Qualcomm on Monday announced its next-gen Snapdragon 820 mobile processor will offer anti-malware tools designed to keep users from the various threats that invariably pop up. Called “Smart Protect”, it’s billed as “real-time, on-device machine learning”, and it’s aimed at protecting users with enhanced security and privacy.

Qualcomm isn’t going to sit on the technology; it is working with OEMS and mobile security providers, too. The collaboration should lead to more secure apps and a generally safer mobile experience.

[blockquote author=”Qualcomm”]With consumers storing more personal information on their devices, data leakage incidents and malware are on the rise. Snapdragon Smart Protect supports deep on-device monitoring for nearly instantaneous notifications of detected privacy violations and malicious activity while also providing great system performance and battery life[/blockquote]

The first devices to boast a Snapdragon 820 processor are expected in the first half of 2016. With that said, we’ll likely see said smartphones or tablets make their debut at CES in early January.
