WOBURN, MA – March 16, 2016 – / — Kaspersky Lab and WISeKey today announced the release of a special edition of the cyber-resilience app, WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security. This new edition integrates the best technologies from both cyber-security companies to offer mobile users safer and more reliable mobile communications and transactions.

The WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security cyber-resilience edition locks personal data such as account usernames and passwords, credit card numbers, and access PINs into a secure personal data organizer, creating accountable identities for online activity while the data itself remains protected in a secure cloud vault.

Mobile security threats are increasing in number and sophistication, with cybercriminals looking for ways to hijack mobiles for Bitcoin mining, or to trick mobile users into giving up their personal identity and bank account information. Even though mobile operating systems provide app developers with significant security features, cybercriminals have still been able to exploit the massive installed base of Android and iOS devices, using many different infection vectors to place malware.

Without mobile security software, consumers are vulnerable to all these threats and more. The WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security includes Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK, a robust and proven solution for protecting mobile phones against security threats. The inclusion of SDK in the app delivers advanced security features like web and network protection, device protection and risk detection to smartphones, offering users an effective layer of self-defense.

Among other things, WISeID keeps passwords in an encrypted vault, generates hard-to-crack passwords, and safely synchronizes data between computers and devices on multiple platforms, using secure cloud storage. The vault can be unlocked only with the user’s Master Password and/or defined pattern, with additional protection provided through facial recognition authentication.

WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security with built-in Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK is available now for iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac OSX, Windows and Kindle,
