Nokia collaborates with Securitas for mobile security services

Nokia announced today that it has teamed-up with Securitas, a Sweden based company, in order to bring security services to its S60 GPS-enabled handsets.

Leveraging on the fact that more and more phones have built-in GPS, Nokia and Securitas will implement a suit of services called Securitas Safe-2-Go.

This is comprised of four sub-services that will allow users to “get help in an exposed situation”, as well as to benefit from “increased security through information regarding the location of friends and family.”

 

The four components of Securitas Safe-2-Go are:

  • Assist, which lets you connect to Securitas alarm central with just the touch of a button
  • Find, which can tell you the current position of a friend
  • Zone, for receiving text messages when someone comes into or leaves from a predefined area   
  • Friends, which provides an overview of where all your friends are located at a given moment.

Mobile users in Sweden will be the first to try Securitas Safe-2-Go, as the service will be released there, by mid-2009. After that, other European countries will follow.
