We’ve launched the Mobile Internet Security solution to offer consumers a better security option when using their iOS device

G DATA, the world’s longest standing antivirus provider, today announced that the company will present an expanded product portfolio for iOS mobile devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 22-25, 2016. The new, Mobile Internet Security solution, is G DATA’s first comprehensive security solution for iOS-based smartphones and tablets. The solution offers reliable protections against phishing and malicious websites, keeping data safe from online criminals, allowing users to surf the Web with peace of mind. G DATA will present at Booth 6B40, Hall 6 at Mobile World Congress 2016.

“Mobile security is an ever-growing issue today, with the rise in the use of mobile devices by adults as well as children, and also the increased use of personal devices by employees for business purposes,” said Andy Hayter, security evangelist, G DATA. “We’ve launched the Mobile Internet Security solution to offer consumers a better security option when using their iOS device that now is protected if lost or stolen, and also gives control to the parent to protect children against inappropriate device usage.”

Secure surfing for youngsters
With G DATA Mobile Internet Security, parents now have the confidence that their children are surfing the web safely. The secure browser ensures that children can only visit suitable websites that are considered educationally beneficial and age-appropriate. G DATA allows parents to create black or white lists of web sites.

Protection if the device is lost
Another feature in the G DATA application is protection if the device is lost or stolen. With just a few clicks in the G DATA Action Center, users can determine the location of their iOS device via a web browser. An acoustic signal helps track down a misplaced device – even when it has been set to silent. Additionally, if the iPhone or iPad falls into the wrong hands and the SIM card is changed, the owner receives a message.

Key features at a glance

  • Protection against phishing and malicious websites via Cloud-based detection
