Leveraging NQ Mobile's leadership in the detection of risks including spyware, phishing and viruses, the service will ensure a safe downloading channel for end users by identifying malicious software before it can be circulated. The collaboration will bring a pre-scanning service from NQ Mobile for all applications and plug-ins prior to their inclusion in HTC's App Store. This will protect the growing number of HTC subscribers from the ever-increasing risks of mobile viruses and malware by preventing harmful downloads from being made available in HTC's App Store in the first place.

"Guaranteeing a safe mobile environment is a large undertaking, and we are proud that HTC is joining NQ Mobile to stop malware before it has a chance to harm consumers," commented Gavin Kim, Chief Product Officer, NQ Mobile. "We look forward to helping HTC subscribers get the most out of their mobile experience and enjoy the assurance of threat-free downloads."

"With HTC's philosophy of pursuing excellence, the security service experts of NQ Mobile were the natural choice of partner for our efforts to curtail the spread of mobile malware," said Ray Yam, corporate VP and head of HTC Communication in China.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
