Kaspersky ships antivirus tool for cell phones
Kaspersky is the latest security firm to offer a product for mobile devices. Others, including F-Secure, Symantec, Trend Micro and McAfee, also have products out. While threats to mobile devices have been largely theoretical, makers of security software are eager to get their products onto handsets because it is a huge potential market. About 812 million mobile handsets--such as cell phones and smart phones--were sold in 2005, according to market researcher Gartner. That compares with an estimated 219 million PCs in the same period.
