Trend Micro, Inc., a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced Trend Micro Mobile Security will provide enhanced antivirus and SMS anti-spam protection for data-centric wireless mobile devices running on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0.

“Today’s smart phones and wireless handhelds are becoming mini computers that potentially have security risks similar to other computers,” said Raimund Genes, president of European Operations for Trend Micro, who is also responsible for mobile security products globally.  “As the network perimeter expands to encompass such devices, organizations and operators should consider appropriate security measures for protecting their users’ devices.

“Trend Micro Mobile Security brings added value to the Windows Mobile software by providing additional security for our mobile device users,” said Chris Hill, group product manager for the Mobile and Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. “The market for mobile devices is growing, and with it the need for security is increasing.

According to a 2003 study by IDC, the mobile security market will grow from $161 million in 2005 to more than $992 million in 2008.
