Submission + - Kaspersky: Apple blocking iPhone security software (

Barence writes: Speaking exclusively to PC Pro, Eugene Kaspersky has claimed Apple has repeatedly refused to deliver the software development kit (SDK) necessary to design security software for the phone. "We have been in contact for two years with Apple to develop our anti-theft software, [but] still we do not have permission," said Kaspersky. Although he admits the risk of viruses infecting the iPhone is "almost zero", he claims that securing the data on the handset is critical, especially as iPhones are increasingly being used for business purposes. "I don't want to say Apple's is the wrong way of behaving, or the right way," Kaspersky added. "It's just a corporate culture — it wants to control everything".
