Security firm G Data has unveiled MobileSecurity at CeBIT 2011 taking place in Hanover, Germany 1 to 5 March.

Malware targeting Android is increasing, according to the Symantec official blog, as predicted by security firm McAfee, which reported a 46% increase in 2010.

G Data says the product is aimed at providing protection against malware and fraudulent apps for smartphones and tablet PCs running Google's Android operating system.

MobileSecurity 2012 is designed to monitor all apps and prevent unwanted sending of SMS messages or internet browsing.

The software will be available from April 2011 at £9.99, but will be available for free download to current G Data customers with valid licences.
