I’ve written a few reviews about mobile security solutions for Android users and one of the ones that impressed me the most was the offering from TrustGo (read that review here).
Now, the TrustGo Mobile Security app for Android has been ranked number one, with perfect scores, in the independent January 2013 test conducted by AV-Test.
“TrustGo Mobile Inc. (TrustGo), a leading mobile security company, today announced that its TrustGo Antivirus and Mobile Security product for Android mobile devices has received certification from AV-TEST.org and earned top marks in their annual Android Security Testing of 22 anti-malware and device protection products.
TrustGo was rated highest at 99.65% in malware detection. It was the only product to receive a perfect score, obtaining 6 (out of 6) for protection and 6 (out of 6) for usability. Additionally, TrustGo was awarded one bonus point by including important security features like anti-theft, safe browsing and backup.
In this rigorous test, each product was presented with a total of 952 malware apps discovered within four weeks of the test date. Each was also judged on performance and usability criteria including impact on battery life, effects on the speed of the device, amount of traffic generated by the app and whether the app generated false warnings. TrustGo received top marks in these measures as well.
“We are proud that AV-TEST Labs, the benchmark for the security industry, has once again recognized TrustGo’s technology leadership in mobile security,” says Xuyang Li, President and CEO of TrustGo. “These accolades reflect our mission to provide the most comprehensive security and privacy protections across the entire mobile ecosystem.”
“The team at AV-TEST was extremely impressed by TrustGo Antivirus and Mobile Security,” says Andreas Marx, President of AV-TEST.org. “We take great pride in conducting the industry’s most rigorous and comprehensive tests on security products for consumers and corporations and are pleased to recognize companies that meet our high standards of performance.”
Along with products that protect mobile consumers, TrustGo also offers a range of app security services to developers and leading app marketplaces, including the TrustGo AppStore Protector that certifies apps for marketplaces, and TrustGo Developer Services that protect app developers’ brands by finding and removing unauthorized and modified clones of legitimate apps on over 185 global app marketplaces.”
