Trend Micro has announced the latest version of its enterprise mobile device security platform Mobile Security 5.0.
The new software, which will launch in December, has new data encryption and authentication capabilities. If a device is lost or stolen, data on the phone is encrypted unless it is unlocked with a password. And data on devices that do not comply with policies can be wiped out by administrators, Trend Micro said.
Mobile Security 5.0 also has new anti-malware features that block viruses, worms, Trojans and SMS text message spam. It also boasts built-in firewall and an intrusion detection system that Trend Mobile said protects against hackers, intrusions and denial-of-service attacks.
Pricing for the basic version of the software starts at $35 per device while the Advanced edition starts at $70 per device. Mobile Security 5.0 Standard and Advanced for Windows Mobile 5 and 6, as well as for Symbian/S60 third edition, which is the Nokia E-Series, will be available in mid-December, while the Advanced for Symbian/S60 third edition version will ship in the first half of 2008.
