Hi Windows Phone does not allow antivirus solution, only the old Windows Mobile did.

 

So currently Windows Phone is not supported by any antivirus solutions.

Appreciate the reply rekun,Thank you.

It leaves me with a few more questions.

Is windows providing a secure platform and am I risking security on other devices in this "SYNC or BE SYNCED" lifestyle

Windows phone is a closed platform. This means you cannot install apps from third-parties and all apps in the Windows store are scanned by Microsoft. So you should be quite secure.

iOS uses the same approach and there are only few known malware samples for iOS. This is also one reason for ESET not to develop a security product for these platforms - it would not make much sense.
