Kaspersky Lab, a provider of security solutions that protect against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, crimeware, rootkits, phishing, hacker attacks and spam, today announced the release of a new product for the integrated protection of smartphones running Symbian and Windows Mobile.
Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 offers powerful protection for data stored on smartphones in the event that the device is lost, as well as protecting against network attacks, malware and SMS spam. A series of technical and functional modifications have improved the performance of the product, making it more effective and user-friendly.
Key new functions available in Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 allow users to completely block a lost device or to remotely delete all the data on it. Moreover, if a smartphone is stolen, the SIM-Watch function prevents the thief from accessing data on the phone without the original SIM card; as soon as the original SIM card is replaced, a message notifies its owner of the new telephone number.
Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 scans incoming files and network connections in real-time, performing antivirus scans of the whole device on demand or on schedule. The product also blocks messages from unwanted or incorrect numbers, as well as SMS messages containing words or phrases entered by the user into a blacklist.
Regular updates of antivirus databases and module functions allow Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 to protect against the very latest malicious programs. Updates are performed automatically at intervals set by the user and are available via WAP/HTTP (GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, etc.) or via a PC during synchronization.
Kaspersky Mobile Security 7.0 can be installed on smartphones running Windows Mobile 5.0, 6.0 or Symbian version 9.x Series 60 3rd.
