Trend Micro launches Titanium Tablet Security for Android

Free malware app scanner also available on its own

Trend Micro has unveiled Titanium Tablet Security for Android, security software designed for both smartphones and tablet PCs that run Google's Android OS.

The software features an anti-malware scanner app designed to indentify and remove malicious apps that steal personal information. The App Scanner can also be downloaded on its own from the Android Market for free.

Titanium Tablet Security for Android also benefits from a remote locate, lock and wipe function that allows users to locate their lost device on a Google Map and even remotely lock it or wipe their personal information from Trend Micro's online portal. There's also a function that blocks online threats such as banking scams and access to inappropriate content along with unwanted calls and text messages.

According to Trend Micro's researchers, new threats targeting devices running Google Android have increased by 800 percent since February 2011.

"With the sheer amount of personal information now being stored and sent via personal mobile devices, it's imperative that everyone protects themselves against malicious applications, protecting personal and financial information," said Karen Hicks, consumer product marketing manager, EMEA, at Trend Micro.

"For many, their Android device is an extension of their computer so when these devices are lost or misplaced, it's more important that they can be recovered, or at least ensure that the sensitive data is deleted."

Trend Micro Titanium Tablet Security is available through high-street stores and the Android Market and is priced at £14.99 for a one year subscription.
