M1 launched M1 Mobile Guard, network-exclusive malware detector for mobile phones.
According to a press release, this will also be the first network-based anti-malware product in Asia.
Mobile Guard is powered by Nokia's NetGuard Endpoint Security. It will check devices accessing M1's mobile network for signs of malware infection.
Once it determines that a device has been compromised, it will send an SMS and e-mail alert to the customer's mobile number and email address.
Mobile Guard will cost $2 a month and will be accessed through M1's app.
M1 chief innovation officer Alex Tan said, "M1’s Mobile Guard is the only solution in our market to offer always-on, end-to-end network-driven malware protection – helping customers perform a device health assessment, detecting and alerting customers to a threat, and helping them eliminate any threat found."
