Default Mobile security product for 9800 Torch

Please Login to Remove!

I recently upgraded to the 9800 Torch from a Nokia 6650 Fold after the latter broke down on me and I was elegible for an inexpensive upgrade from AT&T. I had been using a mobile security product with the Nokia called SMobile Security Shield, which worked very well me for me and has received excellent reviews. Although they said they work with Blackberrys, after I had upgraded to the 9800 Torch I was told that they do not work with this latest Blackberry.

Are there are any other mobile security products which work with my cell-phone. I am most interested in Firewall and real-time protection, although I also want good anti-virus product.

When I look for reviews of mobile security products very few of them appear to work with Blackberrys ( or Androids for that matter ). The only other ones I have found are Bullguard, which SMobile told me is just a rebranded version of their product, and something called Lookout Premium.

Are there other good mobile security products for my Bolackberry ?
Do I need one or does the Blackberry already come with Firewall, real-time protection, and anti-virus ?

I am new to Blackberrys but I like the look/feel of the 9800 Torch and have had it for a very short time. My only initial disappointment was lack of a user's guide with the product, but I have downloaded one from online and will have to read it on my computer at leisure.

There are no viruses for BlackBerrys and no specific antivirus software for them.
There is a firewall built in and highly customizable.
For security RIM just released BlackBerry Protect. Looks pretty comprehensive.
