Trustlook Mobile Security Powers Popular New GO Security App

Mobile Security Innovator's Intelligent, Cloud-Based Technology Continues to Transform the Security Industry

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - June 07, 2016) - Trustlook, a next-generation mobile security company, entered into a partnership agreement in February 2016 with Sungy Mobile Limited ("Sungy Mobile"), a leading provider of mobile internet products and services, pursuant to which Trustlook will power Sungy Mobile's newly created GO Security app which is a mobile security app that offers users the functions of virus detection and removal, security scanning, data backup and App encryption, so as to provide comprehensive antivirus and privacy protection to users ("GO Security"). GO Security leverages Trustlook's fast and lightweight mobile security technology. It offers GO Security users the benefits of Trustlook's robust malware detection platform, as well as additional security features such as payment protection and ID Theft prevention.

"The partnership with Trustlook is working out amazingly well," said Tao Zhu, vice president of technology of Sungy Mobile. "We chose to work with Trustlook because of its innovative antivirus platform and broad set of features."

Sungy Mobile operates the GO series apps, including GO Launcher, GO Keyboard, GO Locker, GO SMS Pro and now GO Security. In total, the company has acquired over 500 million users across all of its apps.

"This is a significant development for how Trustlook works with organizations," said Allan Zhang, founder and CEO of Trustlook. "The Trustlook Mobile Security engine is already embedded within many leading apps, and now with GO Security, Trustlook's technology has been used to create an entirely new app." Trustlook has been chosen to include its security technology into all of Sungy Mobile's security series apps in the near future.

The demand for mobile threat protection has never been stronger. In the first quarter of this year there were 582,185 different malware strains discovered, which is a 51 percent increase compared to the same period last year. The number is expected to grow significantly throughout the rest of 2016.

Trustlook has developed an automated system that discovers malware in just minutes, whereas most security vendors rely on slow and manual signature-based analysis that takes weeks. Trustlook's technology significantly reduces the threat vulnerability window and protects users better than any other technology on the market.
