SMobile launches security suite for Apple's iPhone

Software developer SMobile Systems releases first security applications for Apple iPhone

Security solution developer SMobile Systems has announced the first security solution for Apple's iPhone.

The company has ported its Security Shield application suite to the iPhone, using the recently released Apple Software Developer Kit (SDK). Security Shield includes integrated anti-virus, anti-spam and firewall functions, and has been tested by companies such as Nokia, Samsung and AT&T, the iPhone carrier in the US.

Rick Roscitt, chairman and chief executive officer of SMobile Systems said: "iPhone users are browsing the Internet, downloading applications and conducting transactions on their device. The popularity and buzz surrounding the iPhone has made it a rich target for hackers or others intent on gaining notoriety, or stealing personal, business, health or other critical data stored on these devices.

"Having the proper security protections available is key to ensuring that each and every iPhone owner can take full advantage of this device, without having to worry about issues like identity theft," he added.

SMobile Systems provides a range of security solutions for mobile, and was first to launch security for the Google Android platform.
