Trend Micro's new software for Symbian

Security vendor Trend Micro will release a new version of its mobile security software for Nokia smartphones next month. It will include a built-in firewall and improved malware detection, the company announced on Thursday at the Cebit show in Hanover, Germany.

The product, Trend Micro Mobile Security 3.0 for Symbian S60 3rd Edition, is compatible with all Nokia E-series devices and many N-series ones. The new software is aimed at business customers whose employees travel and use their devices with different mobile operators and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, Trend Micro says.

Security vendors are predicting a rise in the number of hacking attacks directed at mobile devices as more are used. Hackers have written malicious software for some mobile OSes, but their impact has been minor compared to attacks on desktop computers.

Trend Micro's version of the software for Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5.0 OS has been available since November. The cost is the same as the Windows version, starting at US$34.95 per device, the company says.
