Engineers Qualcomm introduced a system Snapdragon Smart Protect, the ability to track the behavior of the application, notify the user about overly broad powers of the loaded software or when it detects suspicious activity. Unlike third-party anti-virus products, it is almost impossible to cheat. Chip maker also claims more opportunities analysis.

It is noted that Smart Protect is supported in the new Snapdragon chipset 820, but Qualcomm itself is not going to create their own anti-virus. Instead, the company will provide access to the API manufacturers of smartphones and specialized software developers. By the way, in the list of project partners already appear AVG, Avast and Lookout.
