    Sophos security app gets better

    SOPHOS has introduced the latest version of its free Android security app, the Sophos Mobile Security 3.0, a full-featured mobile security and anti-virus application.

    The latest version boasts new and improved features, such as application protection with password, faster scanning and Web protection to block access to malicious or phishing websites.

    "If Android malware risks weren't enough, Android device loss and theft are an enormous issue, especially considering that more than 100 cellphones are lost or stolen every minute just in the US alone," said Mr Thomas Lippert, Sophos senior product manager of mobile.

    "Mobile malware leads to data loss and unexpected cost issues, while actual device loss and theft lead to potentially much worse," he added.

    "Either way, it's imperative for users to ensure their devices are protected. And we're providing this protection, for free."

    Sophos Mobile Security is offered free on Google Play.
