VoIP-Pal completes Anti-Virus Testing

Many VoIP customers may assume that their mobile devices are immune to viruses, but smartphones need anti-virus protection just like any other internet-based technology.

That is why VoIP-Pal
has set about protecting Google Android phones which use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology.

The company has just completed beta testing of its anti-virus program, which can detect worms and Trojan viruses, for use on Google Android versions 1.6, 2.1 and 2.2.

Dennis Chang, the president of VoIP-Pal, said: "Smartphone users may think their phone is automatically protected but sadly this is not the case.

"Just like PCs they can get viruses and VoIP capabilities make them extra vulnerable. That is why we will soon release our anti-virus program so that all your sensitive data like emails and contacts are protected."

The anti-virus program uses GPS to scan memory cards and prevent them from infecting a smartphone. It works against VoIP infiltrators who can get through to your personal data if the network is not protected,

The company plans to create further encryption techniques for phones that get lost or stolen. A remote feature will back up all smartphone data so it can be easily recovered in the event of loss or theft.

The VoIP-Call antivirus program will be sold as a a bundled package called PointsPhone Platinum. That will include air time minutes, DID and a free Android App download.
