Sophos Mobile Security for Android Gets Acclamation for securing 100% detection


Over a 12 month period and during six independent tests, Sophos Mobile Security for Android consistently achieved a perfect score for malware and threat detection, extending the company with the recognition of 2015 AV-TEST Best Android Security Award for Best Protection.

The independent IT security research firm, AV-TEST category of ‘Protection’ tests a product’s ability to thwart current threats, including real-time malicious code or the latest malware from unsafe websites and emails. Sophos Mobile Security, which is a free app developed by Sophos for all Android users, demonstrated a consistent detection rate of 100 percent in each of the six test rounds during 2015. In each test, the product was required to scan, detect and remove nearly 3,000 dangerous apps.

“With the Sophos app, a mobile Android system is raised to the highest-possible security level,” commented Andreas Marx, CEO for AV-TEST GmbH.

Key Features
