The antivirus application features:
- VirusFree & VirusFree Pro: Inspects and cleans Android smartphones from malware, viruses, SMS spam and suspect applications to secure device integrity.
- FindR: Tracks and locates lost/stolen phones, enables remote memory clearing to protect data privacy.
- CheckMate: Manages the security rating of Android and issues warnings on suspect security profiles.
Though there is only one known threat to Android devices, the company is expecting (as is the head of Google Android’s security team) that as the Android platform becomes more popular and widely-used, it will become more of a target for attacks and threats.
It also expects that though Android isn’t ready for the enterprise yet, eventually the enterprise will push using Android and is currently working on an enterprise version to be released in 2010 that will include “the ability to centrally manage and update company smartphones and devices.”
The suite, which was downloaded over 100,000 times during its beta trial and takes advantage of Java Virtual Machine (JVM) technology, is available for download on the company’s site for $4.99 a year.
