Trustlook has released a new feature in its Trustlook Mobile Security app that proactively notifies users of any new malware on their device. Instead of a user needing to re-scan their device in order to find malware, Trustlook will send a message to users if it discovers malware that was previously unknown.
- Jack installs a new app
- The Trustlook Mobile Security protection is triggered, and the app is uploaded to Trustlook’s cloud. But in some small instances Trustlook’s system has no prior knowledge of the app, so we consider it benign.
- A few days later, Trustlook’s Core Security system detects this new app as a malware
- Trustlook Operations launches “Instant Protection” to notify Jack of this malware and to uninstall the app.
In a perfect world, mobile devices would be 100% protected from security risks because security vendors would be aware of every malicious application that exists. However, that is not reality. It’s not possible to have full, 100% coverage. So to mitigate this security risks, Trustlook now offers Instant Protection.
