F-Secure startet Cloud-Speicherdienst Younited

F-Secure startet Cloud-Speicherdienst Younited | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Nutzer erhalten bis Ende 2013 als Einstiegsangebot 10 GByte Speicherplatz kostenlos. Zahlende Kunden können bei Younited Pakete für 200 oder 500 GByte erwerben. Zudem hat F-Secure ehrgeizige Pläne, um das Angebot zu erweitern.

 

F-Secure hat mit Younited einen eigenen Cloud-Speicherdienst ins Leben gerufen. Mit ihm will das finnische Sicherheitsunternehmen Angeboten von Google, Microsoft und anderen US-Firmen Konkurrenz machen – und stellt daher den Betrieb in Finnland durch ein finnisches Unternehmen in den Vordergrund.

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Summer 2013 App Reputation Report to examine the hidden behaviors behind free and paid mobile apps

 

The cloud-based, fully automated Appthority App Risk Management Service performed static, dynamic and behavioral app analysis on the 400 most popular free and paid apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

 

  

Appthority analyzed each app for particular behaviors within a test environment

.

Highlights from the App Reputation Report are:

 

- Overall, 83% of the most popular apps are associated with security risks and privacy issues.

 

- iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. 91% of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, as compared to 80% of Android apps.

 

- 95% of the top free apps and 77.5% of the top paid apps exhibited at least one risky behavior.

 

- 78% of the most popular free Android apps identify the user's ID (UDID).

 

- Even though Apple prohibits its developers from accessing the UDID, 5.5% of the tested iOS apps still do.

 

- 72% of the top free apps track for the user's location, compared to 41% of paid apps.

 

- Although paid apps already generate revenue when downloaded, 59% of paid iOS and 24% of paid Android apps still support in-app purchasing.

 

- Furthermore, 39% of paid iOS and 16% of paid Android apps still share data with ad networks.
