With users increasing mobility and the rapid growing numbers of laptops and mobile computing devices purchases, the risk of theft and loss is increasing too. This solution will provide device lock, data wipe and location tracking.
“McAfee has a strong legacy of delivering security solutions to consumers through our partner channel as well as an established partner eco-system,” said Steve Petracca, senior vice president of Consumer Marketing at McAfee. “By making easy-to-use anti-theft software for Ultrabook systems available, our partners are able to leverage proven security deployment models to protect consumers. This also allows our partners to differentiate themselves from a crowded field of competitors.”
“Despite the fact that laptops and personal data are stolen each and every day around the world, people’s computers often hold some of the most private and valuable information including bank statements, tax returns, pictures, and videos,” said George Thangadurai, general manager, PC Client Services Division at Intel. “To address the pervasive nature of such threats, Intel and McAfee are collaborating to deliver scalable and innovative anti-theft solutions starting with Ultrabook systems that will help to provide more peace of mind to people.”
Not only will this anti-theft solution benefit mobile customers, but also OEMS, retailers and telecommunications providers.
