HELSINKI -- As the mobile malware scene becomes ever more complex and sophisticated, F-Secure and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), the world’s specialist in mobile networks, are teaming up to provide innovative new solutions to protect consumers’ privacy and to keep mobile devices clean from malware incidents. The partnership combines both companies’ years of expertise to address the rapidly developing mobile malware era.

With declining PC sales, figures show that the malware war will increasingly be fought on the mobile front. The number of new mobile malware threats detected continues to grow by at least 25% every quarter.* And last year, for the first time, Android malware was discovered outside app stores, in the form of malvertising and drive-by downloads. Mobile botnets and premium SMS-sending scams attempt to take advantage of consumers.

Meanwhile, consumers expect more security from their Internet service providers. According to an F-Secure survey,** 54% of people are concerned about whether they are safe online when browsing from their mobile phone. And 69% of people think it is the responsibility of their communications or Internet service provider to keep their digital life safe. This view will only increase with the global move towards cloud, as services are moved from the device to the cloud and network level.

“NSN strongly believes that best-in-class security can be achieved only by combining the forces of market leading experts. NSN and F-Secure are establishing a partnership to protect mobile users from continuously increasing security threats,” says Thorsten Robrecht, Vice President, Portfolio Management at Nokia Solutions and Networks.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
