Kaspersky Lab has today launched Kaspersky Internet Security – Multi-Device, a new security product that aims to provide protection to the commonly-used devices such as tablets and smartphones. Kaspersky says the new product gives users a way to secure their Internet activity across multiple computers and mobile devices, all through a single product.

Users can install the device-specific technologies on any combination of devices. They can visit the Kaspersky Lab online store for licensing information specific to their region.

“Mobile devices have become the primary browsing tool for millions of people around the world and the Android operating system is by far the platform most targeted by cybercriminals. This should come as no surprise, since Android smartphones account for 68 percent of the global smartphone market. In fact, approximately 99 percent of all mobile malware detected by Kaspersky Lab is designed for Android devices, and the number of new mobile malware detected in 2012 – more than 35,000 unique pieces - was six times larger than what was detected in 2011,” says the company in a release.

“This pace of malware production is actually increasing, as Kaspersky Lab has detected more than 48,000 unique pieces of Android malware in the first half of 2013. This huge increase shows a clear need for premium protection while using any mobile device online. Kaspersky Lab’s latest products, built by security experts who are capable of staying ahead of this flood of malware, are up to the challenge.”

Key Android Security Features

  • Real-time protection against mobile malware, including automatic scanning of downloaded programs to prevent the installation of rogue applications masquerading as legitimate ones;
  • Web browsing protection to ensure users don’t click on malicious websites or phishing links designed to steal personal information;
  • Integration with the Kaspersky Security Network, a global network of real-time threat information that allows Kaspersky Lab to protect users from emerging threats within minutes;
  • Anti-theft features, managed through the Kaspersky Protection Center, which allow users to locate missing devices using GPS and cellular signals. Users can also remotely lock devices and wipe data, and activate the device’s camera to automatically take pictures of whoever currently possesses it;
  • Call and text-message filtering to block spam and unwanted phone calls.

Mac Protection

Kaspersky says, “as the global market share of Mac computers grows, cybercriminals have begun targeting this platform, as well. In addition to the small but growing malware concern, both Mac and PC users are equally susceptible to phishing scams using forged websites designed to steal personal information.”

Kaspersky Lab has also announced plans to start a phased global rollout of the Kaspersky Protection Center, a new Web portal to easily view and maintain the security of all protected devices.

Kaspersky says its protection center can be used to activate a variety of anti-theft technologies to recover lost or stolen mobile devices. It will also include free security tools, such as Kaspersky Password Manager to synchronize user login information across all devices, and Kaspersky Social Protect for advanced protection from malware on Facebook. Additional consumer security tools will also be added to the Kaspersky Protection Center in the future.

“The average user shouldn’t be forced to spend hours researching, purchasing, and installing multiple security products on each of their devices, and with Kaspersky Internet Security – Multi-Device, we’ve made the path to protecting all of a user’s computers and mobile devices straightforward and easy. Our customers can purchase one product, install a single license on all their computers and mobile devices, and move on with their day confident that they’ve made the smart decision,” says Alexander Erofeev, Chief Marketing Officer, Kaspersky Lab.
