McAfee Extends Partnership with Samsung to Safeguard Samsung PCs, Galaxy S8 Smartphones and Smart TVs Worldwide

New Collaborations Allow Consumers to Connect with Confidence using McAfee Protection

Singapore – May 9, 2017 – McAfee today announced further collaboration with Samsung to provide pre-installed security software protection on Samsung Smart TVs, Samsung PCs, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone line worldwide. With this collaboration, McAfee is delivering on its vision to provide protection for connected devices.

                “Protecting every connected device in your home is absolutely essential today,” said John Giamatteo, executive vice president, consumer business group, McAfee.  “That’s because if one device is attacked, it puts your entire home network at risk. While that level of protection might sound like a lot of effort, McAfee makes sure that it’s easy. We believe there is power in working with partners like Samsung to build world-class security into devices like smart TVs, PCs, and smartphones so that these devices are protected right out of the box.”

“By 2022, households in Asia Pacific are tipped to be the biggest adopters of smart home technologies and it is of the utmost importance that consumers know how they can properly secure their own homes and connected devices against cyber attacks,” said David Freer, vice president, consumer, Asia Pacific, McAfee. “With the evolving threat landscape and the adoption of smart home technologies growing at exponential levels to attract the attention of hackers, it is paramount that we educate and enable consumers in Asia by providing solutions that are already built-in into smart home products to make their journey to living in a secure home as seamless as possible.”

According to a recent McAfee survey, nearly 44% of consumers are worried about their personal financial information being stolen while 38% are worried about identity theft. These consumer fears underscore the need for robust cross-device security. McAfee protection addresses growing concerns like these across multiple devices.

                “As the connected world of devices continues to expand into consumers’ homes, Samsung users can feel comfortable knowing that their devices are protected with the latest security solutions,” said Henry Lee, VP of Mobile Security Technologies, and the Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We understand the importance of building security in devices from the start and are proud to offer solutions that provide convenience while keeping our customers safe.”
