Mobile Security Innovator to Offer Virus Protection for 50M AirDroid Users, Pushing Its Total Protected Users to 250M

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - February 18, 2016) - Trustlook, a leading global mobile security provider, today announced a partnership with mobile app company Tongbu Networks. The Trustlook Mobile Security engine will be embedded within Tongbu Networks' AirDroid app, giving AirDroid users the opportunity to benefit from Trustlook's easy-to-use protection from malware and privacy threats.

"We're excited to partner with Trustlook to bring an additional level of security to AirDroid users," said Jun Xiong, CEO and founder of Tongbu Networks. "Trustlook is the leader in mobile security, and they are uniquely equipped to address the mobile security concerns of our users."

AirDroid is one of the top apps in the Tools category. The app enables users to access and manage their Android phone or tablet from a computer or on the Web, wirelessly and for free. It lets users transfer files, sideload apps, and even send text messages without picking up their phone.

"This is a momentous deal for Trustlook," said Allan Zhang, founder and CEO of Trustlook. "Our partnership with AirDroid, the undisputed leader in their category, is a huge step in our commitment to serving the Enterprise."

The demand for mobile threat protection has never been stronger. In the third quarter of 2015 alone, 574,706 different malware strains were found, which is a 50 percent increase compared to the same period the prior year, according to global security firm G Data. The numbers are expected to grow significantly in 2016.

The AirDroid deal emphasizes Trustlook's intention of making its award-winning security solutions available to Enterprises. The company now protects more than 250M users globally, and will announce OEM offerings and additional partnerships with top applications within the next few months.
