TrustGo Earns Checkmark Certification from West Coast Labs

Respected Independent Security Lab Gives TrustGo its Highest Rating

Santa Clara, Calif., September 25, 2012 – TrustGo Mobile Inc. (TrustGo), a leading mobile security company, today announced that its TrustGo Antivirus & Mobile Security app for Android has received West Coast Lab’s highest rating in its recent certification testing. West Coast Labs, part of the Haymarket Media Group, is one of the world’s leading independent test facilities for information security products and services.

To gain Checkmark Certification, a product must detect all of the mobile viruses, worms, spyware and other malware in its test suite. This suite contains today’s most prevalent virus samples that are gathered in West Coast Lab’s global malware “honey pot” and current monthly WildList Collections. TrustGo scored 100% accuracy in detecting and eradicating all the samples in these databases.

“West Coast Labs’ Checkmark is a great achievement for our team. We are continually pushing to improve our detection capabilities and this award is another feather in our cap,” says Xuyang Li, CEO of TrustGo. The West Coast Labs Checkmark Certification adds to TrustGo’s roster of industry awards and certifications that includes the recent listing of TrustGo as one of AV Comparative’s top security apps.
