Intel Security Extends Protection Tto INnclude LG’s New Wearable Device in Addition to Smartphones Print E-mail

Intel Security announced that it will help protect the LG Watch Urbane LTE with McAfee Mobile Security. Last June, the two companies announced that all LG G3 smartphones would come pre-installed with McAfee Mobile Security providing customers a more secure way to download new apps, shop online, interact on social networks and use their devices for banking and ecommerce.

The IDC predicts that over 112 million wearables will be sold globally by the year 2018. As wearable technology continues to grow, new security and privacy risks may emerge. Wearables often interact with other devices and some may collect data, which makes them a potential target for hackers who want to tap into and access sensitive personal information, such as location, login credentials, credit card information, health information and much more.

"As wearable devices gain critical mass, the data they store is likely to be increasingly targeted because the value of the data is roughly 10 times that of a stolen credit card," said, John Giamatteo, senior vice president and general manager at Intel Security. "It’s important that security be integrated into these new devices in order to help detect and protect against evolving threats. We are excited about working with a leader like LG Electronics, to offer users around the world with our award-winning security software.”

LG G3 smartphone users are already protected with McAfee Mobile Security that integrates the LG Kill Switch feature allowing them to disable their phones remotely in the event of loss or theft. Now McAfee Mobile Security will also be available on the LG Watch Urbane LTE with anti-theft capabilities allowing them to lock, locate and wipe their devices, if needed. McAfee Mobile Security solution for LG watch Urbane LTE will be distributed by LG SmartWorld.
