A free trial version of Multi-Access software will be available to Fujitsu computer users in the U.S., Japan, Europe and Asia, according to a McAfee statement.

The software is designed to safeguard up to three Internet-enabled computers and mobile devices and has an annual subscription of $89.99 once the trial period ends.

McAfee Labs found that malware samples in the database exceeded 113 million during the fourth quarter of 2012.

It also saw a year-over-year 44-fold increase in mobile malware samples detected last year.
