Secucloud Endpoint Protection achieves detection rate of 99.92 per centHamburg, Germany. 21 October 2016 – People now use their smartphone to access the internet more than any other device – so it is no surprise that there has been an exponential increase in the number of mobile threats.
The independent security institute AV-TEST regularly conducts a survey of the top security solutions for Android smartphones in order to test their performance and give users some well-founded guidance on finding the right solution for their needs.
According to this research, the mobile security app from the German provider Secucloud has made it into the top solutions on its first attempt. With a detection rate of 99.92 per cent, the newcomer came straight in to the global top 5 of the 27 products tested.
It was placed above such well-known names as Symantec, Intel McAfee and GData.
This was already the second accolade from AV-TEST, as it won the AV-TEST Innovation Award for its cloud-based security concept in September.
The company’s focus on innovative, high-performance security technologies is also reflected in the tests on the Endpoint Protection mobile solution.
This extends the Germany-based firm’s solution portfolio with a standalone security app that users can implement independently of its flagship cloud solution, the Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2). Like ECS2, Endpoint Protection is also based on Secucloud’s Global Cloud Intelligence technology, which analyses all the customers’ internet traffic to check for malicious content and suspicious behaviour patterns.
In this way, the solution detects new threats in real time and ensures comprehensive protection for users.
“It’s fantastic that our solution achieved such a great result on the first attempt,” says Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud. “Especially in view of the fact that it has enormous potential to evolve. We submitted our version number 0.57 for this new test, whereas most of our competitors participated with version numbers of 14 and higher.
This excellent result is yet more proof of the impressive performance of our Global Cloud Intelligence, which we want to bring up to a detection rate of one hundred per cent.”
