F-Secure Offers Mobile Security

F-Secure announced the launch of its latest mobile product, called F-Secure Mobile Security

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- F-SecureR Corporation announced today the launch of its latest mobile product, called F-Secure Mobile Security. F-Secure Mobile Security enables secure mobile computing by combining an integrated antivirus and firewall. Device-resident protection safeguards the mobile device from any type of attack (box shot available).

In addition to previous versions of F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus, the F-Secure Mobile Security for S 60, 3rd edition now features a firewall to guard against mobile malware threats and intrusion attempts. The addition of the firewall now evolves F-Secure Mobile Security to the status of a full security product. F-Secure is the first mobile security vendor to offer a complete mobile security solution with firewall for devices based on S60 3rd Edition and Symbian OS v9.

The addition of a firewall represents an important step forward for the level of protection available for smartphones and multimedia computers. These devices now have Wi-Fi connectivity which helps end-users to take full advantage of rich internet experiences. The firewall featured in the new F-Secure Mobile Security solution has pre-defined firewall profiles for regulating both incoming and outgoing traffic, providing easy and automatic protection.

Commenting on the new product, Kimmo Alkio, President and CEO at F-Secure said: "We are delighted to continue our work in the vanguard of creating a secure environment for smartphone users. The actions of smartphone operating system vendors such as Symbian have increased the general security level in smartphones against mobile viruses. These actions are a good start but do not provide an answer to threats such as public network intrusions. Our product development for mobile security continues apace and introducing a firewall to the product is a logical step that finds its analogy in F-Secure's PC products. The added firewall feature is important as most new smartphones have access to wireless public networks available for example at airports and other public places. People should realize that smartphones too can also be attacked through a Wi-Fi connection and not only by mobile viruses."
