McAfee buys Trust Digital for iPhone enterprise safety

Trust us, we're anti-virus experts

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

McAfee has bought privately-held enterprise mobility management and security startup Trust Digital. The terms of the deal, announced Tuesday, were undisclosed.

The agreement will allow McAfee to offer a wider range of enterprise-targeted mobile security products for smartphone platforms, including iPhone OS, Android, Web OS, Windows Mobile and Symbian. Trust Digital's technology will be integrated into McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator management console technology. This symbiosis will guard against such risks as malicious downloads of applications onto smartphone devices.

McAfee's pitch is that its technology will make the roll-out of iPhone and Android smartphones in enterprises safer. It's unclear how many of Trust Digital's 40 workers will be offered jobs with McAfee. ®
