Intel Security Mobile Threat Report showcases the need for security against a growing volume of mobile malware and expanding attack surface

Intel Security announced McAfee® Mobile Security will be pre-installed on the latest smartphone from LG Electronics, the LG G5, to enable users to connect with more confidence. This extends an existing agreement whereby LG Electronics selected McAfee Mobile Security to help protect against security threats and provide theft protection for its G4 smartphone. With the pre-installed application, LG G5 users will enjoy antivirus and anti-theft benefits as well as enhanced privacy settings, enabling them to experience the mobile world with greater confidence.

As we become increasingly connected, mobile devices are the tip of the spear for new hacking methods. Intel Security’s Mobile Threat Reportrecently found that three million mobile devices were affected by malware solely through mobile app stores over the past six months. Additionally, Intel Security found that in Q4 2015 mobile malware samples increased 24 percent compared to Q3 2015, reinforcing the need for consumers to have appropriate protection to help protect their devices and digital lives.

“McAfee Mobile Security offers award-winning protection for mobile devices, so it’s no surprise that smartphone manufacturer LG chose it to help protect its G4 and now G5 smartphones,” said John Giamatteo, corporate vice president at Intel Security. “As LG’s customers turn to mobile devices and mobile applications to enrich their lives, we will offer them innovative solutions to help protect their devices, their digital lives and allow them to connect to the Internet more securely and with confidence.”
