F-Secure to support OMA DM in mobile antivirus management

This year’s 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona sees the introduction of a new version of the F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus service which can now be managed with external device management platforms based on the OMA (Open Mobile Alliance) Device Management standard.

The announcement comes with the arrival of F-Secure’s most recent mobile security offering, F-Secure Mobile Security 3.1 for S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 to be showcased with the latest Nokia S60 3rd Edition devices in the 3GSM World congress. This latest version of the F-Secure Mobile Security product promises new improved application architecture enabling a more flexible feature response to both corporate and consumer needs — these modifications coming in anticipation of F-Secure’s support for all OMA DM Platforms in the second quarter of 2007.

In the present offering of F-Secure Mobile Security, functionality includes firewall protection for devices with WLAN to ensure full use of available networks with the assurance of comprehensive data security. In addition, the latest version of F-Secure Mobile Security contains new predefined firewall configurations to allow individual users and enterprises to set the desired protection level for their phone with ease.
