Joining the ranks of countless other paid mobile malware apps, CA Mobile Security does very little to stand out from the crowd. The user interface is not very user friendly, and there is no help menu with which you can learn the ins and outs of the app. CA does offer free technical support if you have any questions, but most people probably won't want to call a help line in order to get a smartphone app up and running. Like most other security apps, CA Mobile Security allows you to set parental controls, backup and restore a device, and scan for malware but in the time I've spent with the app I have noticed several quirks and bugs that set it behind its competition.
