    we've got a few PDAs for E-Portal on test, and I have my Ipaq phone on wifi as well..

    Security is just WPA, nothing on the machines..AV is no as well. They're only going to be used for mobile exchange/registers though.

    As PDAs become more popular and functional, they will surely become the target of an increasing number of new viruses.
    I know that AV companies provide pda versions of their software.
