By: Ron Hel-Or

As the popularity of PDA's continues to grow, so unfortunately does the threat of viruses, spyware and other malicious software. In previous years we were all under the impression that the virus threat is irrelevant to the PDA world, and that was true than. But this situation is quickly changing as PDA's have become much more popular and the virus developers are tempted to invade this new arena. That is why it is so important to use one of the many antivirus PDA software packages on the market. A good antivirus PDA software program will help protect your PDA and the valuable, hard worked information it contains from harm.

Antivirus PDA packages are widely available from all of the major antivirus software companies. Companies like Symantec, McAfee and Computer Associates all make antivirus software designed to protect PDA's.

Before deciding on an antivirus software package for your PDA, it is important to know what type of operating system your PDA uses. The most popular Windows operating systems for PDA'sare the Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, and the Windows CE. But different models of PDA will run on different operating systems. Not all PDA's use Windows as their operating system (like the Palm One which uses the Palm OS). So be sure you know what operating system you will need to protect.

So, what are the main options that you have regarding a good PDA anti virus? Here are some of the most popular options:

1.Kaspersky Security for PDA- This unique combination of tools is protecting data stored on PDA's. The software provides full-scale protection of personal data stored on PDA computers running the most popular operating systems – Windows CE and Palm OS, and also provides full control over access
2.McAffe – Featuring online virus scanning for PDA's and hand-held devices, subscription-based services include virus alerting and security news for the Palm.
3.PC-cillin – Antivirus software for desktop PCs, PC-cillin also provides mobile users the extra protection needed to stay virus-free on the road, including Wi-Fi connection security and PDA synchronization protection.

These are just a few examples for quality anti virus protection packages for a PDA.

You may also want to get recommendations from the manufacturer of your PDA as well. Each manufacturer may recommend a different type of antivirus software. That is because different software packages will work better with different types of PDA's.

The antivirus software for PDA's are available as downloads directly from the companies that make them. Antivirus software packages can also be purchased from computer retailers and electronics stores.

No matter where you purchase your antivirus software, having a good strong antivirus package is absolutely vital for any PDA owner
