Qualcomm today said the Snapdragon 820 processor will contain new anti-malware tools to protect smartphone users from threats. Qualcomm Snapdragon Smart Protect can provide "real-time, on-device machine learning" to detect zero-day malware before it wreaks havoc on smartphone owners. Snapdragon Smart Protect relies on Qualcomm's Zeroth technology, which adds "classification and cause analysis using an advanced cognitive computing behavioral engine." The end result, says Qualcomm, should be safer smartphone use across the web. Qualcomm is making the technology available to phone makers and app developers, along with an API, so they can build Qualcomm Smart Protect into their products. The Snapdragon 820 isn't expected to arrive until the first half of 2016.
