The recent increase in smartphones usage and the associated increase in data and application usage on these devices have increased the security risk.
As these devices contain personal information, using for financial transactions, accessing internet, users need to protect their phones from malware, viruses, data loss and more.
Dr.Web, the popular security company has released a beta version of antivirus software for Android phones. It scans the entire file system of the phone including the phone’s memory where applications files are stored for malware.
If the file monitor is running, Dr.Web for Android automatically scans each program installed into the device’s memory as well as each file written onto an SD card. Malicious objects detected are moved to the quarantine.
