McAfee, Inc. has released McAfee VirusScan Mobile and McAfee VirusScan Mobile Enterprise Edition for the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform. The company says this new version helps protect users of Windows Mobile 5.0 against the latest malware and attacks, including what the company calls SMiShing attacks, or phishing scams via SMS.
McAfee VirusScan Mobile and McAfee VirusScan Mobile Enterprise Edition protect Windows Mobile 5.0 user devices from attacks via SMS, MMS, Bluetooth and other entry points. The software protects against the threats by automatically detecting and cleaning infected files before they can infect the device.
The software is kept fresh with updates being delivered as soon as threats are identified. It scans and cleans files, e-mails, Internet downloads, text messages, and attachments. If viruses, worms, Trojans, or other threats are found, an inline cleaning process automatically cleans the devices.
McAfee VirusScan Mobile is available for download as a 30-day trial from a PDA-friendly website.
