Antony Savvas

F-Secure has added data protection technology to its mobile security software system to protect information held on stolen smartphones.

F-Secure said the updated software includes "easy remote locking and wiping of confidential data" if the phone is lost or stolen.

"Smartphones have become an integral part of corporate networks through common usage of virtual private networks and push-email solutions. They need to be secured as part of the company's IT infrastructure," said F-Secure.

The locking and data wiping technology is part of the new F-Secure Mobile Security 5 system, which already protects devices against mobile viruses.
