BERLIN, Oct. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheetah Mobile Inc. (NYSE: CMCM), the leading developer of mission-critical mobile utility and security applications, announced today that Security Master (formerly CM Security), the company's flagship privacy protection and antivirus app, has won a Red Dot Award in the Communication Design category. The Security Master design team attended the Red Dot Gala in Berlin on October 27th to receive the award along with the other award recipients.
The Red Dot: Communication Design award recognizes outstanding design quality and aesthetics, and their implementation within the chosen medium. Winners are also judged in terms of functionality and originality. Agencies, designers and companies from 50 countries entered their works in the competition, submitting more than 8,000 projects across 18 categories. In the end, the prestigious Red Dot seal was awarded to more than 700 works. All projects were assessed individually by a jury of independent experts from around the world.
In early 2017, Security Master released a major update featuring a completely redesigned interface and upgraded features. In addition to improving its antivirus and privacy protection functions, Security Master also added SafeConnect, a feature designed to enhance mobile internet security by protecting and encrypting data transmitted across the internet, as well as intelligent diagnostics to detect problems and recommend solutions to optimize users' mobile experience.
"When we redesigned Security Master, we wanted to build an app that offers not just the best antivirus and privacy protection available, but also a sleeker, more intuitive look and feel, and this award is an independent confirmation of those efforts," said Jill Shih, Vice President of Product & User Experience at Cheetah Mobile. "Going forward, Cheetah Mobile will continue to listen to user feedback and provide effective, easy-to-use apps that combine high-quality design with industry-leading features and technology."
Security Master, which first launched as CM Security three years ago, has amassed more than 500 million users globally. The app is available as a free download from Google Play.
