Kaspersky Lab announces that over a million copies of Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 have been downloaded from Ovi just a month after the product first appeared in Nokia's online store.
Visitors to the Ovi online store have an opportunity to try out Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 before purchasing. The solution can be found in the store's 'Recommended' section. Existing users can renew their license or update the product version directly from Ovi by simply purchasing an activation code.
"Since 2007, our company has been protecting Nokia smartphones from all types of IT threats and in that time we have achieved a leading position on the market," says Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab. "We fully support Nokia's efforts to provide its customers with high quality services and reliable protection and we are pleased to attain this new level of cooperation with the Ovi online store. I am sure the benefits of our mobile protection solution combined with Ovi's user-oriented approach will help secure even more Nokia devices."
