NetQin And Commtouch Enter Agreement for Delivery Of Mobile Security And Advanced URL Filtering Solutions

Companies to integrate Commtouch's GlobalView URL Filtering into NetQin Mobile Security

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NetQin Mobile Inc. (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of consumer-centric mobile security and productivity applications, today announced an agreement with Commtouch' (NASDAQ: CTCH) to integrate Commtouch's GlobalView(TM) URL Filtering into NetQin Mobile Security.

Commtouch's GlobalView URL Filtering is a cloud-based URL filtering solution that provides insight into security threats, identifying harmful sites before users are exposed to them. Its unique technology continuously monitors and analyzes Web traffic to categorize URLs in realtime. GlobalView URL Filtering will now be included as part of NetQin Mobile Security, which protects smartphones against mobile security and privacy threats, including malware, spyware, viruses, and hackers, while keeping devices running at optimal speed.

"Every day, people use their smartphones for email, banking, playing games, and browsing the Internet. In many ways, mobile phones are mini-computers and they expose people to the same types of undesirable content and security risks they're exposed to on their PCs," said Dr. Henry Yu Lin, NetQin's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "People need the same strong, reliable security and filtering options they have on their home computers on their mobile devices. By integrating Commtouch's URL filtering solution with NetQin's mobile security technology, we're giving customers the best security and privacy protection tools to protect their mobile devices."

NetQin Mobile Security users can more safely browse the Web on their phones, while the URL filtering solution is continuously working to detect and block malicious websites and suspicious URLs in their emails and text messages. The end result for users is effective protection against phishing attacks and other types of cybercrimes, which often result in financial losses and identity theft.

"With mobile devices overtaking computers for day-to-day activities like browsing the Web, the need for strong threat protection is substantial and growing," said Ofer Tal, vice president of international sales and business development at Commtouch. "We are pleased to take a leadership position in protecting mobile users in this collaboration with NetQin, one of the fastest growing and leading mobile smartphone security providers."
