Bitdefender for Android scores maximum points for protection and usability
Sydney, AUSTRALIA, August 12, 2013 – Bitdefender Mobile Security, the cutting-edge Android security app by the leading internet security provider, achieved perfect scores across the board for a second time straight in testing by independent security analysis firm AV-TEST.
Bitdefender, the creator of innovative global antivirus solutions, scored 6 out of 6 in Protection, 6 out of 6 for Usability and AV-TEST approval for extra security features such as anti-theft and remote wipe in July/August testing, repeating its perfect performance of the May/June trials.
The elite Android security solution caught 100 percent of the malware samples thrown at it throughout the month of testing and gave of zero false warnings, according to AV-TEST results. Testing also showed the app doesn’t impact battery life, does not slow the device during normal use and doesn’t generate excessive traffic.
“Bitdefender is proving as reliable in the mobile arena as it is in its other endeavors,” AV-TEST CEO Andreas Marx said, noting Bitdefender’s top scores in testing on Windows 8 and Windows 7 this year. “A perfect score on protection, maximum ease of use and the array of other features is exactly what mobile security software creators aspire too. Bitdefender has achieved it.”
The results for Bitdefender Mobile Security beat 28 of the 29 other companies tested. Only Kaspersky Mobile Security, which lost to Bitdefender’s perfect score in May/June testing, managed a tie in July tests.
“Mobile security is becoming increasingly important with the proliferation of both mobile devices and the malware that targets them for data theft, SMS scams and other costly fraud,” said Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist Catalin Cosoi. “While the need for mobile security is relatively new, Bitdefender is not. The latest AV-TEST results prove that we can take a decade of experience and the industry-leading quality of our traditional software lines and translate that to the mobile arena.”
