F-Secure and SmartTrust on Monday announced a partnership designed to deliver anti-virus protections to mobile devices. The companies plan to incorporate F-Secure’s anti-virus software into SmartTrust’s mobile security platform, enabling mobile operators to manage anti-virus software over the air.
The new partnership will allow mobile companies to scan for virus on-the-fly and deliver anti-virus software to the end-users. Using the mobile security platform, users will be able to receive anti-virus updates and transfer subscriptions between mobile devices.
F-Secure believe that mobile devices will eventually become the next target of computer hackers and it just a matter of time.
