This is the first time that the premium edition of Kaspersky Internet Security for Android is being offered to the Philippine market.
“Building a cybersecurity culture is among our advocacies and this effort to bring Kaspersky Internet Security for Android to the Filipinos at a very affordable cost is one way we can help people get their data and devices protected,” said Mary Grace Sotayco, territory manager for the Philippines at Kaspersky. “We are so pleased to have Home Credit get on board as one of our newest partners in the country.”
In Kaspersky’s recent report, the Philippines ranked 10th in its global list of countries attacked by mobile malware last year. Kaspersky detected and blocked the mobile malware attempts against 26.8% of its users.
“We’re happy to partner with Kaspersky in ensuring the security of our customers’ data and devices,” said Franchette Chingcuangco-Cardona, chief marketing and customer experience officer for Home Credit Philippines. “Since mobile phones and tablets are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and security threats, it’s really important for us at Home Credit to provide our customers with a security solution that’s both affordable and accessible.”
Filipino mobile users would find that their Android phones and tablets will get extremely useful advanced security from Kaspersky Internet Security for Android. It acts as a virus cleaner, automatically blocking malware on such devices, scans on-demand and in real-time for viruses, spyware, ransomware, and Trojans. The software locates and locks Android devices when lost or stolen and protects personal information from thieves, wiping it off from the device. Kaspersky Internet Security for Android also keeps financial information secure when shopping or banking online and filters out dangerous links and sites when an Android device is online.
“We’re proud of this project. From a retail perspective, this is the first collaboration of its kind and we’re confident that this will help get more Filipinos to consider prioritizing their online security,” said Christopher Sy, president of iSecure Networks, the exclusive distributor of Kaspersky consumer products in the country.
