AV-Comparatives: “ESET Mobile Security contains the most modern security components for smartphones”

ESET, the leader in proactive protection celebrating 25 years of its technology this year, has scored an excellent review for its Android-based product in the latest Mobile Security Review by an independent testing authority AV-Comparatives. ESET Mobile Security for Android has scored high marks in all major categories,  excelling in low battery usage, placed as one of the top products in Android malware detection capablities and  being among the top solutions when it comes to detecting the most adware families.

AV-Comparatives analyzed the key functionalities of the feature-rich product, namely Antivirus, Antispam, Anti-Theft, SIM-matching, Remote Wipe and Remote Lock. The testing authority commended ESET for flawless installation of the product and “a variety of setting options for Antivirus protection compared to other products.” Most importantly, it found that “this product was one of few that made data recovery after a remote wipe completely impossible” given that ESET Mobile Security overwrites the entire memory. “ESET Mobile currently contains the most modern security components for  smartphones,“ concludes AV-Comparatives in the report.

“A dedicated team of ESET Mobile Security developers makes every effort to make the most advanced solution to protect our customers on-the-go. We are proud that an authority such as AV-Comparatives is recognizing our talent and technology,”
says ESET Product Manager for Mobile Security Miroslav Majtáz.


In the coming weeks, ESET is planning to release ESET Endpoint Security for Android – a mobile security solution for business customers with remote administration capabilities.
