Device-to-cloud security company McAfee announced its extension of the long-standing partnership with Samsung to protect consumers’ personal data and information from online threats.
Through this partnership, Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S Series, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Fold, will come pre-installed with anti-malware protection powered by McAfee. In addition to mobile, the partnership expands to better protect Samsung PCs and laptops users, where it matters.
The digital landscape for consumers is constantly evolving, with more consumers living an online life. There are now roughly four billion consumers connected online for an average of over six hours a day, from sharing photos to socializing with friends to completing bank transactions.
Consumers expect to be able to do what they desire online — whenever and wherever they want- without worrying about the potential risks that might be lurking online. According to McAfee Labs, 504 threats are discovered every minute- showcasing just how important it is that consumers are vigilant when connecting online.
“Consumers are connected more than ever, and McAfee is dedicated to protecting them online when they shop, bank, share, and journey across the internet,” said Terry Hicks, executive vice president, consumer business group, McAfee. “Our partnership with Samsung continues our mission to give consumers peace of mind that their personal data, as well as their families and friends, won’t be jeopardized online.”
