Intel Security and Micromax Join Forces to Safeguard the Digital Lives of Indians

by March 8, 2017 0 comments

Intel Security announces a strategic partnership with Micromax, to protect its range of smartphones against growing and increasingly complex mobile threats. These devices will come integrated with McAfee Mobile Assistant that will help provide a secure mobile experience to Micromax users in India.

According to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), today, 133 million phones in India are connected to the internet. As the country moves towards integrating mobile in the economy, there has been a surge in usage of mobile wallets, online transactions and app downloads, making the smartphones even more vulnerable and a playing field for cyber criminals.

According to McAfee Labs Threat Predictions Report, mobile malware will continue to grow and target vulnerable consumers. As more consumers use their mobile devices in day to day activities from online banking to managing their connected devices, malware writers are rapidly evolving their techniques to exploit unsuspecting users to gain access their information, further underscoring need for robust protection.

Micromax smartphones with integrated McAfee Mobile Assistant will be available starting April 2017.
