Best free Anti-Malware for Android

As an android user, time to time there is genuine after thought of installing anti-malware inside mobile operating system. As in most cases, we have seen, the software installs it has been similar to Windows and due to ever increasing performance and acceptability among all many, there are many viruses as we know it is directly proportional to the popularity of operating system. You need a must have anti malware for your mobile OS, so that, in case any vulnerability in terms of securing your system, it will work as a complete defender. When using it on a mobile device, I would like to prefer an anti malware, which has relatively low impact on the phone, friendly to RAM and should have a strong protection in terms of stopping of malwares.

One such free anti-malware for your mobile phone is TrustGo Antivirus & Mobile Security, which works seamlessly with your mobile device. After installation it will ask to create a TrustGo account, it is not compulsory but it is very well recommended, as it will back up your contact, sms and call logs into its online account, and you do not have to worry about your contact list when you change your device. There are three dots at the upper right hand side, known as action bar menu point and tap those points, from there you can restrict and control all security scanners easily. For system manager, you have the option to restrict mobile data usage limit, though it is not mandatory, as Android Jelly Bean setting, in built control of data maintenance is already there.

Enable secure web browsing on the dash board by sliding the button and it will stop some adds that are being shown on the games after the game finished, its secure web browsing is stopping all ads except from Google, and if you want to stop Google, there is one setting inside Android Jelly bean there, is one setting inside Google, where you can disable advertisement suggestions from Google. The data backup function is for contacts, calls and messages, all there are backed up within seconds to a secure trusted cloud server, the user can access these while surfing on a browser by logging into website with the same user name and password and with it the user can install the contact into some other Android device in order to have a seamless integration of contacts.

Though if you have Samsung smart phone along with Android, then while creating contact, you will be asked to open a Samsung account which will make it always on cloud service and when you want to transfer yours contact to some other Samsung android mobile, then you simply have to configure that phone with your Samsung account and automatically, all the contacts transferred to your new phone.

So far two conveniences with TrustGo mobile are already installed with Android Jelly Bean, but here you can control the mobile operation and all the personal configuration can be configured easily. This app can identify, eliminate and protect your device from unspecified security vulnerabilities that can impact on your system. The system manager, cloud protection and device manager helps you track your system when it is lost or stolen. From a distance, you can identify the location of your mobile device.

The principal user interface of application has two tabs one is for: security and app manager. It will scan your device of all the apps installed and then if it finds anything, it will as for clean up, it is a completely seamless integration and the anti-malware works in the background and consistently protecting your device from alien threats. From system manager, you can monitor your device, measure data connection and can limit it and RAM clean up for faster system.

Here, RAM tidy up is available in Android Jelly Bean, so it is not a new function. The second tab on the dashboard is application manager, it has two sub segment namely: My apps, and Hot apps, and in My apps, you will have the listings of all the application installed on your system, in Hot apps, there are links to third party applications suggested by TrustGo. Perhaps it is the revenue generation mode of this free anti malware application. From My apps, you can uninstall anything if you feel that some apps are interfering with your privacy or sending anonymous usage stats outside.

The device protection feature can block anonymous user, or if your mobile is stolen the to disable or uninstall it easily, as it will ask the user for a password, of yours TrustGo mobile in order to have a clean uninstall from it. The lock, alarm and wipe command works flawlessly, but you can completely disable your device from web interface, but it appears after it finds the true location of phone, as we know it will take time to find the location of phone due to GPS and other forms of location methodology. If your device has the front camera, then it will take the snap shot of the thief and send it to an online account, and with this, the tracking of your phone, and catching of thieves, becomes easier.

Its security apps finder engine suggests and shows which apps are safe and this delightful white list apps lists the entire application protection becomes easier. It’s constantly updated cloud service is very fast to catch up all the threats that are lurking in and around the web. This anti-malware is light on resources and does not hug RAM, as while idle it will take approximately 4MB RAM while, on us it will take maximum 12 MB of RAM. It is brilliant for the users who have lesser RAM on their device and also if you have high end smart phone then also a lower RAM conducive anti-malware is always preferable.

TrustGo mobile security runs as a standalone program in the mobile operating system, in Android Jelly Bean it stays at the notification bar all the time, signifying that it is always running in the background. It is a totally free device protection. Its candid camera feature take screen shot of thieves who happen to steal your device, it takes a screen shot of the thief and sends it to your email and by utilizing this investigating officer can trace the person and your mobile. Earlier, location tracking of Android devices took time, but now with the introduction of Google’s own location tracking. Now it is easier and finer to track the location easy as it is now inbuilt within yours android device.

On the whole, anti malware inside smart phone and mobile operating system is a recent phenomena due to advent of modern smart phones, with the operations almost similar to that of computers, and for this there are every chances of malwares crippling into yours phone and making it sluggish in performance and increase waiting time. Google Play is the source of further application installation and Google has disabled by default of application installation from other sources like that of Samsung apps if you have a Samsung mobile.

Though one can reactivate this by going to: setting and the security but it is not always working due to security implemented from Google from Android, as we can see that Google has restricted applications in its application store and now it is controlling the installation and if any malware infected application there inside the Google Play store then it can ban the publisher and immediately clean all the vulnerabilities.

With due course of time Google is going towards the way of Microsoft of creating its own anti malwares like Windows Defender in Windows 8, though Google has not done that but it is controlling malwares through applications and I would suggest you should not root the device as Google will protect it all it can through its security manner and who else know better about internet than the giant of internet Google. You can download TrustGo anti-malware from Google Play store for free!

Data Dictionary of Oracle Database

Importance of Oracle Database in this age of core-computing is the presence of both logical which is read only and the real databases which is empowered to save working and management of database to work in absolutely perfect manner. Data dictionary is the major part of Oracle database which aims to provide read only access to clients about the part of database and this means these can only be edited while logging into real server.

If you log into artificial server or the client side then some part can be edited but some other parts such as data dictionary provides the read only access which means cannot be edited at any point of times from outside or client side servers. It contains the perfect definitions of schema objects which are the main parts of oracle database.

It has definitions for tables, views, functions and all the other schema objects intended to use with oracle database. It defines what are the storage space in real server of schema objects and what are storage capacity inside logical server so as to provide one of major distinctions for security management to look deeper into work capacity of schema objects to perform in real time.

It provides the names of users who can edit and manage original oracle database as well as it provides the length of tables and the scope of tables to provide in real time management work. It showcase the integrity of oracle users such as those are the clients which can provide information on logical server but cannot edit the real server where the real database are stored inside. Thus it separates organisation workers from clients so that integrity of oracle real server stays alright and thus increases the security prameters of database.

So, this means all parts of data dictionary are stored inside system table space. This means these are stored inside real database not inside logical database and this means that clients and other customers do not have to rectify nd modify tables of data dictionary as it is situated inside system or real database.

This goes on to show data dictionary is not so important for clients and customers as they deal with only logical side of oracle database and there they do not have to worry about the presence of data dictionary. On the other hand when all of these integrity of functions when compared with logical database where inputs are from clients and customers then it is compared with real database with integration of data tables as and when defined and then everything is compare with origin of queries and then compare those queries with data dictionary from system drive and all of these becomes extremely critical while considering the security and management of data integrity.

It also examines the probability of functionalities of base tables, and it is rarely used and only used by Oracle database or real system database and these are well-protected with encryption and most of times in critical inspection of security these base tables are used otherwise there is hardly the use of these base table in normal circumstances.

There are serious caution while using data dictionary inside data tables. If someone altered the codes inside oracle data dictionary then authenticity of each and every part of data dictionary and oracle databases becomes defunct and for this one need not in normal circumstances change the performances of data dictionary of oracle database.
