MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb, 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- 3LM, a provider of enterprise-grade security, management and remote access for mobile devices, and NQ Mobile, the international brand of NetQin Mobile In. (NYSE: NQ), a leading provider of consumer-centric mobile security and productivity applications, are announcing today an alliance to offer a combined solution for enterprises to more securely deploy Android mobile devices across their distributed workforce. The goal is to deliver the first complete security solution for mobile devices and applications running on Google's Android operating system by providing enterprise IT full control over its fleet of Android device deployments with real-time threat monitoring and automatic removal of any malware or virus on a single platform.
Android has emerged as the smartphone and application marketshare leader in the U.S., representing 47.3 percent of total mobile devices as of December 2011, according to ComScore, and 44 percent of all mobile application downloads, according to ABI Research. Responding to the increase of Android in enterprise and IT demand for advanced Android security and management, 3LM is working to integrate its first-to-market embedded Mobile Device Management (MDM) with NQ Mobile's anti-virus/anti-malware protection technology for a complete Android mobile device and application security solution.
"Android mobile devices are catalyzing the BYOD phenomenon, and 3LM is leveraging its operating system-level security and management solution to ensure that Android devices sold by our handset partners are fully enterprise-ready," said Tom Moss, CEO at 3LM. "Our partnership with NQ Mobile is about working together to introduce the most complete solution for Android security by not only protecting corporate data and applications, but fighting back with automated cloud-based anti-virus, malware protection and more."
"Security threats to enterprise mobility are becoming more advanced every day, which is why NQ Mobile is taking the proactive approach to delivering real-time, cloud-based scanning to protect against mobile malware and viruses," said Omar Khan, co-CEO, NQ Mobile. "We're working with 3LM to integrate two best-in-class Android security and management technologies to provide our customers and carrier partners with unmatched security for enterprise-ready Android mobile devices."
