Cedar Rapids, Iowa (January 3, 2013) – SecurityCoverage, Inc. today announced that its SecureIT, Password Genie, and FileHopper mobile apps have been selected for inclusion in the Competitive Carriers Association’s (CCA) “Carrier Approved” Android App Store. SecurityCoverage’s apps provide antivirus protection, anti-theft features, digital identity and password management, and cloud-based file sharing that CCA members’ customers need to protect and maximize their Android smartphone and tablet experience.
The CCA “Carrier Approved” Android App Store is a branded mobile application store delivered through its US-based mobile carriers to individual smart-phone owners. The App Store is focused on delivering a quality, not quantity approach towards mobile applications. Consumers get peace-of-mind knowing the apps on their devices are safe and certified, while carriers open up a new opportunity for revenue as well as building brand recognition and customer loyalty.
With mobile malware up more than 2000% in the past year consumers need to protect their devices from digital attacks. SecurityCoverage’s apps block malware, mitigate the damage from a lost or stolen device, and maintain access to important documents in the event a device is fatally damaged or unrecoverable.
“Our apps are a perfect fit for CCA’s App Store. With industry forecasts calling for even more mobile attacks in 2013, we expect security to be a real differentiator,” said Robert O’Dell, President and CEO of SecurityCoverage, Inc. “CCA members can now provide a robust security, data protection, and file sharing offering for their customers and their mobile devices. We’re pleased to be selected, and see this as a strong validation of our ongoing mobile strategy. CCA is a well-known and respected organization and we’re pleased to work with them and their members.”
Bradley Blanken, VicePresident, Industry Development at CCA, said, “SecurityCoverage’s apps were an obvious fit for CCA’s Carrier Approved Android App Store. Not only do these applications protect our members’ customers, but they keep their devices up and running which leads to higher customer satisfaction and lower support costs.”
Look for CCA “Carrier Approved” Android App Stores to launch in January of 2013 on a number of cellular providers across the country.
