Trend: Mobile viruses not a threat until 2007

Researcher Gartner claims that mobile viruses and worms will not post a significant threat to more than 30 percent of mobile devices until the end of 2007. The researcher advises enterprises not to focus their immediate wireless security efforts on device-based solutions. Gartner also predicts that wireless carriers will offer sufficient malicious software filtering by the end of 2006. The wireless industry, however, should work to avoid the mistakes of the PC market and ensure that malware protection services are built into networks as opposed to devices.
