New Scientist article Security company Symantec has developed a new security system that it says could detect threats posed by hackers or other malicious actors, such as malicious trojan horse, malware or spyware.
The system, called the Threat Scanner, can scan your computer and identify threats before they reach the end user, which is crucial in a world in which security is increasingly being measured in the cloud and on mobile devices.
The company has now launched the ThreatScanner for Android app, which it describes as the “ultimate mobile threat detector”.
The system uses a combination of real-time, machine-learning algorithms and a “virtual sensor” to detect “suspicious behaviour”, including malicious software or trojan horses.
It’s also capable of “tracking and alerting you to the most important threats to privacy”.
Symantech’s ThreatScanners are already being used in consumer devices and for enterprise-class security systems.
They are meant to “track and alert you to attacks against the data you hold and the security of your network”, says the company, adding that “threat detection is one of the biggest areas of focus for SymantEC’s cybersecurity efforts”.
In the past, Symantek has been involved in the development of its own cyber-security products, including Symantel’s Cyber-Lockdown and Symantemps Anti-Virus Suite.
It also develops a number of other commercial products, and is now one of a handful of companies to have a global presence in the field of cyber security.
The threat-detection system will be available on Google Play in a few weeks, and will cost $1.99.
If you don’t own a smartphone, there are several ways to access it.
For now, the app will only be available for Android devices, and it will only work on the latest version of the latest Android OS.
The app can be downloaded from the Play Store, but Symantece will soon be releasing a version for iOS devices, as well.
The app uses a real-world scenario where the threat exists, so you can’t simply ask for an alert and expect to get one.
It will only display the threat information as you type it, but you can use the search bar to see the most recent threat alerts that Symanteleech has received.
For example, you can type “Android Trojan Horse”, and it’ll give you an alert that a trojan-laden Android app is trying to download a new version of Google’s Chrome browser.
But if you search for “Android Trojans” in the app, you’ll see that the most common threat is a new malware version of Microsoft’s Office suite.
The same applies to the Trojan-Hunter app, with threats ranging from the “new and improved” to “advanced threats”.
“While these alerts are very useful, they do not have the immediacy of the real-life threat notifications,” Symantefac says in the product description.
“This is why we are making this app even more robust, so that you can find alerts more quickly.”
As a way to protect yourself, Symanticech is also offering a free version of its ThreatScanning app for Android users, and an additional $5.99 to buy the full version.
It can be used to check the security status of any application on your device, whether it’s an application you install or an app you download.
You can also choose to have the app display an alert or notify you when there’s a threat.
You will also be able add a notification when there is a threat to your device.
The alert is also stored in the phone’s settings, but it’s encrypted with your private data.
The full app, however, is not compatible with the Android version of Symanteextra.
You have to install the full Symantebox app, and install it through the Google Play Store.
It’ll cost $5 to download the full app.
Symantec will soon begin releasing an Android app for security products, with more apps expected to follow.
The security company has also started offering a suite of tools to help you detect and prevent malicious threats, including one called Symantewinds, which can warn you when your system is being hijacked or even infected.
Symantech will soon release a mobile app to track and alert to threats, and its new ThreatScaner for Android apps are the company’s latest effort to combat cyber-attacks.
