Quick Heal Mobile Security (QHMS) is available with a "Free Subscription" of Two months and can also be downloaded from the Swipe App Store," said an official spokesperson.
Android being an Open platform is susceptible to many external threats like viruses, hackers etc. Thus it becomes crucial to protect your Tablet PCs.
QHMS is an easy-to-use mobile security solution with numerous features that help keep your device protected from viruses.
The initiative will support Swipe Telecom's efforts in making its devices safe and secure as users are becoming wary of the potential data threat their Tablet PCs face in the current scenario; as the world converges towards mobile internet and m-commerce.
Speaking on the occasion, Shripal Gandhi, Founder & CEO, Swipe Telecom, said, "In 2013, users are expected to carry out more financial transactions through their android devices, thus increasing the risk factor of malicious attacks. However, only a fraction of 6-8% of tablets and fablets are protected by security software, despite a rise in the amount of malware targeted at mobile devices.
"With a visible upward trend in m- payments and m-commerce in India we at Swipe Telecom are sensitive to the situation and hence are offering security solutions to all our users. In the future, we hope to keep the momentum going and constantly innovate and offer value added solutions to all our users."
For these reasons, the applications deployed there must guarantee privacy and integrity of the information they handle. In addition, since some apps could themselves be malware, their functionality and activities should be limited.
"This security solution offered includes a host of features. The Anti-Theft feature helps lock your fablet and tablet, secure confidential data, and locate your device in case it gets lost or stolen. The automatic real-time virus and spyware scan comes with optional manual scan for installed applications," said the spokesperson.
The SMS and Call block features allow you to effectively control spam messages and create a Black list to keep a check over unwanted SMSs and calls. It is also an effective and smart way of preventing your Inbox from getting crowded with pop-up messages or advertisements.
Speaking on this, Abhijit Jorvekar, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Quick Heal Technologies, said, "Mobile devices are individual-centric technologies that have gradually become an indispensable and important part of our lives. Our research and development is aimed at addressing the security concerns of users considering the amount of data that a mobile device can carry.
