ESET Mobile Antivirus Integrates Popular NOD32 Scanning Technology with New SMS Protection for Mobile Devices

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 18, 2008: ADAOX Middle East, the regional business development centre of ESET NOD32 Antivirus, today announced the availability of ESET’s Mobile Antivirus, a new security solution for mobile devices for the Middle East region. The software, which was released as a beta version a few months ago, delivers unprecedented speed and accuracy in detecting the most sophisticated mobile malware attacks, while delivering the same highly-effective, non-intrusive experience on handsets as on PC platforms. ESET Mobile Antivirus will immediately address mobile malware and SMS-borne threats on Windows Mobile devices, delivering the same highly-effective, non-intrusive experience on handsets as on PC platforms.

“More and more users are requiring mobile devices to send sensitive e-mail and SMS messages. With the number of Smartphone users increasing every day, the potential for attacks is also increasing. ESET invested a lot in R&D to build an optimal solution for mobile users – an intelligent mobile solution that offers the same exceptional level of protection that customers have come to expect from ESET. The response from Windows Mobile users to the beta version of ESET Mobile Antivirus was very encouraging. We are excited to formally launch another winning product from ESET,” says Mr. Neo Neophytou, Managing Director at ADAOX Middle East.

As smartphones rapidly gain market share, industry analysts predict they will become popular targets for Internet-borne attacks. The increasing quantity of personal and company data stored on these devices, including data unknowingly stored in browser caches, make mobile devices especially vulnerable to malware and other malicious exploits.

By utilizing ESET’s NOD32 scanning technology, this lightweight anti-malware software has been optimized to proactively protect mobile devices from the latest malicious attacks. The addition of spam protection for SMS messaging adds another layer of security.

“After experiencing performance issues with a mobile antivirus solution offered by a large security vendor, I downloaded ESET Mobile AV when it became available in beta form because I had used ESET NOD32 for years and been extremely impressed with the accuracy and speed of the desktop solution,” said Walter Goddard a service manager at Superwinch Inc. “Aside from the peace of mind ESET provides by proactively protecting me from malicious attacks, the greatest benefit is that it has virtually no impact on my phone’s performance.”

One of the biggest challenges to providing mobile security for smaller platforms like smartphones is their inherently limited memory, processing, battery and bandwidth capabilities. With its light footprint, efficient use of processing power, ability to scan removable memory devices and compact update files, ESET Mobile Antivirus effectively delivers protection against attack, within the constraints of mobile devices.

ESET Mobile Antivirus features and benefits include:
• SMS Spam Control – Sends unwanted text messages to the spam folder.
• Heuristic Threat Detection – Provides real-time protection against existing and future threats.
• On-demand Scanning – Allows scanning and cleaning of integrated and removable memory media.
• Advanced On-Access Scanning – Scans all created/used files – including email attachments - at access time.
• Activity Log – Statistics about accomplished scanning tasks are stored in a user-friendly format.
• Variable In-depth Scanning of Cab Files – Uncovers malware even if embedded in multiple levels of compressed cabinet files.
• Automatic/On-demand Updates – Users can download signature updates on-demand or schedule updates on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
• Compact Updates – Update files are typically a fraction of the size of signature-dependent solutions.
• Intuitive User Interface – Easy-to-set dialogs and an intuitive menu enhance the user experience.

“As more consumers and businesses use smartphones to support their personal and work lives, they will require effective and non-intrusive protection against mobile malware,” said Anton Zajac, CEO of ESET, LLC. “Every day, more and more users are sending and receiving e-mails and SMS messages on their mobile devices. As the amount of handsets and traffic grows, so will mobile users’ need for the same level of effective and efficient threat protection millions of people around the world have come to expect from ESET.”
Availability
ESET Mobile Antivirus is available immediately with support for Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pockets PCs Phone Edition; Windows Mobile 5.0; Windows Mobile 6 Classic, Professional and Standard; and Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1.
