Just released this week, Total Defense Unlimited is a unique new IT security product that aims to keep an unlimited number of the computers, tablets and phones in your household safe — all for ten bucks a month. Loosely defined, that means all the personal devices of everyone under one roof, plus college kids who are away, but still under a family plan, would be covered by Total Defense's comprehensive suite of security applications: Internet Security Suite, Mobile Security, PC Tune-Up, Online Backup and Social Network Defender.
According to the independent IT security experts at AV-Test.org, the number of new Android malware threats per month has grown from virtually nothing to over 3,000 this past year. According to that same source, malware in general has increased in the decade leading up to 2011 from 200,000 new and unique threats each year to over 17 million. No, that doesn't mean the sky is falling down. But it does seem like applications and suites that include mobile device protection are about to become as popular as phone cases.
