Samsung Tizen smartphones to come pre-installed with McAfee Mobile Security

Last updated:

Earlier this month, Samsung launched the Z1, it’s first Tizen OS smartphone in India.

Today, Intel Security has announced it has partnered with Samsung to pre-install its McAfee Mobile Security software in Samsung Tizen OS smartphones, including the Samsung Z1.

Recent Intel Security research found that the manipulation of legitimate mobile apps and services has played a key role in the expansion of mobile malware, highlighting the need for robust security options to detect threats across multiple operating systems.

One of the most common behaviours of mobile malware included collecting and sending device data to build a profile of the owner’s behaviour. Another threat associated with device hijacking makes the mobile device into a bot and installs other, even more malicious malware.

Commenting on the partnership with Samsung, Sean Duca, Chief Technology Officer Asia Pacific, McAfee, part of Intel Security, said:

With mobile malware samples up, we firmly believe that security should be seamlessly integrated into telecommunications. By including our software on new operating systems like Tizen, security is developed in parallel with the ever-expanding technology landscape.

The latest version of McAfee Mobile Security for Android, iOS and Tizen devices enables consumers to run instant privacy and security scans, as well as allowing users to easily remove the apps that may pose the most significant risks.
