June 23, 2008 - Sybase iAnywhere expanded its mobile security portfolio to include handheld antivirus and firewall capabilities.


Sybase Information Anywhere Suite’s Afaria management and security solution will be enhanced with antivirus and firewall technology, addressing growing concern over increase in malware, viruses, hackers and spam targeting handheld devices.


The new security components, combined with Afaria’s mobile device authentication and encryption technology, provide complete protection for Windows Mobile, Symbian and Blackberry mobile devices from viruses, data compromise, hackers and the effects of mobile device loss or theft.


“Sybase iAnywhere is responding to customer demand for broader security capabilities from a single, strategic mobility vendor,” said Joe Owen, vice president of engineering for Sybase iAnywhere. “Customers benefit from being able to manage all security policies from a single console, and can be assured of interoperability among the security technologies on their workers’ handheld devices.”


New Sybase iAnywhere features include:


  • Comprehensive antivirus protection with automatic signature file updates,
  • Real-time virus detection on all files,
  • IP based firewall protection and
  • SMS and call filtering.
