Symantec has launched the first ever consumer mobile security for smartphones. The Norton Smartphone Security will provide users with the same level of security found in laptops and other computing devices. The product which is available for £19.99 is compatible with both Windows Mobile and Symbian OS devices.
Norton Smartphone Security should give piece of mind to smartphone users who use their devices to regularly browse the web or even conduct monetary transactions. With insecure public Wi-Fi or network connections, web and email viruses can directly infect smartphones, placing them at risk of hackers accessing private information or disabling the devices applications.
The software can be programmed to block SMS and MMS text messages, as well as group email addresses, while an in-built firewall will prevent hackers from entering and exporting data from your phone. Norton Smartphone Security is available from UK stores or online at www.symantecstore.co.uk.
