Symantec Corp. has announced Symantec AntiVirus for Handhelds Corporate Edition 3.5, a virus protection solution designed to secure wireless devices running on Palm OS, Microsoft Windows Mobile and Pocket PC platforms.

Symantec AntiVirus for Handhelds Corporate Edition 3.5 helps safeguard corporate assets and protects against the potential spread of malicious code downloaded from the Web, email or a Wi-Fi connection, or beamed via Bluetooth or infrared ports.

With new configuration management capabilities using Symantec Client Security with the Symantec System Center console, IT organizations can improve their overall corporate security posture with greater control over securing wireless devices accessing sensitive company data.

Symantec AntiVirus for Handhelds Corporate Edition 3.5 enables secure mobile computing through on-device, real-time scanning and alerting of potential security threats. Flexible on-demand, scheduled and automatic scan options provide continuous, up-to-date virus definitions via Wireless LiveUpdate for virus removal, repair and the deleting of infected files.

The 3.5 version also enables customers using Symantec Client Security deployed with the Symantec System Center console to install a plug-in to manage configurations and policy enforcement over mobile devices. Additionally, support is now available for all Windows Mobile platforms including the Windows Mobile 5.0 OS, with the exception of Windows Mobile Smartphone.

The software is available as a license to enterprise customers.
