McAfee Partners with NEC to Secure the Android Platform in Japan

Posted by at 12:19 pm on August 23, 2011

McAfee today announced that NEC Corporation will offer McAfee Mobile Security pre-installed on its “LifeTouch” series cloud communicator starting August 26, 2011. McAfee Mobile Security is the industry’s most comprehensive and powerful mobile security suite. The pre-installation of this security suite on the NEC “LifeTouch” series represents the first service bundle of its kind to be made available in Japan.

“We are pleased to partner with McAfee in bundling the globally-proven McAfee Mobile Security together with our “LifeTouch” series cloud communicator,” said Kazuo Nishidai, Vice President and Executive General Manager Personal Solutions Operations Unit at NEC Corporation. “Working with McAfee enables us to address a wide range of customer needs, from consumer side to business side. Through our partnership with McAfee, we remain committed to building up our portfolio of “LifeTouch” products as a series that offers enhanced security.”

The “LifeTouch” series cloud communicator is an Android device positioned between computers and mobile phones, offering performance and mobility comparable to both. NEC and McAfee have been working together to protect “LifeTouch” series users from high-profile vulnerabilities and the increasing number of threats to the Android platform, while at the same time providing them with a more comfortable and secure user experience.

McAfee Mobile Security is a comprehensive and powerful mobile security suite. It can back up and restore data, protect devices from viruses and other threats, locate and lock devices, wipe data, and block risky sites based on ratings. The suite enables users to guard their devices against viruses and malware, protect their personal data by triggering a remote wipe via the easy-to-use web console, and avoid risky websites and web-based threats that target their personal and confidential information. Utilizing the expertise McAfee has cultivated through its efforts to protect mobile phones from viruses and other threats, McAfee Mobile Security minimizes memory resource consumption and has little effect on performance and web-browsing speed.

After the end of the 30-day trial period, a one-year subscription of the solution can be purchased for 2,980 yen (tax-included price for the license)
