Looking for Recommended Security Packages for PB (and phone)

Hello everyone,

 

I am hoping others have this same question possibly and haven't asked it too much (I tried to use the search method to look before I posted)...

 

Anyways, I have recently purchased a playbook and I really like it.  I will soon be developing for it using Adobe AIR (plus eclipse possibly) because I really like it's features and it doesn't feel like it was made for a person who can't handle real technology (like an ip...) ... but I digress. 

 

Back to my question: I am wondering if anyone here can suggest any good aftermarket security software for my playbook (besides the PB password lock).  I realize the PB has some very strong inherent security built in but do people typically get any other software?  If it's not too much trouble, could you let me know if you would use anything like that on a somewhat older torch (like one that was bought on the initial release date)?

 

I look forward to people's opinion and I thank everyone in advance.

Re: Looking for Recommended Security Packages for PB (and phone)

although the QNX OS is imune to virus attacks, you can have a virus infected file on it that windows could be affected by when you connect it to a PC.

 

so scanning the playbook with a PC is a good idea if you share files on it often like a USB drive
