BARCELONA, Spain, Mobile World Congress, February 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 - Cellebrite Offers First and Only Diagnostics Solution to Detect and Remove Malicious Applications and URLs from Mobile Devices with Webroot's Award-Winning Antimalware Solution

Cellebrite, the leading provider of retail mobile data solutions, and Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced a technology partnership. The Webroot Mobile App Reputation Service and URL Classification Service will be integrated with Cellebrite's Diagnostics solution. The combination will enable mobile operators and mobile retailers deploying Cellebrite's Diagnostics to proactively identify and remediate security threats and performance problems on their customer's mobile device by leveraging the extensive Webroot threat database, which contains millions of mobile application and website antimalware signatures.

The addition of antimalware capabilities from Webroot to Cellebrite's comprehensive mobile device diagnostics solution allows wireless retailers to increase customer smartphone satisfaction while avoiding costly repairs. The integrated solution addresses the emerging class of phone problems and threats caused by mobile malware-in addition to detecting and correcting problems resulting from a wide range of hardware faults and operating system malfunctions.  

With the delivery of the integrated Webroot solution, Cellebrite becomes the first and only multi-channel phone diagnostics solution provider to offer antimalware detection and removal to mobile carriers and retailers, and the first such vendor to provide this market with cloud-based mobile threat protection from Webroot. Webroot security intelligence services have analyzed more than 7.8 million mobile applications and categorized more than 10 billion web URLs with sophisticated website reputation scoring to identify and block mobile threats and malicious websites on iOS and Android devices.  

The combined offering will enable mobile retailers to immediately address customer problems related to mobile malware - in addition to problems emanating from other sources - at the point of sale by running Cellebrite Diagnostics on a device.  At the customer's direction, the suspicious applications, websites or malware can then be immediately removed from the device.  By identifying and removing threats, mobile retailers can limit reputational damage due to customer dissatisfaction and reduce costs due to malware-related issues, such as unnecessary returns, repairs, or network performance issues. The solution's general availability is scheduled for the second calendar quarter in 2014.

"Webroot is excited to team with Cellebrite to help mobile retailers and carriers protect their customers from quickly evolving mobile threats," said Scott Merkle, vice president of Enterprise and OEM Sales at Webroot. "By leveraging Webroot's best-in-class URL classification and mobile app reputation with its Diagnostics, Cellebrite provides a highly secure service that can grow their retailers' customer bases, maximize recurring revenue streams and enable consumers to get the most value from their mobile device investments."

"Malware detection, removal and resolution are vital components to an effective mobile diagnostics solution.  The source of consumers' complaints about smartphone problems is no longer confined to hardware and software faults, but also increasingly related to applications hurt by malware," said Amir Lehr, vice president of Cellular Products and Business Development at Cellebrite.  Lehr continued, "Combining our diagnostics with the Webroot solutions makes Cellebrite the first Diagnostics provider to deliver, at the point of sale, immediate access to best in class antimalware technology, focused on this critical application layer, from an industry leader that shares Cellebrite's commitment to research and continual improvement through innovation."
