Hello,

just wondering if anyone knows about Symantec releasing a full security
suite for WIndows Mobile platform, other than only the anti-virus part,
comprising a personal firewall and a data encryption product.

So far I only found Airscanner Mobile Bundle to inlcude all this.

TIA

You do realize that their --and anybody else's for that matter--
anti-virus package for Pocket PC is purely snake-oil, don't you?

Not really; although there are currently only a few viruses that can attack
a mobile device, PPC can and do act as vectors to transmit malware and
viruses to the host platform.

Except maybe encryption, but all other are useless on PocketPC.
anti-virus? i havent seen any virus for pocketpc.
firewall? Most ways of connection to internet already have firewall.
HotSpots, GPRS and other.
There is encyption in resco explorer and this software is more usefull.

I dont know any way to transmit any viruse from PPC to PC
And I know only one virus for PPC and even this one was made as experiment
and it gives notice before infection.
Anyway if something would happen I will restore from backup.
