Mobile Security Lite offers protection from theft and data loss.

Press release:
With more than six billion applications downloaded to date, it’s clear that the Android Market is experiencing explosive growth and that consumers are hooked on downloading what they want, when they want it.

To help consumers to be vigilant in safeguarding their mobile phone, Norton releases Norton Mobile Security Lite, a free security application for Android-based smartphones. Norton Mobile Security Lite seamlessly combines select anti-theft features with the most potent antimalware on the market, giving users a sense of security in the event their phone is ever lost, stolen or compromised by malware.

“In the same day, a smartphone user can stream their favorite music station, get the high score hurling birds through the air and then file their taxes online.  Having Norton installed means feeling equally confident regardless of what you do on your mobile phone,” said Tamim Taufiq, Head of Consumer Sales, Symantec MENA. “Norton Mobile Security Lite protects confidential information and offers basic mobile protection from the most trusted name in security – which means your device is safe and you’re worry-free.”

NMS Lite provides a worry free and obligation free solution to all Android users. The key features include:

  • Anti-theft – Remotely lock your lost or stolen device via SMS text and prevent strangers from seeing your private information or running up your mobile bill.
  • Anti-malware – Scans all files and app updates downloaded to the mobile device and automatically detects and removes threats without slowing you down.
  • Automatic LiveUpdate – Automatically downloads and installs security updates keeping you a step ahead of cybercriminals.

    I tried to install this application on my Android device, but was confronted with this statement: “This item cannot be installed in your device’s country.”
