Kaspersky Tablet Security Continues to ensure a Secure Environment

 The past two years have seriously changed the status quo in the mobile security market. The growing popularity of Android, combined with the system’s lack of built-in protection, has led to an explosive growth in the amount of malware designed for the platform. According to Kaspersky Lab data, the number of threats targeting Android grew200-fold in 2011, while more threats were discovered in the first quarter of 2012 than in all of 2011. In effect, malware for Android has displaced all other mobile threats: about99% of all mobile malware targets this platform. This is hardly surprising, since tablets are not that different from traditional laptops or desktops: they can also be used to conduct online transactions, read emails and do social networking. All these activities involve entering personal data, such as logins and passwords, which are of particular interest to cybercriminals. Unfortunately, few people realize the need to protect the data stored on tablets. This makes life easier for cybercriminals, which only serves to spur on their activity.

Another problem often faced by all tablet owners is device loss or theft.

AccordingtoastudyconductedbyO+KResearchin2012, almost 1 out of every 10 tablet owners has been parted from their devices due to loss or theft.  The same research shows 1 out of every 6 people owns a tablet, meaning a massive number of users would benefit from the ability to search for a lost or stolen device and prevent sensitive data stored on the device from falling into the wrong hands. All of these needs are successfully addressed by Kaspersky Tablet Security.
