Qualcomm Smart Protect coming with Snapdragon 820 for improved security

Qualcomm is known for being a huge name in mobile processors, but it’s also put a lot of effort into working on mobile security. Its latest effort is Qualcomm Smart Protect, which uses cognitive computing for real-time malware detection, classification and analysis. That allows it to protect against zero-day malware threats and complement ordinary signature-based anti-malware programs, with Qualcomm Smart Protect detecting and protecting against new threats even before a signature is updated.

Since Smart Protect will be built right into upcoming Snapdragon processors, such as the Snapdragon 820, it can constantly monitor apps and services to detect if any malicious activity is taking place without your knowledge. Qualcomm is also working with existing anti-malware companies, such as Lookout and AVG, to make their services and Smart Protect work in the best way possible together.

Qualcomm will launch Smart Protect in 2016 with the launch of the Snapdragon 820 processor.
