TeliaSonera will provide device management for SMEs as a hosted service for its enterprise customers.

F-Secure Mobile Security ensures comprehensive mobile terminal protection with functionality and ease of use. The antivirus application shields the device against viruses, spyware, worms and trojans. Combined with real time, on-device protection, these features ensure a carefree mobile computing experience.

The standard provided by the Open Mobile Alliance has been the cornerstone in enabling device management functionality in the F-Secure Mobile Security solution. F-Secure has worked for years to ensure that its Mobile Security solutions are compliant with this standard.

Nokia Intellisync Device management is a flexible and cost effective over the air device management solution for remotely managing mobile devices in business environments. The solution supports both inhouse IT and service provider deployment models.

Nokia Intellisync Device Management allows IT administrators to remotely install, update and manage applications on mobile devices.
