Guidance on how Trend Micro Mobile Security for checking viruses.

Benefits of Trend Micro Mobile Security
In case these devices are used for sensitive business transactions, then with this software you don’t need to worry about of data loss or leak in the event of misplacing or losing the mobile phone, as the data held inside is encrypted and would not make sense to anybody who tries to access it. Moreover, the application offers protection against possible virus attacks and intrusions by providing antivirus and firewall protections.
How the application helps to check against viruses?
The antimalware feature functions to block security threats, such as viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms, and text messaging spam. A possibility of hackers, intruders, and denial of service is protected against by the built-in firewall. The use of add-ons found in smartphones and other PDAs, i.e. cameras, GPS, and Wi-Fi are effectively restricted by the Lock Capability feature. Data privacy and integrity on lost or stolen devices are ensured by the Encryption functionality that alters data held in a form that requires decryption code to view, the Authentication feature that prompts for password access codes, and the Remote Wipe tool that enables the user to erase the entire content of the mobile device from a central console.
How upgrading it offers enhanced protection?
The application is available in three different versions – 3.0, 5.1 Standard, and 5.1 Advanced, and more software capabilities are made available as one upgrades the software to a higher version. Upgrading to the latest version of the application ensures that the features and tools that lack in the previous releases are accessible for extra protection.
