McAfee and Good Technology Partner to Deliver OTA Antivirus Software
Posted on 8-Nov-2005 09:37 | Tags Filed under: News



McAfee, Inc. and Good Technology, Inc. have announced a partnership and agreement to enable enterprises to distribute McAfee VirusScan Mobile entirely over-the-air to smartphones, using Good's Secure OTA technology.

VirusScan Mobile, available for Pocket PC OS 2002 and Windows Mobile 2003, will be readily available as a partner application for over-the-air distribution via the GoodLink Management Console, and the companies will work together to continually ensure handhelds can get the latest McAfee software using Good's Secure OTA capability.

"As mobile devices become an important repository for corporate data as well as a growing point of Internet and network connectivity, they require the same level of protection that's now become a standard for laptops and desktops," said Drew Carter, senior product manager, McAfee Mobile Initiatives. "Good Technology's Secure OTA technology combined with McAfee VirusScan Mobile, the most comprehensive mobile virus security solution, extends that standard to wireless handhelds, enabling enterprises to ensure the safety of their mission critical data with minimal effort and cost to IT."

McAfee offers mobile security solutions that have been architected, designed and implemented specifically for manufacturers, carriers, enterprises and the consumer market. Its flagship product, McAfee VirusScan Mobile, provides scanning, detection and cleaning of handheld data to prevent corruption due to viruses, worms, dialers, Trojans, battery-sapping malware, and other malicious code. VirusScan Mobile protects devices against the threats that originate from e-mail, instant messaging, and Internet downloads, and protects multiple entry points including SMS, MMS, and Bluetooth. Up-to-date protection is delivered as soon as threats are identified through McAfee's leading research organization, AVERT.

Using a combination of Good's Secure OTA application management technology and Good Mobile Defense, IT managers will be able to automatically push and enforce VirusScan Mobile on handhelds, without requiring end users to ever part with their devices.
