SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The first mobile security cloud model was introduced by Dr. Lin Yu, CEO of NetQin Mobile Inc., today at the Wireless Security Symposium held in Seoul, South Korea. The mobile security cloud model is composed of three parts, (1) a cloud security platform -- knowledge repositories including mobile viruses repositories, spam message repositories, phishing site repositories, (2) high-efficient engines in the "mobile terminal" (e.g., virus scanning engine, intelligent spam-identification engine) etc, as well as (3) a cloud security center that processes all the analysis work at the backend and then distributes to the cloud security client, e.g. mobile terminals. The mobile security cloud model gives service providers a scalable ability to solve new emerging mobile security issues, according to Dr. Lin Yu.

Mobile security cloud refers to collecting large amounts of virus samples, malware, malicious websites, etc. to form a mobile security knowledge repository, and handling security threats through an efficient virus scanning engine and a spam message filtering engine based on the mobile security knowledge repository. With the contribution of millions of users around the globe, NetQin's Mobile Security Center has the most comprehensive Mobile Security Policy Database. In NetQin's mobile security cloud model, the user becomes a part of mobile security cloud -- each time the users access NetQin's services, they can contribute new security knowledge to NetQin's mobile security cloud by reporting virus samples, malicious URLs and rating other applications. Thus, the more users, the more powerful the mobile security cloud platform is.

"As mobile phones become the information centre connecting people with the world, mobile security is becoming a fundamental service for mobile life. Users will require more timely and proactive protection to their mobile devices. The user-centered design of NetQin's mobile security cloud platform allows NetQin to collect the large quantity of mobile virus samples and spam message samples, process them via the cloud-server and then update to the latest policy database for the users, thus providing a timely and efficient security protection for the users," says Dr. Lin Yu.
