     "Nokia strongly believes that security is a key enabler for business

 capabilities of the real-time enterprise, but it also creates new security and
 management challenges," said Stephen Drake, program manager for IDC's Mobile
 Infrastructure Software service.  "Organizations must begin to address both

 protection on mobile devices to safeguard confidential information from
 getting into wrong hands via loss or theft of a mobile device."
     "We are delighted to cooperate with Nokia to be able to extend our mobile
 data protection solutions to also include the Nokia product range," said Peter
 Larsson, President and CEO for Pointsec.  "Pointsec for Symbian offers not
