Why Snapdragon Smart Protect?
End-users and enterprises, along with their devices and data, are under increasing attack from mobile malware. Thousands of new mobile malware apps are generated each day. And traditional, signature-based anti-malware apps alone aren't able to detect and stop all of them.
Snapdragon Smart Protect is the first line of defense against mobile attacks.
Snapdragon Smart Protect is designed to outsmart even the toughest malware attacks by detecting and classifying a broad range of spyware, adware and malicious app behavior. This behavior is analyzed through Qualcomm® Zeroth™ machine learning technology which is engineered to examine actual, real-time application behavior to quickly detect suspicious activity from even the newest or “zero-day” malware. Snapdragon Smart Protect complements existing signature-based anti-malware solutions, supporting robust security and enhanced user personal privacy to today’s mobile environment.
Snapdragon Smart Protect is made to offer optimal performance through on-device design and uniquely deep access to the hardware and software of the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 processor, supporting malware detection and critical data processing on the device, rather than in the cloud. By doing malware detection on the device, Snapdragon Smart Protect is designed to detect and classify new and transformed malware quickly and efficiently.
A secure mobile platform requires a strong foundation.
Working in conjunction with Snapdragon Smart Protect in Snapdragon processors, the Qualcomm® SecureMSM™ foundation is designed to provide security against potential attacks with additional safeguards, including firmware protection and operating system-level security. The SecureMSM foundation supports protection on the device, not in the cloud, for efficient protection against security attacks.
