How can I protect my Pocket PC from attackers in hot spots?

How can I protect my Pocket PC from attackers in hot spot areas? Currently I use antivirus & VPN client, is it enough?
Security is best when it is implemented in layers. TechRepublic reports that 27% of corporations report having their handheld devices hacked during the last year. Some of these attacks are from physical access and lack of a password while others occurred in hot spots. Bluefiresecurity.com and others have developed firewalls that will run on handhelds.
