McAfee Mobile Security Software Available on New Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet
Protects Lenovo’s Android-based ThinkPad Tablet against device loss and theft, viruses and spyware and allows users to safely surf the Web
MARKHAM, Ontario – Jan. 16, 2012 – McAfee today announced that McAfee 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. This move extends McAfee’s ongoing collaboration with Lenovo to safeguard both the device and its stored information.
“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.”
“Today more companies and employees are using mobile technology devices – both at home and in the workplace, and we built our ThinkPad Tablet with this in mind,” said Tom Butler, director, ThinkPad Business Unit, Lenovo. “McAfee Mobile Security provides the comprehensive set of security features that users need to protect their personal information stored on tablet devices, as well as to provide safeguards for business data.”
McAfee® Mobile Security software is a powerful combination of McAfee® VirusScan® Mobile software, McAfee® WaveSecure™ software and McAfee® SiteAdvisor™ for Android software. The solution protects a mobile device if it’s lost or stolen; safeguards it 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.
