Kapersky, famous for their security software, have just released an updated version of their mobile security suite which allows users to disable and wipe data on lost or stolen handsets.
Kapersky Mobile Security 9.0 also lets users locate the handset via GPS, be sent a text message if the SIM card is changed and also send an SMS to the handset, offering a reward for its safe return. Your contact’s information can also be protected by tagging them up as private.
Sergey Nevstruev, Director of Mobile Services at Kaspersky Lab, said: “With the new version of Kaspersky Mobile Security we went even further into the domain of privacy protection for mobile users, be it personal data leaks, somebody gaining temporary access to your phone, or annoying calls and texts.”
Nevstruev continued: “Those of us with smartphones use them every day to send and receive personal text messages, make calls, access the Internet, and communicate via social networks. Smartphones store lots of information about our private lives.”
