Norton & Symantec Coming to a Windows Mobile Phone Near You

According to PC World, Norton will begin selling two smartphone security suites for devices running Windows Mobile on May 29. Norton Mobile Security for Smartphones is intended for the average consumer and Symantec Mobile Security 5.0 is designed for enterprise users. Included will be antivirus, antispam, firewall and data encryption capabilities. Unfortunately, a VPN (virtual private network) component will be sold separately. If there is one thing that I took away from Andrew Seybold's Wireless Data University at CTIA Wireless 2007, it is the growing importance of having VPN on your mobile device.

Symantec currently offers free trialware downloads of their Symantec Mobile Security products here. You may want to check the site May 29 to see if they offer a trialware version of these latest products.
