F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus will be available through Nokia to the users of four recently announced devices based on S60 3rd Edition - Nokia N71, Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70.
For the Nokia N71, F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus will be distributed on the memory card in the standard device sales package, while for the Nokia Eseries devices, the antivirus client will be available at Nokia Catalogs service.
F-Secure and Nokia have been cooperating in the area of increasing content security for years and have jointly developed distribution models for antivirus solutions. From 2004 onwards, F Secure Mobile Anti-Virus clients have already been available through Nokia to the users of select Nokia's smartphone models. In addition, F Secure Mobile Anti-Virus clients have been included into some operator variants of Nokia's mobile devices.
F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus provides real-time, on-device protection against harmful content with automatic over-the-air antivirus updates. The new F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus 3.0 supports devices based on Symbian OS v9 and the S60 3rd Edition platform.
