"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."
