Ahead of Mobile World Congress, ESET Mobile Security Scores Major Endorsement in Germany

Created: 2016-02-05 00:00:00

ESET®, the pioneer of proactive protection, has placed first with its ESET Mobile Security for Android app in an independent test by leading German consumer organization Stiftung Warentest. It outplaced its competitors by winning “good” mark with the highest score out of all 13 tested products. Publication of the test results came just ahead of the Mobile World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona later this month.

Berlin-based Stiftung Warentest carries out hundreds of independent comparative product tests, including assessment of IT security products. “ESET offers the best use in the test … protects reliably … and burdens smartphones the least,” says on various points in extensive analysis Stiftung Warentest magazine, highlighting ESET Mobile Security’s ease of use, reliability and lightweight system footprint.

ESET will be showcasing the latest version of ESET Mobile Security at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, starting February 22. Along with ESET Mobile Security, another highlight will be ESET’s brand-new child protection app for Android – ESET Parental Control. ESET will be located in Hall 5, Booth B05.

 

“We are excited to hear these results, especially in Germany. ESET is a Europe-based company, actually the largest from the EU, and Germany is a focus for our activities. Satisfied customers in Germany, around Europe and indeed around the world are our top priority. With this test result, there is yet more proof of the outstanding quality of our ESET Mobile Security for Android app,” says Miroslav Mikus, Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa at ESET.

 

Stiftung Warentest was not the only consumer organization which sees ESET Mobile Security as the best security app on Android. Late last year it won the test of Austrian magazine Konsument, local consumer testing equivalent.

More good news for ESET Mobile Security came recently from the PC Security Labs (PCSL) Android Malware Detection Test in December. ESET’s app achieved the highest score for malware detection, as well recording no false positive alerts. PC Security Labs is a China-based IT consulting institute.
