In Barcelona, Spain on Feb. 27, 2012 McAfee unveils its series of technology advancements that deliver upon its vision of providing comprehensive mobile security and privacy protection for devices, data and apps. McAfee® Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM™) 10.0, available now, includes significant security updates for enterprise customers to enable 'bring your own device' practices in the enterprise.

With EMM 10.0, IT professionals will have improved control to identify, secure, and assign policies to both employee- and business-owned smartphones and tablets.The concern for IT professionals is "BYOD" (Bring Your Own Device) which has become widely adopted to refer to mobile workers bringing their own mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and PDAs, into the workplace for use and connectivity.

Today, many consumers expect to be able to use personal smartphones and mobile devices at work, which is an IT concern. Many corporations that allow employees to use their own mobile devices at work implement a "BYOD policy" to help I better manage these devices and ensure network security."Expanded Data Security, Application Security and Ease of Administration McAfee EMM software gives enterprises the ability to offer their employees mobile device choice, while delivering secure and easy access to mobile corporate applications.

New features and functionality include: Expanded Data Security: Email "Sandboxing" for iOS and an integrated Secure Container for Android, available by Q2 Enhanced Application Security: Application Blacklisting for Android and iOS allows the administrator to define a set of applications and block access.Ease of Administration: Bulk provisioning for Android and iOS Enhanced Protection for Consumers McAfee® Mobile Security 2.0 for consumers, which offers an all-encompassing approach to mobile security and protects a user's privacy when using smartphones and Android tablets.
