McAfee, a security technology provider, has launched solutions for mobile phones and tablet computers – named as McAfee Mobile Security and McAfee WaveSecure Tablet Edition.
McAfee Mobile Security software, available for both smartphones and tablets, provides a comprehensive mobile security solution by combining three McAfee mobile security products: WaveSecure, VirusScan Mobile and SiteAdvisor for Android.
These products will protect data and privacy in the event of loss or theft, gives protection against viruses and spyware targeting mobile devices, as well as protects the devices from Web based threats, such as phishing sites that probe for personal and sensitive information.
Users of these solutions will be able to back-up and restore data to help protect sensitive information and irreplaceable photos. Even if the device goes missing, users can back up their data.
One can also remotely lock the device to protect against misuse as well as safeguarding personal data. The security system also triggers an audible alarm to help users find the device or disrupt a thief, and or pop-up a notification with instructions for returning the device.
You can also remotely remove data from a lost or stolen device via the McAfee Web portal, mobile Web portal or via a SMS message from a buddy device. Apart from this there is real-time anti-malware protection against viruses, worms and spyware, Trojan horses and battery sapping malware.
“With device growth eclipsing PCs, consumers need tools to not only protect their personal information, but also to provide safeguards for business data should they decide to use that device for work,” said Todd Gebhart, executive vice president and general manager of consumer, small business and mobile, McAfee.
McAfee Mobile Security and WaveSecure software are available multiple languages, but for us only English is useful (no Indian language). McAfee Mobile Security software is currently available as free app on Android market.
