McAfee, NTT East Release Security Suite to Protect Hikari iFrame Tablets

Security software maker McAfee has partnered with Japan's NTT East to provide a mobile security solution for the Hikari iFrame tablet.

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation's Hikari iFrame tablet device will get a mobile security app based on McAfee's Mobile Security software, which will come with anti-malware, anti-theft and safe web browsing capabilities.

The companies said that the security software suite will not only protect the users of the tablet from malware, but also block websites that attempt to steal their information or try to install malware by dubious means.

The software suite, which will be available from this month, will be available for download from the FLET's Market when users set-up their devices.

"The popularity of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and information terminals like the Hikari iFrame, continues to increase," said Jean-Claude Broido, President of McAfee Japan.

"We're pleased to provide technical cooperation to NTT East to protect Hikari iFrame users. With security technology based on McAfee Mobile Security, Hikari iFrame users will be protected from malware and malicious websites, helping them to safely browse the Web." he added.
