According to Amit Nath, Trend Micro’s Country Manager India and SAARC, Trend Micro believes, “Mobile users need to be protected against malicious applications. To help protect as many people as possible and stifle criminal attempts to steal personal and financial information we are offering our anti-malware scanner for free.”
Remotely finding a lost device is also made possible through a secure web-based portal on a Google Map. Even if the device profile is changed to silent an alarm goes off. Users can also use the portal to either block the phone in case of theft or loss or even delete all content stored on the device. Removing the SIM card automatically locks the phone. The portal’s UI is quite user-friendly, which further adds value to the service.
We tend to store a lot of information on our mobile phones these days. Besides sensitive data like bank account details or credit card information, mobile phones also provide access to email accounts, social networking profiles, etc, which are potentially dangerous. Keeping this scenario in mind Trend Micro’s mobile security solution takes on even greater importance. “We are confident in our ability to provide a range of solutions that enable people to live out their digital lives in a safe and secure fashion’, said Amit Nath, summing up Trend Micro’s objective.
