Nokia to sell security appliances business

HELSINKI, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The world's top cellphone maker Nokia NOK1V.HE said on Monday it would focus its services development on consumers rather than businesses.

Nokia said it was in advanced talks to sell its security appliances business to a financial investor, while it would halt development and marketing of its “behind-the-firewall” corporate software.

The measures will affect in total around 700 staff, it said. (Reporting by Tarmo Virki)
