from malware, viruses, SMS spam and suspect applications.
- FindR: Tracks and locates lost/stolen phones, enables remote memory clearing.
- CheckMate: Manages the security rating of Android, and issues warnings on suspect security profiles.
“Smartphones today are essentially unsecured mini-computers hosting your e-mail, documents, contact lists and much more,” said Eran Pfeffer, chief executive officer at DroidSecurity. “Smartphones, and their future Android-powered netbook cousins, are much more prone to being lost — and therefore physically falling in the wrong hands. People are worried about security, yet are depending on cloud apps because of hardware limitations, opening up new attack vectors.”

DroidSecurity Internet Security Suite is available now for $4.99. It can be downloaded from www.droidsecurity.com.
