F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus 3.0 Available For Symbian OS v9 and S60 3rd Edition Platform

by Darla Mack

Fsc_web F-Secure and Nokia have announced that F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus will be available through Nokia to the users of Nokia N71, Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70.

For the Nokia N71, F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus will be distributed on the memory card in the standard device sales package, while for the Nokia Eseries devices, the anti-virus client will be available at Nokia Catalogues service.

F-Secure and Nokia have been cooperating in the area of increasing content security for several years, and have developed distribution models for anti-virus solutions together. Since 2004 F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus clients have been available through Nokia to the users of certain Nokia smartphone models. In addition, F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus clients have been included into some operator variants of Nokia’s mobile devices.

Importing the anti-virus software into the mobile device is an easy solution for the user. Once the anti-virus client has been installed in the device, the user only needs to activate the anti-virus update service.

“Easy discovery and activation are critical to encouraging the adoption of an anti-virus service. The cooperation with Nokia is a great addition to our offering. By combining our automatic anti-virus solution with the enhanced security features of Nokia’s smartphones, we are providing a competitive solution against harmful content,” said Antti Vihavainen, vice-president of mobile security at F-Secure.

“As the market leader, Nokia is determined to be active in the development of security controls and preventive measures against malicious software. Providing anti-virus software such as the F-Secure anti-virus clients for select devices is a natural step towards our aim to bring the most advanced security features into S60-based smartphones," said Seppo Laukkanen, vice president of product management at Nokia.

F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus provides increased real-time, on-device protection against harmful content with automatic over-the-air anti-virus updates. It is the world’s first and most widely available mobile operator anti-virus service. The new F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus 3.0 supports devices based on Symbian OS v9 and the S60 3rd Edition platform.
