With NQ Mobile's proprietary cloud-based security and privacy solutions, consumers and enterprises will have access to even more on-device protection from mobile threats.

  • Cloud-Based Mobile Anti-virus: Being used by over 280 million customers world-wide, NQ Mobile's cloud-based anti-virus platform brings real-time defense against malicious software delivered through apps, websites, SMS and more.
  • Privacy Protection:  Protects the users' private information, ensuring the users' social networking, email and financial accounts are not hacked and personal phone calls are not recorded.
  • Anti-Theft/Anti-Loss: Allows users to remotely locate, lock, sound an alarm and erase information from a lost or stolen mobile device.

"Consumers around the world are becoming more and more aware of mobile threats, but there are many smartphone owners who are not actively taking steps to protect their devices," said Gavin Kim, Chief Commercial Officer at NQ Mobile.  "We bring innovative security solutions directly onto Qualcomm Reference Design devices that utilize the Snapdragon MSM8x25 processors.  These are innovations that our industry needs and our customers are asking for."

The Qualcomm Reference Design program by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. offers industry-leading technical innovation, differentiated hardware and software, easy customization options that save engineering costs and speed time to market, access to an ecosystem of software and hardware providers who support the Qualcomm Reference Design program, and testing and acceptance readiness for regional and leading operator requirements.
