China is Taking a Lead Position in Making App Downloads Safe - Wordulator : Wordulator


China’s leading app store solution provider is teaming up with one of the country’s top mobile security technology providers to tackle security issues associated with mobile apps. ASC (“App Store Connect”), the leading provider of mobile app store solutions in China, today announced its strategic partnership with Tencent Mobile Security Lab, one of the leading providers of mobile security solutions in China. App Store Connect will use Tencent’s app security testing and certification service to provide users the assurance that the mobile applications offered by ASC-powered mobile app stores have been thoroughly checked and are safe for download onto their mobile devices.

“Tencent’s MTAA will strengthen our set of content management technologies and set a higher standard of mobile content security offerings.”

The relationship with ASC, the leading mobile app store provider in China, is the first strategic partnership Tencent has entered into since unveiling its Mobile Security Lab based on its MTAA (Mobile Terminal Assurance Architecture). Through the partnership, mobile applications and contents offered on the ASC-powered mobile app stores will be tested and certified using Tencent’s cutting edge mobile security engine before distribution to consumers.

“As a technology solution provider for mobile app stores, ASC serves some of the main mobile device manufacturers and content providers. We are committed to providing the highest quality of mobile contents to consumers. Copyright and security are the key issues we are dedicated to addressing since day one of our operations.” Said Neo Zhang, GM of App Store Connect. “Tencent’s MTAA will strengthen our set of content management technologies and set a higher standard of mobile content security offerings.”

“Tencent Mobile Security Lab has built a comprehensive framework for strategic partnerships, and is open to cooperating with mobile Internet industry partners. “ Said Ken Hu, Vice President of Tencent 3G Product Department. “App Store Connect represents some world-leading mobile device manufacturers including HTC and thousands of mobile developers with their high quality applications. Tencent Mobile Security Lab is glad to work with ASC to further promote mobile security in China.”

According to the data from the China Internet Association Anti Virus Alliance, over 1,600 mobile viruses or malwares have been identified, which infected 8 million mobile devices in 2010. Among which, viruses like “Virus Media” and “Phone Skeleton” infected over 2 million and 830,000 phones respectively during the year. The rapid development of mobile app stores and app download websites makes the spread of such viruses possible.

Industry experts remarked that coordinated efforts by the entire industry chain are instrumental for improving mobile security in China. App Store Connect is setting the pace and hopes that other mobile app store providers will introduce mobile security solutions to control the spread of mobile viruses at the source. Tencent and ASC will also promote QQ Phone Manager Application to provide security solutions at the end user level to further protect the smartphone users.
