Symantec Releases Free Security Software for Android


Symantec, well known for its extensive lineup of security products on both the Windows and Mac platforms, today released Norton Mobile Security Lite, a freeware security product aimed at devices running Google's Android OS.

Like desktop antivirus software, Mobile Security Lite scans downloaded files (and, optionally, files on inserted SD cards) and compares them against an automatically updated definitions database in order to detect malware. It also helps to secure your data by offering you the ability to lock your phone remotely. Symantec claims that the product does all of this without slowing your device down or draining its battery, though your mileage may vary.
