Nokia Ovi Store Lays Out Security Policy for Third-Party Apps

Nokia opened the Ovi Store today, offering mobile applications, games and other tools. Some of the apps available through the Ovi Store are developed by third-parties, and Nokia wants to ensure those apps are secure enough for primetime before users download them.

Nokia officially put the welcome mat at the door of its Ovi Store today, stocking its virtual shelves with mobile applications, games, productivity tools and more for dozens of models of Nokia phones.

Just like in the Apple App Store, some of those applications are developed by third-parties, making the task of ensuring the security of those applications important. In the case of Nokia, officials said they have put a review process in place to make sure the apps customers are getting are up to snuff.
