F-Secure has released Anti-theft for Mobile product and Mobile Security for the Andriod platform, which includes the browsing protection feature that identifies which websites are safe to enter and which should be avoided.
The company claims that F-Secure’s anti-theft for mobile protects confidential data and safeguards privacy in the unfortunate event that the smartphone is lost or stolen.
According to F-Secure, the Anti-Theft for Mobile includes remote lock, theft control and remote wipe functionalities. The remote lock can be used to lock the device with a single SMS message and the theft control feature activates when the simcard is changed by locking the phone and sends the new sim information to the owner. It is also possible to erase all the data on the phone with remote wipe by sending an SMS.
Patrik Sallner, vice president of F-Secure’s Mobile Business Unit, said: F-Secure has been protecting mobile devices for a full decade and we are proud to introduce our first products for the fast-growing Android platform. Our anti-theft for mobile adds a valuable level of extra security for smartphone users and can also be easily upgraded to include more security features, including browsing protection.
