List of Mobile Security Vendors

We get sometimes asked why we do not test all mobile security (anti-malware) products out there. There exist several hundred apps worldwide, if we would count every rebranded security software or other various products providing some form of security.

In the mobile security comparative tests/reviews, we usually include only products of vendors which applied to get their security product scrutinized and publicly evaluated.

Below you can find a list of about 50 relatively well-known mobile security vendors (for Android), just to give you an impression that there are more products out there then most of the users even known/heard about.

You can send us suggestions for other mobile security (anti-malware) vendors to include in this list, or in case you find an error / outdated information.

About AV-Comparatives

AV-Comparatives is an independent organization offering systematic testing that checks whether security software, such as PC/Mac-based antivirus products and mobile security solutions, lives up to its promises. Using one of the largest sample collections worldwide, it creates a real-world environment for truly accurate testing. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions. Certification by AV-Comparatives provides an official seal of approval for software performance which is globally recognized. Currently, AV-Comparatives' Real-World Protection Test is the most comprehensive and complex test available when it comes to evaluating the real-life protection capabilities of antivirus software. Put simply, the test framework replicates the scenario of an everyday user in an everyday online environment – the typical situation that most of us experience when using a computer with an Internet connection. AV-Comparatives works closely with several academic institutions, especially the University of Innsbruck’s Department of Computer Science, to provide innovative scientific testing methods.
If you plan to buy an Anti-Virus, please visit the vendor's site and evaluate their software by downloading a trial version, as there are also many other features and important things for an Anti-Virus that you should evaluate by yourself. Even if quite important, the data provided in the test reports on this site are just some aspects that you should consider when buying Anti-Virus software.
