With new configuration management capabilities using Symantec Client Security with the Symantec System Center console, IT organizations can improve their overall corporate security posture with greater control over securing wireless devices accessing sensitive company data.
Symantec AntiVirus for Handhelds Corporate Edition 3.5 enables secure mobile computing through on-device, real-time scanning and alerting of potential security threats. Flexible on-demand, scheduled and automatic scan options provide continuous, up-to-date virus definitions via Wireless LiveUpdate for virus removal, repair and the deleting of infected files. The 3.5 version also enables customers using Symantec Client Security deployed with the Symantec System Center console to easily install a plug-in to manage configurations and policy enforcement over mobile devices. Additionally, support is now available for all Windows Mobile platforms, with the exception of Windows Smartphone, in addition to all PocketPC and Palm OS platforms.
"Wireless technology has changed the way we conduct business, offering mobile workers constant access to business-critical applications and data," said Sarah Hicks, vice president of mobile and wireless solutions, Symantec Corporation. "While this flexibility expands productivity, it introduces complexity and security risk as wireless devices become a new target for hackers looking to infiltrate a corporate network. Our award winning virus protection offers a centralized management console to lock down this new attack vector to ensure enterprise-wide security."
Symantec AntiVirus for Handhelds Corporate Edition 3.5 is available now as a license to enterprise customers.
