Google Play is waiting for the next cleaning and they want to detect malware before they appear in the application store
Google has announced the App Defense Alliance program, which aims to minimize the presence of malware in the Play Store and prevent them from arriving on Android devices. For this noble mission, the search giant has teamed up with companies like ESET, Lookout, and Zimperium specializing in mobile security.
Good Corporation sets the task not to wait for malware to infect devices, and an alert will be issued to indicate the presence of a vulnerability. Prevention and measures are needed that will prevent malware from penetrating Android devices.
In general terms, Google describes its mission as "reducing the risk of malware, identifying new threats and protecting users."
ESET, Lookout and Zimperium specialists will be engaged in the study of new applications and the Google Play utilities catalog for security, and neural networks and artificial intelligence will help in this.
It is expected that now before being on the shelves of the application store, the utilities will go through the filters for checking for potential threats and vulnerabilities.
