Prevent complex espionage attacks: Protectstar™ provides new Anti Spy Android version

September 02, 2020
Protectstar™ extends the functionality of its Anti Spy Android app with additional protection modules based on artificial intelligence. So-called spyware is commercially available software that allows unknown persons to spy on other mobile devices unnoticed. Potential victims neither agree to this nor are they informed about the spying activities.

With Protectstar™ Anti Spy Android unwanted espionage is a thing of the past. A comprehensive update based on intelligent AI Life Rules leads to a much more efficient detection of known and especially unknown spyware.

"AI Life Rules are several specific rules that the enhanced engine uses to find software products on the user's device that comply with the rules," explains Niklas Mayle, Head of Innovation Management at Protectstar™. "You can see an AI Life Rule as one piece of the puzzle and a software product as the whole puzzle. When the piece of the puzzle fits into the puzzle, our software strikes. If the puzzle piece does not fit, the software is safe or does not match the rules in the puzzle. According to the principle of "Pattern Matching".", says Chris Bohn, SEO of Protectstar.

The rules of the AI can be adapted by hand, but this can also be done by Protectstar™ if necessary. Niklas Mayle gives the following example: "If a rule recognizes a secure app (false positive), the rule adapts itself and this secure app is not recognized a second time. The whole thing also works vice versa. If a rule does not detect Malware but should detect it (false negative), the rule adapts itself again to detect the Malware in the future.“

Already more than 1 million users worldwide 
Within a few months, Protectstar™ registers almost one million new users who trust in Anti Spy Android. "Proof that customers are supporting our new course of improving protection with artificial intelligence," said Chris Bohn, SEO of Protectstar™.

Anti Spy Android does not collect user data, nor does it access contacts or other personal information. Currently, the app is available in English, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic.
