Workgroup has announced the availability of a new modular three-prong approach to enable mobile operators to counter the increasing threats posed by malicious and abusive content and create a secure framework on which to build future services.

McAfee's Mobile Security Risk Management is a comprehensive approach to mobile security that enables mobile operators to understand and mitigate security risks to their business, protect and give peace of mind to
customers, and avoid the negative impact on their brand and business from malicious attacks.
This is according to McAfee product manager at Workgroup, Bernadine Botha, who says that mobile services are expanding globally with increasingly diverse functionality.
"Driven by further platform consolidation, connectivity, bandwidth and impressive new device capabilities, the mobile environment is increasingly becoming a target for malicious attacks," she says.
In the context of these evolving security threats, McAfee Mobile Security Risk Management provides
operators with a professional risk assessment of the threats to their business, comprehensive protection for the network, devices, content and applications, and effective recovery services from malware outbreaks.
The solution comprises three modules which can be delivered individually or as an integrated solution:
– McAfee Mobile Assess – lays the foundation, providing worldwide mobile threat intelligence placed in the context of a mobile operator environment so that service providers can understand what the current threats are and the specific risk they pose to businesses.
– McAfee Mobile Protect – offers effective solutions based on proven technology to secure today's mobile environment and enable future services and revenues.
– McAfee Mobile Recover – a range of solutions that proactively prepare mobile service providers for a potential outbreak and ensure that operators are able to remotely clean devices and restore customer services as quickly as possible.
