◎Employs an anti-virus engine from McAfee with an established reputation for anti-virus solutions.
CLOMO MDM Anti-virus Option uses an anti-virus engine from McAfee, a world leading vendor for anti-virus solutions. CLOMO MDM Anti-virus Option scans apps and files on a regular basis or at their installations and provides safety and security when you use an Android device. It scans not only the unit memory but also SD cards. It also protects devices from the latest viruses and threats by updating the virus definition information.
It is designed to minimize the burden to and battery consumption of devices.

◎Anti-mobile virus for corporate entities integrated with device management
Anti-virus is fully integrated with the device management in CLOMO MDM, which allows you to take anti-virus measures by having users use devices specified by the administrator under defined policy. By not making users to perform but centrally managing anti-virus; by understanding the utilization status of each device and performing emergency measures, you can mitigate security risks and ensure to response to emergency incidents in a prompt manner.

◎Sets up and bulk distributes security policies
Administrators are able to set up security policies for Android devices to bulk-distribute them to each device. Policies cannot be changed on device side and you can force unified operations across all the devices. Configurable policies are as follows.
(Enable/Disable real-time scans, Enable/Disable scheduled scans, Frequency of schedule scans, Enable/Disable auto updating of virus definition files, Frequency of updating of virus definition files)

◎Remotely executes anti-virus command
It allows administrators to execute ant-virus commands at any time separately from scheduled operations. This function is useful when an emergency response is required. Executable commands are as follows.
(Policy settings, immediate virus scan, immediate updating of virus definition files, status check for virus software)

◎Automatically informs virus detection information to the administrator
When a virus infected app is found on an Android device, the device will show a warning to notify the user and send an alert email to the administrator (*), which allows him/her to know which app is infected and respond immediately by disabling the starting of the infected app on the device management screen in CLOMO MDM. Also, on the device management screen, since CLOMO MDM is able to retrieve and display only the devices which an alert is issued, administrators can effectively manage multiple devices at high risk by bulk-restricting their operations and sending warning messages.
※Alert emails are processed and sent to the administrator every 60 minutes by a timer.
