Probably About Time: Symantec Launches Mobile Security for Android
Symantec certainly thinks so, as the company announced additions to its existing enterprise mobile security portfolio with Symantec Mobile Security for Android. The new feature is designed to blend with Symantec Mobile Security and uses antivirus technology, a firewall, and SMS antispam to keep devices safe, and IT heads can manage security on devices centrally.
In the enterprise these days, BYOD reigns supreme, which makes employees happy but drives security teams nuts--especially as more communications and productivity take place on mobile devices. Some additional security capabilities couldn’t hurt.
