Smartphones, packed with an impressive array of features, these ubiquitous devices have become integral parts of almost every aspect of our daily lives. 


As we scroll through their inconspicuous screens, we often seem to forget how much of our information is stored on these devices. From photos of friends and family to personal and business emails to apps that offer access to our bank accounts, social networks, etc. We can conveniently summon all of this data by a simple tap. Unfortunately, this convenience has also made these devices the choicest targets for malicious cyber-attacks. 


Offering smartphones the protection they deserve, ESET, a global pioneer in proactive protection for more than two decades, launched ESET Mobile Security, a comprehensive data protection solution for mobiles phones, in Sri Lanka recently.


Combining the robust detection of ESET’s scanning engine with advanced anti-spam and antitheft functionality, its multiple layers of security provide smartphone users with real-time protection on the go. Engineered specifically for mobile operating systems, ESET Mobile Security runs smoothly in the background while protecting all phone-stored and accessed data and communication without slowing 
it down.


“A growing number of mobile users in Sri Lanka are switching over to smartphones. While this gives them access to a world of information and services, they become exposed to the data security threats that come with it,” said Dilruk Weerasinghe, Sales Manager – ESET retail at DCS International Private Limited - the exclusive authorized distributor for 
ESET in Sri Lanka.


“Sri Lankan consumers have already witnessed the comprehensive data protection capabilities offered by ESET’s solutions on their computers and have come to appreciate the same. With the launch of ESET Mobile Security we are delighted to extend this trusted protection to their mobile devices. Armed with a rich set of features, it is geared to protect users’ data against threats from both the physical and the digital world.”


The solution brings ESET’s legendary antivirus protection to the mobile at a time when smartphones are emerging as the most popular medium to access the Internet. Armed with Anti-Phishing, it guards personal data from malicious websites. Anti-Theft pre-emptively locks the device when it senses suspicious usage, securing all sensitive information contained in it. Sharing multiple alerts, it allows users to track the location of the device on my.eset.com.SMS and Call Filter permits users to block individual callers or groups and only receive the calls and texts they want. Speaking on the cutting-edge Anti-Theft capabilities offered by ESET Mobile Security, Dilruk added, “In the event of detecting suspicious behaviour such as keying of incorrect security codes or the insertion of an unauthorized SIM card, the solution locks the device immediately. It captures photographs of the fraudulent user and sends it to ESET.com along with the phone‘s location, current IP address, SIM details and other data. The user can mark the device as missing and locate it on my.eset.com or even wipe the device’s contents.”
