Symbian Device Protection Gets Stronger With Mobile Firewall

F-Secure Corporation extended the support for its F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus to Microsoft’s Windows Mobile operating system. Symbian Series 80 users will also get a new product called F-Secure Mobile Security, which contains a mobile firewall alongside anti-virus functionality.

F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus provides real-time on-device protection with automatic over-the-air antivirus updates. It is also designed to be as easy to use as possible; to prevent infections, all files are automatically intercepted and scanned when they are saved, copied, downloaded, synchronized or otherwise modified meaning that there is no need for user intervention. The software automatically scans all files on memory cards and when an infected file is detected, it is immediately quarantined in order to protect all other data in the system.

With this latest release now in place, F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus is available for Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003/2003SE Pocket PCs Phone Edition, meaning devices such as Qtek9090, MDA III, Qtek2020, Qtek S100 and MDA Compact as well as T-Mobile branded devices MDA II, MDA III and MDA Compact. F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus supporting Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003/2003SE for Smartphones Edition covers such devices as Motorola MPX220, Qtek8200, Qtek8010, Qtek8020, SDA, Qtek8100 and SDA Music as well as T-Mobile branded devices MDA II, MDA III and MDA Compact.
