McAfee anti-virus to be incorporated into FOMA 901i mobile phones from NTT DoCoMo
Posted on 18-Nov-2004 07:01 | Filed under: News



Japanese mobile operator NTT DoCoMo Japan will provide users with McAfee VirusScan Content Scanning technology as a built-in service on the new FOMA 901i series 3G mobile phones. The technology was developed in a partnership between both companies.

Citing the recent worms 'Cabir' as an indication of the need for security solutions specifically designed for mobile phones and other smart devices, Victor Kouznetsov, senior vice president of McAfee Mobile Solutions said "McAfee's continuing partnership with NTT DoCoMo allows us to leverage our joint strengths to develop solutions for mobile handsets, while also validating our goal to protect all consumers -- both PC and wireless users -- from security threats."

"NTT DoCoMo has always designed its mobile phones with extra attention paid to security, and as such NTT DoCoMo's mobile phones have been safe and secure. Nevertheless, since January 2002, NTT DoCoMo and McAfee have engaged in the development activity with the understanding that security will become increasingly important as future mobile phones come packed with even greater features, such as those from advancement in existing functionalities, introduction of PC technologies, all the while with phones becoming more global. We are happy that the technology jointly developed using McAfee's security technology and NTT DoCoMo's mobile technology is incorporated into NTT DoCoMo's mobile phones. We would like to thank McAfee for their technological prowess and development cooperation," said Mr. Koji Chiba, Managing Director of NTT DoCoMo's Customer Equipment Development Department
