New Delhi: F-Secure Corporationis partnering with Toshiba Information Systems

- Mobile Communications Division, to provide F-Secure Mobile Anti-virus for

Toshiba's Windows Mobile smart devices throughout Europe.

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. 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.

"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 Toshiba is a source of great

delight for us", says Samu Konttinen, VP, Mobile Solutions Business Unit,


"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 - Mobile

Communications Division.
