F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile Protects Confidential Smartphone Data
- 05 January, 2010 15:47
<p>F-Secure announced today the availability of its new standalone smartphone solution, F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile. The solution provides three useful security features to protect your phone: remote lock, remote wipe and theft control and is available for Symbian and Windows Phone platforms.</p>
<p>The remote lock protects confidential information quickly and easily by locking the device with a single SMS message. The theft control feature activates if someone changes the SIM card by locking the device and informing you of the new number. The remote wipe is the ultimate safety measure, erasing all the data on the phone with a single SMS message.</p>
<p>Indi Siriniwasa, regional director for F-Secure Australia and New Zealand, says, “You carry your smartphone with you where ever you go, which means it can be particularly prone to being lost or stolen. Nowadays our mobiles contain a great deal of personal and confidential data that need protection. F-Secure’s standalone anti-theft software provides an easy and affordable way to make sure this information is not misused by anyone.”</p>
<p>F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile is also easy to upgrade to the all-in-one security solution, F-Secure Mobile Security, by activating the inbuilt automatic upgrade system. This adds new security features to the solution for an additional fee. You can see the currently available additional security features directly from the solution’s user interface.</p>
<p>F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile is now available through the F-Secure eStore (http://www.f-secure.com/en_AU/products/mobile/anti-theft-for-mobile) and later from selected mobile application stores and F-Secure mobile operator partners.</p>
