SMobile Introduces Protection Software Against BlackBerry Malware Threat
Posted on 15-Aug-2006 19:53 | Tags Filed under: News



SMobile Systems has released a mobile anti-virus solution for BlackBerry offering protection against many vulnerabilities exposed by the BBProxy security tools, released to the public early this week by Jesse D'Aguanno, a consultant with risk management firm Praetorian Global.

SMobile's VirusGuard for BlackBerry provides broad detection and protection of new malware threats to BlackBerry, including the specific malware attack demonstrated by D'Aguanno at the recent DEFCON hacker convention in Las Vegas.

SMobile's VirusGuard for BlackBerry stops malware and other threats at the handset. In contrast, security measures instituted at the corporate network level typically require IT administrators to enforce strict device capability limitations, such as prohibiting the downloading of third-party applications onto the device. This potentially blocks users' access to key applications that would otherwise improve job performance and increase productivity.

SMobile's VirusGuard for BlackBerry is available today for personal, enterprise, and government use.
