Kaspersky Lab has recently released Kaspersky Tablet Security – a new version of its security solution for Android tablets. According to tech experts, the updated product scans the mobile system much faster than the previous version, while the new alarm tool will help users find lost tablets.
Hackers are targeting smart phones and tablet PCs
The past two years have seriously changed the status quo in the mobile security market. The growing popularity of Android, combined with the system’s lack of built-in protection, has led to an explosive growth in the amount of malware designed for the platform.
According to Kaspersky Lab’s data, the number of threats targeting Android grew 200 per cent in 2011, while more threats were discovered in the first quarter of 2012 than in all of 2011. In effect, malware for Android has displaced all other mobile threats: about 99 per cent of all mobile malware targets this platform.

Kaspersky Tablet Security provides trusted protection against malware using cutting edge technologies developed by Kaspersky Lab. It’s proactive and cloud based technologies help in detecting new and unknown threats in real time. It also offers web Protection, anti-theft protection with remote web management, and call and text filtering (blocking calls and messages from unwanted numbers).
Kaspersky Tablet Security is available on the Kaspersky Lab’s online store. It is also available in IT retail outlets and major large format retail outlets like Reliance Digital, Staples and Wal-Mart in India. Registered users of previous versions can upgrade to Kaspersky Tablet Security free of charge, but they must re-install the application.
