McAfee has announced it’s extending its mobile device portfolio for consumers with McAfee Mobile Security and McAfee WaveSecure Tablet Edition. These offerings give consumers security safeguards for their mobile devices.

A report released last month by McAfee and Carnegie Mellon University found the top security concerns for consumers were the loss of personal work or data through the accidental loss of a device, physical theft of the device and loss of their data through the device “crashing.”

“With device growth eclipsing PCs, consumers need tools to not only protect their personal information, but also to provide safeguards for business data should they decide to use that device for work,” said Todd Gebhart, executive vice president and general manager of consumer small business and mobile for McAfee.

Through McAfee Mobile Security, consumers can back up and restore data and have protection against misuse. Other features include: an audible alarm, the ability to remotely remove data from a lost or stolen device, 24/7 real-time anti-malware protection, and protection against malicious websites, identity theft and credit card fraud when shopping.
