Symantec releases Mobile AntiVirus 4.0 for Windows Mobile
Symantec Corp. has announced its Mobile AntiVirus 4.0 for Windows Mobile, developed to work on Pocket PCs and smartphones running on the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform. The software automatically protects mobile devices from threats transmitted via e-mail and multimedia messaging service (MMS), downloaded from memory cards, the cellular network and Wi-Fi, transmitted by Bluetooth or beamed over infrared connections.

Symantec Mobile AntiVirus 4.0 for Windows Mobile uses Symantecís LiveUpdate Wireless service to automatically update threat protection signatures to ensure protection against new viruses, Trojans, and worms. Additionally, the centralized management feature enables administrators to configure, lock, and enforce security policies on the handset from a centralized console.

According to a global survey conducted by Symantec, a significant majority of companies do not adequately address smartphone security. A majority of respondents allow their employees to purchase their own smartphones, but only 10 percent have deployed comprehensive smartphone security systems. The survey also finds that 80 percent of companies that allow corporate data on handheld mobile devices do not secure that data.

Symantec Mobile AntiVirus 4.0 for Windows Mobile is scheduled to be available in mid-February 2007 through Symantecís direct sales force, enterprise VAR channel, system integrators and select OEM partners.

Symantec also introduces a new Try/Buy license manager that allows organizations and individuals to evaluate the software before purchasing.
