Bitdefender Launches Antivirus Free for Android

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA — (Marketwired) — 04/08/13 — Bitdefender, the award-winning creator, has launched Antivirus Free for Android to combat the rising threat posed by unprecedented growth in malware targeting Android devices.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Android hit the market on April 8, offering smartphone owners a free, fast and powerful antivirus solution that taps the latest in-the-cloud scanning technology and prevents battery strain.

“We-ve seen an uncontrolled explosion in Android malware in the last year, so we-ve created a solution to counter that trend,” said Bitdefender Chief Security Researcher Catalin Cosoi. “We would like to see it as widely employed as possible, so we made it easy to use, light on the battery and lethal to Android malware.”

Android malware increased by 27 percent in the last six months alone, according to Bitdefender research, as malware creators intensified efforts to steal users- private data. The more common forms of Android malware can ramp up a user-s phone bill by secretly dialing premium rate numbers, steal passwords, spy on corporate emails, and monitor virtually every activity on the device.
