There is an increasing number of partnerships among antivirus software vendors, smartphone manufacturers, and telecom services providers, which is supporting the growth of the global antivirus software package market. Many factors, such as the increasing youth population across the world, reduction in smartphone prices, rising awareness of mobile devices, increasing technological knowledge among consumers, and the urge of consumers to keep up with the latest technology, have increased the adoption of mobile devices across the globe.

According to the report, Cybercrime includes maware, hacking and DoS attacks, computer viruses, fraud, identity theft, harassment and threats, and phishing scams. Cyber attacks by malware such as Trojans, adware, viruses, and worms have become very common, which is a major concern for businesses and individual consumers. Such malware allows hackers to gain access to confidential data on mobile devices, triggering loss of personal and financial data, exploitation, and misconduct. Malware can infect a mobile device through networks, the Internet, and use of external devices such as USBs and media cards.




Further, the report states that earlier versions of the free antivirus software had limited security protection features. The current versions of free antivirus software offer advanced features such as backup, e-mail protection, e-mail scanning, and anti-rootkit scan.
