Pointsec Mobile Technologies has a new mobile security solution--Pointsec for Symbian OS. The company already has security solutions for Windows-based computers. Pocket PC and Palm OS and the Symbian one completes its protection for all leading mobile platforms. If a Symbian OS device is stolen or lost, the information is normally fully accessible, says Pointsec. This product is an encryption application for stored information that provides the strongest available protection for Symbian OS devices. Using on-the fly, user-transparent encryption, it automatically encrypts all files before they are stored on a device and automatically decrypts the files again when they are opened, without any need for user intervention.
