Lookout unveils threat protection for app stores

22 JUL 2011

Lookout Mobile Security announced its Mobile Threat Network, which includes “an API which can extend the protection available in the Network to any app store or download site.” Verizon Wireless will be the first company to use this, providing its V Cast Apps customers with increased protection against threats to apps downloaded from the storefront. The company said that in real-time, the Mobile Threat Network scans and analyzes apps around the world to identify suspicious apps and quickly detect anomalies that could indicate malware in a bad application.
