Snapdragon 820 to Include Real-Time Malware Detection

Avast Builds Threat Detection Based on Machine Learning to Protect Users from Zero Day Attacks, Malware, and Privacy Threats.

Qualcomm is promising to improve security and privacy on high-end smartphones with Snapdragon Smart Protect, which uses on-device machine learning to help detect zero-day malware.-Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Smart Protect Supports On-device Behavioral Analysis for High Security and Malware Detection on the Forthcoming Snapdragon 820- SAN DIEGO, Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), is extending its mobile security technology leadership with the introduction of Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Smart Protect. Qualcomm Technologies developed Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM Smart Protect to detect and classify zero-day and transformed malware in real time using machine learning-based behavioral analysis, to improve privacy protection and device security.

While Qualcomm is building support for Smart Protect into the Snapdragon 820 processor, the company won’t necessarily be providing an app directly to users. At its most basic, that could be an application that takes a photo even though the display is off or an application sending an SMS without any user interaction. “We can look at many different aspects of what applications are doing; what resources they request, what system calls they make, and then look at a sequence of events and decide if something is malicious,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, senior director of security product management at Qualcomm. The company said this technology is not only beneficial for consumers, who can breathe a little easier knowing data on their device is better protected, but also for operators, as it can “reduce the burden of fraudulent charges and network congestion often associated with malware-infected devices”. While consumers will benefit from better protection, OEMs and mobile operators will benefit from reducing the risk of data leakage and malware attacks for their users. Avast Software (www.avast.com), maker of the most trusted mobile and PC security in the world, protects 230 million people and businesses with its security applications.

In business for over 25 years, Avast is one of the pioneers in the computer security business, with a portfolio that includes free antivirus for PC, Mac, and Android, to premium suites and services for both consumers and business. Qualcomm Haven also features Qualcomm® Snapdragon Sense™ ID 3D fingerprint technology, Qualcomm® Snapdragon StudioAccess™ content protection and Qualcomm® SafeSwitch™ technology. In addition to being top-ranked by consumers on popular download portals worldwide, Avast is certified by, among others, VB100, AV-Comparatives, AV-Test, OPSWAT, ICSA Labs, and West Coast Labs.

Getting the user interface right is almost as important as the technology itself, because the protection might be compromised if users don’t understand the warnings it presents. For more than 25 years, Qualcomm ideas and inventions have driven the evolution of digital communications, linking people everywhere more closely to information, entertainment and each other.

The number of so-called false positives, which is when security software thinks something is a threat when it isn’t, will also decide how successful Smart Protect is. Qualcomm, Snapdragon, SecureMSM, and Snapdragon StudioAccess are trademarks of Qualcomm Incorporated, registered in the United States and other countries.

After all, technologies that should be able to detect zero-day vulnerabilities have been around for a long time in networks, and hackers are still wreaking havoc. However, the combination of signature-based security software, technologies such Qualcomm’s Smart Protect and vendors working harder to plug vulnerabilities should help at least make life a little more difficult for the bad guys.
