New Agreement Calls for Security Software on Laptops

Toshiba today announced an agreement with McAfee, Inc. to include McAfee SecurityCenter and McAfee VirusScan on the current libretto U105, libretto U100 and Tecra M4 models, and on future Toshiba notebook PCs offered by Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.

The enhanced McAfee VirusScan provides real-time protection against viruses, mass-mailing worms and Trojans as well as helps detect and remove potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) such as spyware, adware and dialers.

Throughout the 30-day complimentary subscription period users will receive automatic updates and feature upgrades that will help protect them from the latest online threats.

McAfee SecurityCenter will provide Toshiba customers access to additional 30-day complimentary subscriptions of other award-winning McAfee security software including McAfee Personal Firewall Plus, McAfee Privacy Service and McAfee SpamKiller.

"It is Toshiba's mission to offer its notebook customers the most effective security choices available," said Taro Hiyama, vice president of marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba
America Information Systems, Inc. "We selected McAfee based on their reputation, quality security offerings and innovative partner programs."

 
"We are pleased to be working with Toshiba to provide consumers improved control over their PCs and Internet experience with simple, easy-to-use, comprehensive protection against increasingly sophisticated Internet threats that may compromise their privacy or identity online," said Todd Gebhart, senior vice president of worldwide consumer sales, McAfee.
