Posted on 7-Dec-2004 07:55 | Tags Filed under: News



Trend Micro, Inc. has announced the Trend Micro Mobile Security, an antivirus and anti-spam protection for SMS messaging customers using smartphones and PDAs.

Industry analysts predict that due to the rising popularity of data- centric mobile phones and PDAs, these devices will become an attractive target for virus writers. With the arrival of the holiday season, many people will be purchasing or receiving new handhelds as gifts. With this in mind, Trend Micro is offering its customers the first edition of Trend Micro Mobile Security free of charge until June 2005.

Trend Micro Mobile Security is compatible with devices from a number of the most popular handset providers, such as the Motorola MPx220, the O2 XPhone, the Sagem myS-7 and the Orange SPV e200.

"Many people will put hi-tech gadgets, data-centric mobile phones and PDAs on their holiday gift wish list. As the number of people using the devices increases, so they become more enticing targets for virus writers," said Raimund Genes, President of EMEA Operations at Trend Micro. "By offering the first version of Trend Micro Mobile Security free of charge, Trend Micro wishes to provide its customers and their data-centric devices a secure holiday season."

Trend Micro Mobile Security is available immediately for devices using the Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 operating system (Motorola MPx200, MPx220, O2 XPhone, Orange SPV C500). Devices using the Symbian OS v7.0 with UIQ v2.0/2.1 user interface will be supported in January 2005 (Sony Ericsson P800, P900, P910, Motorola A920, A925, A1000). Mobile phones and PDAs using the Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC Phone Edition (HP iPAQ, Samsung SPH-i700) and Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition (Dell Axim, HP iPAQ, Siemens SX66) will also be supported in January. Trend Micro Mobile Security version 1.0 expires June 2005.
