    Trend Micro has a good suite for Mobile Security, esp. for Enterprise which integrates with their OfficeScan products.
    See: http://us.trendmicro.com/us/products/mobile-security/index.html

    Ver. 5.0 and onwards are WinMo 6.0 compatible.
    I also beta tested Trend Micro 2009 Pro beta. It included Trend Micro Mobile Security for free.

    I've installed Kaspersky Mobile Security on my HTC Touch Pro this morning. As well as AV & SMS blocking, there's some nice anti-theft features too.

    Is the OP also trying this product?

    Just for my safety, it's my wife's PDA :D , I have sent a email to the sales deparments of F-Secure, Trend Micro and Kaspersky, with the specific question if there product works with my wife's PDA.

    F-Secure, at this moment was the only one to respond (positive), so over the weekend I am gone try them first.

    If you want a quick reply re Kaspersky, you can PM the lead developer (Viktor) on the KL forum. He's around there pretty much every day... Or I can ask him for you if you like

    I have just send him a PM. Thanks ;)

    At this moment, even after the email from the sales department, I'm not sure if F-Secure will work. Looking at the supported devices, there is no mention of the specific device. http://mobile.f-secure.com/devices/index.html It's a little bit confusing for me.


    Edit: Kaspersky Mobil 6 should do the trick.. :thumb: Very nice support :thumb:

    Just a note about my recommendation for this product. I tried this last week & it broke my Internet access. I defiantly do not recommend using Kaspersky.

    Doesn't mean it won't work for the gentleman in this thread.... you seem to have had problems with a lot of Kaspersky products recently, maybe conversing with tech support or the forum may have shed some more light on what the problem(s) were and how to remedy them.

    Indeed, although feedback from other users' experiences is surely useful? I failed to get any urgent assistance despite having just signed up as a Kaspersky reseller.

    My server system is essential to me as is my push email to my smartphone. I cannot be without these systems for any more than a day.

    I posted an urgent message regarding my server on the Kaspersky forums the moment I got the problems. A week later, the thread has yet to receive a response. I posted my issue about KMS later in a later separate message.

    Breaking essential systems is not an option that I like to take either for myself or my customers.

    I'm aiming to do a hard reset of my smartphone device this weekend to get rid of the remnants of Kaspersky Mobile Security.

    I'm still having problems getting internet access through my smartphone, although it was perfect before installing KMS. Now, I can only get Internet access if I go into connection settings & run through the connection setup each time. The connection settings are correct, but it seems to need me to rewrite the file each time to get a connection.

    At this moment (Mrs De Hollander :D ) is trying Norton for 15 days

    I have tried to download a trial version (V3) form this link
    http://us.trendmicro.com/us/products/mobile-security/index.html. But, no luck....HTTP 404. :(

    I'm gone give Kaspersky a try, after the trial periode of Norton

    F-secure is off , because I'm still a little bit confuse it's works :doubt:


    Thank you for the link :thumb: , but I don't wanna try a beta version.


    Sorry to hear that, I will keep this in mind.:thumb:

    I tried a few, and the only one I could get to work correctly was Norton Smartphone. I have not tried the new ESET product.

    Good luck!
