Winner: FireEye Mobile Security
The need for strong security can never be understated, and the Android platform has taken more than a few knocks. Helping to prevent any further black eyes is FireEye Mobile Security, a free app that the company says was built for Android from the ground up to identify and halt threats of all kinds. With the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention ecosystem at its back, FireEye Mobile Security identifies advanced malware, compromised ad-ware and software vulnerabilities from mobile applications in real time using behavioral analysis and blocks malicious apps from execution. Immediately upon installation, the tool scans existing apps and interrupts new app installations to provide a detailed analysis and threat score. The FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention Management add-on gives IT administrators an enterprise-wide view of mobile threats on devices and their network.
