McAfee Mobile Security 2.0 Combines New Security Features


McAfee today announced the next generation of McAfee Mobile Security software, providing smartphone and tablet owners with more controls to preserve their privacy and protection against financial fraud, identity theft and viruses.

Available now, McAfee Mobile Security 2.0 supports Google Android-based smartphones and tablets, including those running on Intel architecture as well as BlackBerry and Symbian smartphones. New features include McAfee App Alert, which provides important information about what apps are doing with users? personal information. Call and SMS filtering block unwanted numbers and spam texts. The app is also powered by the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence network, which constantly analyzes global threat data to identify and quickly block new threats with over-the-air app updates.

McAfee Mobile Security software provides:

- Anti-virus, Anti-spyware and Anti-phishing Protection: Scans for malicious code from files, memory cards, applications, Internet downloads and text messages

- Protection from Potentially Unwanted Programs: McAfee is the first to protect users from applications that include commercial spyware, adware and dialers, despite the fact that these programs may have been downloaded in conjunction with a program that the user wants

- Web Protection: McAfee SiteAdvisor protects against Web threats by blocking risky links within SMS, email and social networking sites. It also safeguards against potential phishing sites, browser exploits and malicious quick response (QR) codes.

- Anti-theft Protection:

Device Lock: Prevents misuse of the user?s phone and personal data by remotely locking all data, including the data on the memory (SIM) card, and displaying a "contact me" message on the device
Remotely Wipe Data: Protects the user?s privacy by remotely deleting the data on the phone and removable memory card. It can also back up data before the remote wipe to prevent the loss of data on the device.
Backup and Restore Data: Preserves irreplaceable personal information on demand, on a schedule, or before wiping a missing smartphone, then restores information to the new device
Locate and Track: Helps users to recover their smartphone if it is lost or stolen. Users can view the device?s location on a map, send an SMS to prompt its return, and use a remote alarm to make it "scream"

- App Protection: McAfee App Alert for Android helps users keep private data private by interpreting how apps are accessing and possibly transmitting personal data

- Call and SMS Filtering: Easily filters out spammers, incorrect numbers and unwanted texts

- Online Management: The McAfee Web portal lets users quickly execute needed security tasks, such as backup, restore, locate, and remote lock and wipe

- Uninstall Protection: Prevents a thief or another user from bypassing their McAfee mobile protection

McAfee Mobile Security 2.0 costs $29.99 USD for new subscribers and existing McAfee Mobile Security subscribers can download the updated software for free.
