("NetQin" or the "Company") (NYSE: NQ), a leading provider of consumer-centric mobile security and productivity applications, today announced that it has recently exceeded 100 million registered users, for its comprehensive suite of mobile Internet services, which includes anti-virus, anti-spam, privacy protection, data backup and restoration applications. NetQin has seen a rapid increase in the number of customers this year, with nearly a 100% growth since June, 2010.
