Trend Micro Mobile Security
Comprehensive enterprise protection for mobile devices
The wide use and increasing capabilities of smartphones and PDAs introduce security risks to the medium business and enterprises that parallel those for laptop computers. Analysts predict that data-centric mobile devices will become a major target for virus writers, hackers, as well as pose a risk to data confidentiality. Lost or stolen devices can endanger confidential business data, compliance efforts and business reputations. Businesses suffer the costs from downtime, leaked data, infections, lost employee productivity, and cleanup. Trend Micro™ Mobile Security protects smartphones and PDAs from data loss, infections, and attacks from a central enterprise console that can also manage desktop protection. Encryption and authentication defends data integrity on lost or stolen devices. The anti-malware features block viruses, worms, Trojans, and SMS text message spam. Built-in firewall and IDS protects against hackers, intrusions, and denial-of-service attacks—potential threats to the increasing number of Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices.
