Kaspersky Mobile Security

Kaspersky Lab have developed an anti-theft system for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile 5.0 or 6.0, aimed at protecting your private information, block malicious attacks, and guard against SMS spam.

With the anti-theft protection, you can block your smartphone or delete files, contacts, messages, and all of this remotely. In the event of a loss, you can send an SMS to block any further access to you smartphone until a pre-set password is entered. If you want to clear all your data, you send a different kind of SMS. Now if the thief will replace your original SMS Card with its own, the "SIM Watch" will prevent access to you data without the original SIM. Of course, if he is interested in your phone more than in your data, nothing matters anymore. Below is an image showing the anti-theft option:

With anti-malware protection, you can protect against intrusive SMS that contain adware; in this regard, SMS received from unwanted addresses, or containing inappropriate content are blocked. There is a blacklist where you can add phone numbers or unwanted text. MMS filtering is only supported on Symbian phones. Below is an image with the anti-spam option:
