Kaspersky Lab, a leading manufacturer of secure content and threat management solutions, announces the release of Kaspersky Mobile Security 9, an updated version of the product designed to provide smartphone users with the latest in mobile security. The new version supports the Android and BlackBerry platforms alongside Symbian and Windows Mobile.

Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 has been expertly designed to protect your smartphone from malware and spam, block unwanted calls, hide chosen contacts and files from prying eyes, locate your device if it goes missing and monitor your children’s mobile activities.

With unique privacy protection technologies, contacts can be hidden automatically after a preset idle period or remotely by sending a predefined SMS. You can also filter out unwanted calls and SMSs by creating a white list and a black list of contacts.

Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 will also help you keep your data confidential should your smartphone be lost or stolen. The solution allows you to wipe confidential files or block them remotely by sending a special SMS; locate your lost device with the help of the GPS Find tool; or block your phone and be notified of its new number if the SIM card is replaced.

Mobile users running Symbian or Windows Mobile operating systems can password protect and encrypt their files with a strong encryption algorithm. “These days, smartphones are an attractive target for cybercriminals due to the increasing amounts of valuable data stored on them,” said Sergey Nevstruyev, Vice President of Mobile Solutions at Kaspersky Lab. “Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 is more than just an antivirus program for your mobile phone – it’s a comprehensive mobile security suite. No matter what type of malware attacks your phone, or whether it is lost, stolen or used by others without your consent, Kaspersky Lab’s solution has got it covered, so your valuable information remains intact and your privacy guarded.”
