Helsinki, Finland – June 29, 2010: F-Secure announced today the availability of F-Secure Mobile Security 6 on the Android platform. Operators can now offer consumers and businesses a full range of F-Secure protection for smartphones on the Android, Symbian and Windows platforms, as well as data security services for PCs and Macs.
Patrik Sallner, VP, F-Secure’s Mobile Business Unit, says, “F-Secure Mobile Security is the world’s leading smartphone security solution and we are very pleased to make it available for Android alongside other popular mobile platforms. This means our operator partners can now provide their customers with comprehensive IT security covering both smartphones and computers.”
F-Secure Mobile Security 6 provides complete security for smartphones against malicious software and also safeguards confidential data even if the phone is lost or stolen. Its innovative Browsing Protection make Internet use and mobile financial transactions safer than ever for smartphone users.
Patrick Sallner says, “Today’s smartphones are designed for surfing the web and financial transactions like online banking and shopping. In our recent survey* we found that over a third of users surf the web with their smartphones and just over 10% use them for online banking. F-Secure’s advanced technology gives peace of mind for smartphone users so they can enjoy their devices to the full without worrying that sensitive information may fall in the wrong hands.”
Browsing Protection identifies which websites are safe to enter and blocks harmful sites that try to spread malware or steal confidential information, such as banking details. The Anti-Theft feature makes it possible to remotely lock the phone or erase the data on the phone if it is lost or stolen. It can also inform you of the new number if the SIM card is changed and show you the phone’s location, so you can track down who has your smartphone. F-Secure Mobile Security 6 also protects smartphones against malicious software, including spying tools, viruses and trojans. Frequent automatic updates, immediate reaction times and fast cures during new and emerging threats are guaranteed by the F-Secure Labs, which operate 24 hours a day worldwide. F-Secure is a pioneer in mobile security and has already been protecting mobile devices for a full ten years.
