McAfee today announced that its Mobile Security software will be preloaded on Lenovo’s Android-based ThinkPad tablet for business users. McAfee Mobile Security software will be available as a 30-day trial.
“The tremendous popularity of mobile devices and their subsequent adoption in the workplace means IT organizations must worry about data-compromising malware as well as the danger of lost and stolen devices,” said John Thode, executive vice president and general manager, consumer, small business and mobile, McAfee.
“As these devices store increasing amounts of personal and corporate data, they need to be secured to avoid potentially damaging data breaches, network intrusions or hacker attacks,” added John Thode.
McAfee Mobile Security software protects mobile devices if it’s lost or stolen; safeguards against mobile viruses and spyware; and allows users to safely surf the Web. Users can recover lost devices with alarm and location tracking, prevent misuse with remote lock and wipe and preserve important memories and personal data with remote backup and restore options. At the same time, McAfee Mobile Security protects against the risk of malware that originates via email, instant messaging and Internet downloads.
