Sophos unveils security for Windows Mobile
Sophos is unveiling software for securing PDAs and smartphones running Microsoft's Windows Mobile software.
Sophos Mobile Security, available for sale today, is designed to provide real-time protection for Windows Mobile 5.0 based devices against viruses and spyware threats. It's also set up to enable IT administrators to implement and lock down security policies for the devices, like PDAs and smartphones. Microsoft is expect to issue a new version of Windows Mobile, version 6.0, soon.
In a recent Sophos Web poll, 81 percent of IT administrators said they were worried that malware and spyware targeting mobile devices will become a significant threat in the future. However, 64 percent also said they currently have no system in place to secure company mobile devices.
