F-Secure to partner with Toshiba to provide mobile security for smart devices

  • 13 February, 2008 14:07

<p>A trial version of the F-Secure Mobile Anti-virus solution will be included with Toshiba smart devices using the Windows Mobile platform. This makes it very easy for Toshiba’s customers to start using malware protection on their mobile device. As the security software is already preinstalled in the handset the user doesn’t have to spend extra time finding a suitable solution.</p>
<p>Corporate IT departments are increasingly viewing smart devices as computing devices and as such integral parts of their IT device fleet. Thus similar protection levels are necessary for smartphones as already are customary for PCs, especially as synchronising data between PC’s and Windows Mobile devices is standard routine for many business users. The co-operation with Toshiba on the Windows Mobile platform extends the distribution of F-Secure’s mobile solutions to cover an even larger part of the smartphone market.</p>
<p>"As the market adoption phase of mobile security solutions still is in its early stages, distribution co-operation with mobile device manufacturers is of key importance. Therefore partnering with a well-known brand like Toshiba, which is one of the leading handset manufacturers already in Japan, is a source of great delight for us", says Samu Konttinen, Vice President, Mobile Solutions Business Unit, F-Secure.</p>
<p>“As Toshiba wants to ensure a unique and safe mobile experience for its customers we place a lot of emphasis on essentials like security. This is important for us as an equipment manufacturer in order to differentiate and to partner with one of the most recognised mobile security vendors in the industry”, says Hiroyuki Goto, Technical Director, Toshiba Information Systems (UK) Ltd - Mobile Communications Division.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
