Anti-Virus for Windows Phone 8

When can we expect an Anti-Virus software for Windows Phone 8? Or is it already out there somewhere?

Hi Jaro,

 

We have Safe Browser available from Windows Store.

Currently we feel that the traditional Anti-virus is not bringing additional value to Windows Phone 8 devices due to Secure Boot, built-in sandboxing  and other security techniques used in Windows Phone 8 by default.

 

We do keep an eye on a threat landscape in case something emerges.

Best Regards

-Jake
