At this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we will be showcasing our mobile security because, as our recent survey proves, the world needs it now more than ever. New levels of cybercrime sophistication are making it almost impossible to identify scams.
This morning at Mobile World Congress Barcelona, we announced the latest in protection from Avast — Avast Smart Life, a new Internet of Things (IoT) security services platform. Our strategy is to leverage our large, intelligent network to continue expanding the ways we protect you from today’s latest threats, no matter where you are in the mobile connected world we live in. Whether at home, the office or on-the-go, Avast Smart Life uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology to identify and block threats so that consumers and small businesses can keep their IoT devices, networks and sensitive data secure.
I am excited to be in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress 2018 this coming week, Feb 26-Mar 1. With over 108,000 attendees and over 2,300 companies attending, it should be a big week for sharing ideas.

Today’s children are known as “digital natives.” That is, they were born into a world where “phone” is short for “smartphone,” not “telephone,” and staring at screens is more necessity than luxury. But at what saturation point does phone usage get unhealthy? How much is too much?
It’s the review we always welcome: AV-Comparatives conducts independent tests throughout the year to take a hard look at 21 security products for Windows, putting them through rigorous testing that examines their ability to 1) protect against real-world internet threat, 2) identify thousands of recent malicious programs, 3) provide protection without slowing down the PC, and finally, 4) remove malware that has already infected a PC.
