BEIJING and DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NQ Mobile (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services, and HTC, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, today announced the launch of a proprietary security check service for HTC's App Store in mainland China. The collaboration demonstrates a strong commitment to protecting mobile users against a growing number of mobile threats.
Leveraging NQ Mobile's leadership in the detection of risks including spyware, phishing and viruses, the service will ensure a safe downloading channel for end users by identifying malicious software before it can be circulated. The collaboration will bring a pre-scanning service from NQ Mobile for all applications and plug-ins prior to their inclusion in HTC's App Store. This will protect the growing number of HTC subscribers from the ever-increasing risks of mobile viruses and malware by preventing harmful downloads from being made available in HTC's App Store in the first place."Guaranteeing a safe mobile environment is a large undertaking, and we are proud that HTC is joining NQ Mobile to stop malware before it has a chance to harm consumers," commented Gavin Kim, Chief Product Officer, NQ Mobile. "We look forward to helping HTC subscribers get the most out of their mobile experience and enjoy the assurance of threat-free downloads." "With HTC's philosophy of pursuing excellence, the security service experts of NQ Mobile were the natural choice of partner for our efforts to curtail the spread of mobile malware," said Ray Yam, corporate VP and head of HTC Communication in China. "We are happy that our customers will now have the confidence that ours is a world-leading, secure mobile phone environment." NQ Mobile's cloud-based database contains one of the world's largest catalogs of mobile threat intelligence in existence, containing well over one billion risk assessed and rated URLs and 1,400,000 mobile applications. Ranked first place in West Coast Labs' "Mobile Phone Security Test 2011" this database is responsible for first detecting and resolving over 75% of all new mobile threats worldwide.
