The first mobile security cloud model was introduced by NetQin Mobile today.
The model is composed of three parts:
- A cloud security platform – knowledge repositories including mobile viruses repositories, spam message repositories, phishing site repositories.
- High-efficient engines in the “mobile terminal” (e.g., virus scanning engine, intelligent spam-identification engine) etc.
- A cloud security center that processes all the analysis work at the backend and then distributes to the cloud security client, e.g. mobile terminals. The mobile security cloud model gives service providers a scalable ability to solve new emerging mobile security issues.
Mobile security cloud refers to collecting large amounts of virus samples, malware, malicious websites, etc. to form a mobile security knowledge repository, and handling security threats through an efficient virus scanning engine and a spam message filtering engine based on the mobile security knowledge repository.
