Security technology company McAfee says it is extending platform support for consumers with its newly released McAfee WaveSecure software iOS Edition.
McAfee, which already supports the Apple iOS for business users with its Enterprise Mobility Manager software, is now supporting individual iPhone users via an easy-to-download app, addressing mobile users’ primary security concern—protection against data and device loss or theft.
The software enables users to protect their privacy and mobile data, whether their iPhone is lost or stolen, ensuring irreplaceable and private information can be backed up and restored, safe from misuse.
Users can wirelessly back up contacts, photos and videos as well as remotely track the location of their iPhone via the McAfee WaveSecure online portal. Moreover, users can wirelessly restore their contacts, even to an Android device.
“Consumers use their mobile devices to hold some of the most important details of their life. McAfee WaveSecure software works seamlessly to secure, back up and wirelessly restore content on the device via the online portal. So even if the device is lost, stolen or damaged, or even if users accidentally delete their data, the data remains safe and easily accessible,” said Todd Gebhart, co-president, McAfee.
The software is available in the English, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French (European and Canadian), German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Swedish, Spanish (European and Mexican) and Russian. It is available for a one-time fee of $19.99 USD from the Apple App Store. McAfee made this announcement today, August 15.
McAfee, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation, is a leading security technology company.
