McAfee is to launch new security packages aimed at wireless communications devices, specifically mobile handsets and tablets.
The internet security provider will change the licensing format for its vendor and service provider partners to bundle the WaveSecure and VirusScan packages as a single offering.
By combining the platforms, partner companies could offer end users and enterprises a security bundle that includes malware scanning and blocking.
"The proliferation of mobile devices has really determined the need for protection that can span beyond the consumer to the enterprise," explained Todd Gebhart, senior vice president and general manager of small business, consumer and mobile security at McAfee.
He added: "Our goal is to help our partners differentiate their device or their service, make it easier for our consumer customers to bring their device to work when they're ready, but rest assured that their own data is protected, and enable our business customers to offer guidance to their end users."
