PhoneGuard Unleashes Cell Phone Virus and SMS Secure Protection Powered by Award Winning NetQin Technology

Introduction of New Cellular Phone Safeguard Software Revolutionizes Personal Device Protection for Consumers

COCONUT CREEK, FL--(Marketwire - November 20, 2009) - Cellular Spy Ware Inc. d/b/a PhoneGuard is proud to announce the exclusive North American launch of a new software suite specifically designed to safeguard cellular phones/PDAs or smart phones from the ever increasing risk of data theft by hackers and cyber criminals.

"Amateur hour is over," said Anthony Sasso, founder of Cellular Spyware Inc. (CSI), and PhoneGuard. "This year marks a turning point in the quantity, complexity and level of threat mobile viruses and malware present. Your mobile phone has become an important part of your daily life. You wouldn't leave home without your mobile phone. Smart phones are becoming more and more like PC computers. We are using these multifunction devices for business communications, email, web surfing, online banking, storing photos and personal information. To say the least, these devices harbor some of our most personal and important information -- and PhoneGuard is here to protect it."

The basic concept of software protection may not be a new idea when it comes to computers. After all consumers go to extreme lengths to protect their personal PCs from hackers and viral infections. Now that cell phones have reached a comparable level of sophistication and Internet based communication, it is becoming more and more imperative that consumers take the same precautions to protect their personal hand-held devices.

"Many cell phone users aren't fully aware of the dangers of hackers and cyber thieves," said Sasso. "The extent to which a cyber criminal can penetrate your cell phone is endless. From stealing address books and intercepting email and text messages, to imbedding tracking bugs via Trojan text message that can utilize the camera on your cell phone as a live video feed, there is more at risk than people know. It is very reasonable to say that hackers can see where you are, who you're with and know what you're doing every second of the day via your cell phone."

To assure the utmost quality in protection PhoneGuard has partnered with NetQin Tech, Co., the 2009 China Frost & Sullivan Award Winner, which has developed into the largest professional mobile security service provider in the world. PhoneGuard is consumer friendly and is easily downloaded from to any cell phone, smart phone or PDA. This technology will shortly be available through a simple phone card, which may be purchased at many leading retail stores.

"The carriers are no longer able to provide adequate protection from the rising number of sophisticated attacks, nor do they want the responsibility. Much like in the PC arena, it will be up to the end consumer or business user to defend themselves against attack. This positions PhoneGuard favorably at the dawn of a new era of mandatory cell phone protection," said Sasso.

Lin Yu, CEO of NetQin, has stated: "The North America is one of the most important strategic markets for NetQin, with this strategic moving, we're now able to provide award-winning and certified mobile security protections to those smart phone users, who are more vigil to mobile threats. The international market development also validates NetQin's capability in R&D and operations to service a wide range of customers."

As with any new wave technology product the consumer needs to be educated not only of the benefits of the product itself, but also on the risks of the problem at hand. PhoneGuard is committed to educating the general cell phone user community and arming them with the proper defenses, which is why PhoneGuard offers a 14 day complimentary trail for all interested users, available via download at
