Trend Micro secures mobiles

Antivirus player Trend Micro is gearing up to launch Trend Micro Mobile Security (TMMS) version 2.0, claiming enhanced antivirus and SMS anti-spam protection for data-centric wireless mobile devices such as Smartphones.

It’s not available yet – the company said it will be available for testing in Q2 and hit volume deployments in Q3.

TMMS 2.0 provides increased device support with the addition of Symbian OS v7.0 with the Series 60 Platform – for example the Nokia 6600 and 7610. Pattern files can be provided remotely, using the same method as mobile phone provider software upgrades, enabling rapid updates as new threats emerge.

The company pointed out that industry analysts have predicted that mobile threats will continue to increase. Already in 2005 a number of new mobile malware have been identified, including the Vlasco family, which uses Bluetooth to propagate; and Comwar, which uses Bluetooth or MMS to propagate.

Management and provisioning is enabled through the TMMS Mobile Management Console, permitting mobile operators and enterprises to remotely equip, update and control the protection on client devices.

The new software supports various operating system configurations, including Microsoft Windows Mobile and Symbian OS v 7.0.
