Centralised mobile security control for enterprises.

Trend Micro : 05 November, 2007  (New Product)
Fully data protection for mobile devices with centralised management from Trend Micro's Mobile Security 5.0.
Trend Micro has announced the latest version of its mobile device security solution, available to the market in December 2007. The release of Trend Micro Mobile Security (TMMS) 5.0, girded with data encryption and authentication, mitigates mobile security challenges such as security breaches and data leakage while allowing enterprise administrators to manage security for handheld devices from a single console.

Mobile devices have become small, powerful computers with large data storage capacities and growing network bandwidth. A remote and mobile workforce utilising mobile applications on their handhelds are at risk for losing confidential and sensitive information critical to their companies. Mobile applications such as push email, customer relationship management, and field service automation boost convenience and productivity, but make data vulnerable. Enterprises need to ensure that both data and mobile devices are secure and protected.

TMMS 5.0 features new data encryption and authentication capabilities: If a mobile device is lost or stolen, the business-critical data contained in it is encrypted unless it is unlocked with a password. Data on devices that do not comply with policies can be wiped out by administrators. The anti-malware features block viruses, worms, Trojans and SMS text message spam. Built-in firewall and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) protects against hackers, intrusions and denial-of-service attacks - all potential threats to mobile devices.

"Businesses are dispatching workers outside the corporate structure, and are moving them through a variety of wireless networks. Workers are going through airports, hotels, restaurants, and homes to do their jobs," said Thomas Miller, global vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Business Unit. "Mobile devices that contain confidential data are not only at risk for viruses, worms, Trojans and spam, they're also at risk for theft or accidental loss. Trend Micro Mobile Security 5.0 provides total mobile protection through a single, compact application."

TMMS 5.0 uses the OfficeScan Client/Server Edition (OSCE) 8.0 console which also manages medium business and enterprise PC and server security. By installing TMMS 5.0 onto their OSCE 8.0 console, existing customers use a single console to manage mobile devices, desktop PCs and enterprise servers. Customers not presently using OSCE 8.0 receive an OSCE 8.0 console license with their TMMS 5.0 purchase.

Trend Micro Mobile Security 5.0 supports multiple leading platforms such as Windows Mobile 5.0 (Smartphone.) Windows Mobile 6.0 (Standard Edition); Windows Mobile 5.0 (PocketPC.) Windows Mobile 6.0 (Classic and Professional); and Symbian S60/3rd Edition (Nokia E-Series.)
