Telefónica España Offers McAfee Mobile Security

Telefónica España is offering McAfee’s Multi-Access (MMA) software to its Movistar customers to protect smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs from the risk of data loss, theft or viruses.

McAfee’s Multi-Access offering provides 24x7 anti-virus protection and safe web search by blocking risky links, such as phishing sites. If the device is lost or stolen, Movistar customers can trace and block the device and delete personal information remotely if required, safe in the knowledge that the data can be restored on another device.

Fernando Abella, Digital Services director at Telefónica España, said: ‘Accessing information and services at any time, across any device, is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ feature but a necessity. Whether shopping online, conducting internet banking or surfing the web, consumers want the freedom to do so safely and securely, from any device. With this new service Telefónica and McAfee help to make security simple by protecting multiple devices from viruses, threats and risky websites all under the one easy to use service subscription’.
