management, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corporation. "Your phone
may not just be your phone -- it may be your wallet, identity card,
address book and family photo album. As we use our phones in new
ways, we're also putting sensitive information at risk if the device
gets lost or stolen. With the latest version of Norton Mobile
Security, we are making it simple for people to stay protected on
whichever device they choose."
