Kaspersky Lab, one of the famous anti-virus developers in the world, now has set a new Malaysian record as it has managed to activate 1,931 signups of its mobile phone anti-virus program at an education and awareness program in Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC), simultaneously celebrating the global cybersecurity company’s 20th anniversary.
It was a huge success for both Kaspersky Lab and TAR UC, breaking the Malaysian record for having 1,931 downloads where the minimum requirement was supposed to be 1,500 downloads in 6 hours, certified by officials from Malaysian Book of Records.
At the event itself, students, faculty staff and visitors joined in to activate the antivirus program together. There were two kinds of apps downloaded, which were the Kaspersky Internet Security for Android and Kaspersky Password Managers for iOS devices.
This is also a good way to raise awareness to the public of the dangers they might face. In this era we live in, the smartphone is one of things we find hard to live without and is one of the key items in our life that we count on. Smartphones are being in demand as there is surely as rise in smartphone users nowadays, but not many have a great security solution to protect their information. This really reminds me of the issue that happened to Facebook few weeks ago (we discussed the issue here). Well, better be careful!
