Intel Security bundles biometric authentication app into consumer security services

 

Intel Security announced it released a new line of consumer security services designed to protect consumers’ digital lives and their devices, including its biometric identification app True Key.

The cross-device security services extend unlimited cross-device protection beyond the McAfee LiveSafe service to McAfee AntiVirus Plus, McAfee Internet Security, and McAfee Total Protection.

The new services are designed to help consumers better secure their devices and personal data, regardless of where they are, what device they use or where they store their personal data.

“Today digital security must go beyond antivirus technology. It’s an imperative for everyone who connects online to have layered security to afford them the best possible protection,” said John Giamatteo, corporate vice president and general manager of consumer at Intel Security. “It’s time to think and act differently in such a way that fundamentally alters the way we will protect our customers. We are doing just that by integrating and extending security in ways we think will profoundly enhance our abilities to detect and protect against the latest threats.”

The products safeguard users against online threats, deliver device-specific protection in case of loss or theft, and help secure the identities of users across their devices.

The security services offer a range of new features and improvements, including cross device security; new scan, discover and protect technology; sign-In without using passwords, improved mobile protection, new wearable security, and access to the next generation of browsing protection via McAfee WebAdvisor.

Additionally, Intel Security’s True Key allows consumers to log into mobile apps, websites, and devices using a combination of factors such as their face, fingerprint or devices.

The premium version is included in McAfee Internet Security, McAfee Total Protection and McAfee LiveSafe.

The new features and enhancements provide consumers with a safer and seamless online experience that allows them to manage security from nearly any device.

Previously reported, mobile device firm Prestigio will launch True Key by Intel Security across EMEA with an initial pre-install roll-out in Russia.
