ESET Mobile Security Contains the Most Modern Security Components for Smartphones Says AV-Comparatives

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 independent testing authority AV-Comparatives.

ESET Mobile Security for Android has scored high marks in all major categories, including both low battery usage and malware detection capabilities while also earning recognition as a top solution 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 also recognized ESET for flawless installation of the product and, “a variety of setting options for Antivirus protection compared to other products.”

Most importantly, AV-Comparatives 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,” concluded AV-Comparatives in the report.

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

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.
