Security protection for Symbian devices from AVG

AVG UK And Ireland : 12 June, 2007  (New Product)
Free beta version of mobile security suite for Symbian UIQ 3.0 mobile phones available for download from the AVG web site.
AVG UK & Ireland has announced the latest addition to its growing security products portfolio, AVG Mobile Security. AVG Mobile Security is currently in the BETA testing stage, and available for free download from the AVG web site with a registration to a BETA portal. The system protects Symbian UIQ 3.0 platform mobile phones, compatible with Sony Ericsson P990i, M600i and W950i devices.

The new AVG Mobile Security features SMS anti-spam and anti-virus. It also includes advanced functions such as comprehensive system settings for scan scheduling and creating "whitelists" enabling users to configure AVG Mobile Security to their needs.

The estimated number of mobile viruses and threats to mobile phones today is about 350 and continues to rise. According to recently published studies, the number of virus attacks on mobile phones rose five-fold within the last year, affecting customers of more than 80 per cent of mobile operators worldwide. Thousands of mobile phones have been targets of successful attacks, resulting in disabled phones or high bills caused by unwanted messages and calls.

"As our first product for mobile phones, the new AVG Mobile Security platform was designed to help users keep their mobile communications secure at all times," explains Larry Bridwell, Global Security Strategist at GRISOFT. "Hackers are now finding ways to access mobile phone data and we want to ensure that our users stay protected. We look forward to building upon this product and extending AVG's comprehensive and unobtrusive security to protect as many mobile phones as possible."

The new user group will be attached to a forum that will be a portal for users to share their experiences testing the software and gain useful advice and insight from other users. AVG Mobile Security is continuously undergoing updates through a professional distribution system of more than 10,000 high-speed servers worldwide, allowing rapid reaction to emerging threats.

Grisoft continues to offer a full security software portfolio to protect computers. The latest editions of AVG Internet Security and AVG Anti-Virus with Anti-Spyware are available online and through various retailers nationwide.
