The number of Trojans and malware aimed at the Android mobile platform is growing every day. The only way to be sure that your device is protected is to install some sort of security software on the device. Kaspersky has announced that its Mobile Security 9 platform is now available for the Android platform.

The Android offering lacks a few of the features that the Windows Mobile and Symbian versions offer like encryption and parental controls, but it keeps most of the other features. The Android version supports anti-theft features to track the device down and remotely wipe the phone.

The software offers antivirus protection, firewall, and privacy protection on Android as well. Mobile filtering is featured to allow the user to block spam text messages and unwanted phone calls on all platforms. The software will protect from the recently reported Android Trojan in the wild and more. The software is subscription based and costs $29.95 per license and Android 1.6 to 2.2 is supported.

      Too bad lookout sucks a fat hog and is a worthless hunk of junk. Goodluck with that el cheapo. Being a cheap Jew never pays off

        Thanks for adding absolutely nothing of substance to the conversation. Then again, given your vocabulary, I sincerely doubt you could if you wanted to.

    Do we know how often do we have to renew our subscription of $29.95? It’s quite a lot of money so I would expect at least yearly if not more.
    Even then it’s a hefty sum for a software program, I do think Kaspersky might be the leading company security software though, so maybe it is worth it.

    Great aap. I’m using it for two weeks (on my Galaxy Tab), and I find it very fast, and useful (black- & whitelists are also awesome!).
