McAfee, a leading developer of sMobile Security Technologyecurity solutions, has released an enhanced version of its McAfee Mobile Security platform.

Mobile security becoming a growing concern for consumers

Mobile security is becoming a serious issue for mobile consumers around the world. A growing number of people are using their mobile devices to keep track of vital information and to keep track of their finances. This makes these devices very attractive targets for hackers who are keen to exploit this information for personal gain. McAfee, as well as other security companies, have been urging consumers to ensure that their mobile devices are as secure as possible, making use of one or more of the security applications available to them.

App Lock protects popular applications

The McAfee Mobile Security App Lock feature provides consumers with a way to protect their privacy by preventing the malicious use of some of the world’s most popular mobile applications. These applications include Facebook, LinkedIn, and Gmail. These applications are often targeted by hackers in order to gain access to sensitive information. The App Lock feature literally locks these applications, preventing them from being used without authorization from their owner. McAfee believes that the App Lock feature is another layer of protection that consumers can use to ensure the security of their mobile device.

Platform provides array of active protection

The McAfee Mobile Security platform also offers a range of anti-virus and anti-malware features, as well as protection against theft through a comprehensive back-up data storage service. The platform actively monitors a mobile device to guard against mobile security breaches and can also warn consumers of websites that are known to host malicious content.

Augmented Reality Metaio CloudMetaio Cloud introduces cloud-based services

Metaio, a leading developer of augmented reality technology, has been working on a way to make it easier for companies to develop augmented reality campaigns. Earlier this year, the company introduced the Metaio Creator, which simplified the process significantly. Now, Metaio has introduced the Metaio Cloud, which aims to streamline management of augmented reality content across a vast network of mobile applications, ideal for businesses that have a wide reach when it comes to consumers.

Augmented reality gaining ground as a marketing and entertainment tool

Augmented reality is quickly becoming a very popular and powerful marketing tool. Tech-savvy consumers have praised the technology because of its ability to provide them with dynamic content. Mobile applications that incorporate augmented reality in some way often manage to attract aggressive attention from consumers. In the past, it has been difficult for businesses to keep track of the wide range of augmented reality content they provide to consumers. The Metaio Cloud aims to solve this problem by making management much simpler.

Metaio Cloud could be a boon for less-experienced programmers

Metaio is well aware than not everyone is a professional programmer. This does not stop some companies from adopting augmented reality, however, and Metaio is keen to ensure that consumers have a positive experience with the technology no matter which company is making use of it. The Metaio Cloud allows businesses to take advantage of a cloud computing network, which can be quickly accessed to pull resources into an application or other type of platform. The Metaio Cloud allows augmented reality content to be changed and pushed to consumers in real-time without having to submit updates to existing applications to various app stores.

Qualcomm also introduces features to make development simpler

Metaio is not the only player in the augmented reality space that is working on making the technology more accessible to businesses. Qualcomm also has a platform called Vuforia that helps simplify augmented reality content for businesses and consumers. Qualcomm recently introduced a new update to its Vuforia SDK that allows for cloud-based image recognition features for mobile applications developed using the platform.
