F-Secure Launches Anti-theft Software

F-Secure has released its F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile software, designed for Symbian and Windows Mobile Smartphones. The software supports S60 5th and 3rd Edition, Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PCand for Smartphone, and Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Standard.
The software incorporates three useful security features to ensure that valuable personal and confidential information cannot be accessed if the phone is lost or stolen. Remote Lock protects confidential information quickly and easily by locking the device with a single SMS message; Remote wipe: erases all the data on the phone with a single SMS message; and a theft-control feature kicks in if someone changes the SIM card. IN this scenario, the devicve is locked and the user is informed of the new number
You carry your Smartphone with you whereever you go, which means it can be particularly prone to being lost or stolen, says Arnoud de Vaal, a Director at F-Secures Mobile Business Unit. Nowadays, our mobiles contain a great deal of personal and confidential data that need protection. F-Secures standalone anti-theft software provides an easy and affordable way to make sure this information is not misused by anyone.

In addition, it is easy to upgrade to the all-in-one security solution, F-Secure Mobile Security, by activating the inbuilt automatic upgrade system.
