Considering everything people store on their phones, it’s clear that safeguarding your smartphone is important. To put it simply, personal and financial data is at risk without mobile security. This data consists of people’s contacts, financial information, text messages, call logs, location-based data, photos, and more.
Realizing this, NQ Mobile (News - Alert), a major worldwide provider of mobile Internet services concentrating on security, privacy and productivity, announced that UK retailer Phones 4u will provide NQ Mobile Security at retail locations across the UK. The company has announced that in-store availability will start in December 2012. Phones 4u works at more than 600 retail locations in the UK.
NQ Mobile's flagship application, Mobile Security, identifies and eliminates viruses, malicious URLs, and other types of threats. Independent security lab tests, such as the West Coast Labs Comparative Test, have stated that NQ Mobile Security outperforms all competitive mobile security platforms. In research conducted by AV-TEST Institute, NQ Mobile Security was a top performer in effectiveness.
“Retailers such as Phones 4u are essential collaborators in our efforts to expand globally and protect mobile users across the world," said Omar Khan (News - Alert), co-CEO, NQ Mobile. "As smart device usage becomes ubiquitous, it is vital to educate customers about mobile security and privacy issues. Phones 4u is taking on an active role in protecting their customers' sensitive mobile information by offering NQ Mobile Security in its retail locations, offering exemplary mobile protection to consumers throughout the UK.”
Recently, the company announced that its mobile security product NQ Mobile Security would be offered in Australia's major retail outlets, such as Harvey Norman and Allphones, by Australian retail solution supplier Epay. Epay will offer users NQ's mobile safety protection service created for Android (News - Alert)-based mobile phones, and will render its retail partners with allowed secret key, store card and sales support.
