News is slowly picking up for the new year (thankfully). Appears as though security woes are slowly being scooped up by caring product developers. SMobile Systems, you know, the folks who are delivering the industry’s most “comprehensive, cross-platform mobile security solution for enterprises, wireless carriers, and device manufacturers” have rolled out a new anti-virus program – this one’s for the Pearl. “VirusGuard” is currently the only BlackBerry anti-virus software on the market.
“VirusGuard stops malware and other threats at the handset — so users can continue to utilize and enjoy the full functionality of their BlackBerry devices. In contrast, security measures instituted at the corporate network level typically require IT administrators to enforce strict device capability limitations, such as prohibiting the downloading of third-party applications onto the device. This potentially blocks users’ access to key applications that would otherwise improve job performance and increase productivity.”
