Re: anti virus

MHVishal : you are absolutely off-topic here....
anyway : the internet speed can be degraded by your antivirus. In my opinion, it's what separates good antiviruses and bad ones (apart from the frequency of definitions updates).
It also highly depends on the CPU you have on your computer.

Re: anti virus

tertius : there are officially no virus on BlackBerry devices, apart from malware that you can install on purpose.
if you want security, you can configure the firewall settings for every single application you have installed on your device.

Re: anti virus

Xandrex, the same thing was once said about Linux and Mac.  The threat exists, it's irresponsible to suggest otherwise.   The research is being done.  The malware is being developed.  There are anti-virus/malware solutions available for BlackBerry.  I work for one of those companies.  While it would be inappropriate for me to recommend that company on this forum, just know that the threat exists and we're on top of it.  Do the research to protect your data.

Re: anti virus

Orron112 : thank you for working on BlackBerry devices security. Don't be ashamed of your company, everybody has the right to tell what they do for a living.
Then we can look at the PR of your company and see if they talk real stuff. :smileywink:
