KDDI America Announces New Mobile Security Service for Smartphone

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/11/11 -- KDDI America, Inc., the U.S. division of KDDI CORPORATION, a Global Fortune 500 company and worldwide leader in international telecommunications services, announces today that it has released a robust mobile security application for Smartphone. The product is a comprehensive solution that will include Smartphone security, management and centralized control by the simple web application. The solution will customize the range of security protections, mobile malware, viruses, spam, and address loss and theft.

An increase in corporate awareness surrounding security threats combined with a more mature understanding of the role technology can play in combating these threats is leading to more IT investments being made in mobile security. Based on the growing sophistication of mobile devices and the level of corporate data being stored on those devices, the risks are significant when one considers theft or loss of a mobile device. End users can self-provision securely and data can be stored and visualized in a central location by the IT end user.

The service also has comprehensive mobile platform support; Google Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Nokia Symbian. KDDI America will target both its own mobile service, KDDI Mobile users and other Smartphone users. Some of the features are as follows 1) Antivirus which offers real-time protection updated automatically as well as scans files received over all network connections. 2) Anti-spam blacklist filtering -- blocks voice and SMS spam (block calls, messages or both). Automatic addition of contacts to blacklist. Automatic denial for unknown or unwanted calls, options to disable alerts for incoming messages. Other features include 3) Personal firewall with inbound and outbound Port and IP filtering automatically. Full control of alerts/logging. 4) Loss/Theft Protection -- remote lock and/or wipe, GPS Locate/Track, Device Backup/Restore and Remote Alarm/Notification. 5) Monitoring & Control -- application inventory and removal, SMS, MMS, view phone call log, address book/contacts and photos stored on device. The parental control monitoring systems along with the application's ability to work across most platforms are unique when compared to the competition namely Lookout and McAfee products.

KDDI America will provide additional discounts to KDDI Mobile users and will provide the service free of charge by end of this year. For others, the pilot promotion which is a 30 day free trial will be offered through July 2011. "It is a great opportunity for our customers and prospects to participate in a free trial and experience this level of security management, it is the most comprehensive solution being offered at this time," said Director of Marketing, Sandra de Novellis.
