Antivirus On Nokia Series 60 Smart Phones

Sunday 9 October 2005 @ 11:02 pm

We have heard lots of viruses and worms infecting mobile phones nowadays, some even pretend to be antivirus software installed in the mobile phone. Before the situation getting worse, Nokia has come out with a proactive solution which is to install Symantec’s Mobile Security software on its Series 60 and Symbian based phones.

In fact, Nokia and Symantec have come to an agreement to pre-install Mobile Security on Series 60 smart phones.

Mobile Security provide anti-virus protection by closing vulnerable ports. The software’s AutoProtect feature runs a continuing scan that looks for malicious code, and also acts as a firewall. The software can be updated over the wireless network.

This move is a good one as more personal and confidential data is storing in mobile phone. Virus or Worms infection will open up the possibility of leaking of confidential data on the phone. So, with an antivirus running as background application can hugely reduce the threat.

Now Nokia’s N70 already has Mobile Security running by default, and soon we will see more phone models have the antivirus install. I am wondering will the speed of accessing other applications get affected with an antivirus continuously running.
