mobile security comcastComcast takes aim at mobile security

Comcast, one of the largest communications companies in the U.S., has launched a new mobile security application for smart phones and tablets. The applications, called Constant Guard Mobile, aims to address the growing issue of mobile security  and help protect consumers from exploitation. Comcast claims that new threats are emerging in the mobile space on a nearly daily basis. Without adequate protection, a consumer’s information is prone to theft and can be used to nefarious ends.

Cybercrime is becoming a very serious threat in the US

Comcast Vice President of Strategic Services suggests that cybercrime is becoming more common throughout the mobile world. Mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, are very attractive targets for hackers because of the kind of information that is stored on them. Consumers often use their mobile devices to check their bank accounts, make purchases, and share personal information. Because mobile devices are so important to consumers throughout the U.S., Comcast is taking steps to address any mobile security concerns these people may have.

Security platform may help protect consumers

Comcast is the first Internet service company in the country to offer mobile security services for smart phones and tablets. The Constant Guard Mobile application is available for both iOS and Android platforms. The company is developing a desktop version of the security suite and intend to offer this version as a new way for PC users to protect themselves while online. Comcast believes that the platform will help keep consumers safe from hacking attempts, malware, and other forms of cybercrime.

Reliance on mobile technology breeds new concerns for security

Mobile security is becoming more of a problem as people begin to rely more heavily on their mobile devices. In the early years of mobile technology, mobile phones where very limited in the amount of information they contained. Now, however, many people pour their entire lives into their mobile devices, making them valuable targets for malicious parties that may benefit through the use of this information. Comcast is one among several companies that is working to improve the access consumers have to comprehensive mobile security solutions.
