You can now protect your Android™ tablet with Norton. And for good reason: according to a recent Juniper Networks study, the Android™ operating system saw a 472% rise in malware samples since July 2011. This increase in malware affects both smart phones and tablets running the wildly popular Android™ operating system.
Norton Tablet Security 2012 can protect you efficiently in muliple ways, thanks to several convenient Web-based services and strong threat detection abilities. There are two core sets of services:
Tablet protection in case of loss or theft
- Norton Tablet Security 2012 allows you to see where your device is at all times via any Web browser.
- You can lock your tablet remotely so your most precious information cannot be viewed should it fall into the wrong hands. Again, this can be done with any Web browser.
- You can have Norton Tablet Security 2012 display a personalized message on your tablet, so that in case of loss you can get in touch with whomever found it, then attempt to retrieve it.
- Norton Tablet Security 2012 can take snapshots of anyone in front of your tablet, using the front-facing camera (if available). These pictures are then uploaded to the Norton Anti-Theft website to help you identify who has your device.
Tablet threat detection and removal
Similarly as Norton Mobile Security 2012, which can protect both tablets and smart phones running Android™ 2.2 or later, Norton Tablet Security 2012 is very quick to download and install. It is easy on system resources and will never slow down your tablet while you work, browse the Web, watch videos and more.
- Norton Tablet Security 2012 detects and removes threats that hackers could use to steal your data or simply take control of your device.
- It scans all "apps" you download, looking for potential threats, and takes appropriate actions to get rid of them if any are found. Subsequent updates to these "apps" are also checked.
- Norton Tablet Security 2012 also guards your identity and sensitive information by detecting phishing websites and prevents you from revealing such information on these sites; your passwords, credit card numbers, social security number and other important data is safe.
- Thanks to Norton Community Watch your tablet has protection that is as up-to-date as it gets, enabling Norton Tablet Security 2012 to block or remove the very latest threats.
