Cambridge, 23 October 2003 – Pointsec Mobile Technologies, a subsidiary of IT security company Protect Data, and a global leader in enterprise security software for laptops, desktops, PDAs and smart phones, today released a new mobile security solution: Pointsec(r) for Symbian OS. The company already offers security solutions for Windows-based computers, Pocket PC and Palm OS. With Pointsec(r) for Symbian OS, Pointsec now offers protection for all leading mobile platforms.

As business becomes increasingly mobile, the risks associated with storing confidential information on mobile devices also increase. If your Symbian OS device is stolen or lost, the information is normally fully accessible. Pointsec(r) for Symbian OS is an encryption application for stored information that provides the strongest available protection for Symbian OS devices.

Using on-the fly, user-transparent encryption, Pointsec for Symbian OS automatically encrypts all files before they are stored on a device and automatically decrypts the files again when they are opened, without any need for user intervention.

Pointsec for Symbian OS protects all of your information, including graphics, SMS and e-mail messages, Word and Adobe Acrobat documents as well as PowerPoint presentations. It also protects information stored on memory cards.

Pointsec Mobile Technologies has been developing advanced IT security solutions for 15 years. The company has earned important security certifications, including FIPS 140-1, considered one of the leading IT security standards. Pointsec has received much acclaim for its exclusive, patent-pending PicturePIN(tm) and QuickPIN(tm) authentication, which replace traditional alphanumeric login passwords with easy to remember, picture-based login codes.

Secure enterprise solutions for an increasingly mobile workforce have helped Pointsec build a strong and thriving client base amongst many of the world’s largest corporations including the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, WM-data, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Cisco, Telia and Ericsson.
