BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mobile World Congress – McAfee today announced the expansion of its strategic partnership with Türk Telekom by launching Türk Telekom Total Protection, delivering security protection across multiple and varying devices.
Through the partnership, the new protection for PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets will be available to Türk Telekom mobile and broadband customers across their footprint, from March 2018 and allows them to choose from a variety of packages to suit their needs and budget. Türk Telekom Total Protection will keep customers’ data, documents and devices protected against viruses, spam, and malware.
The partnership builds on McAfee and Türk Telekom’s longstanding relationship, as McAfee has offered internet security for the leading telecoms provider for 10 years across PCs. Türk Telekom Total Protection is the company’s first cross-device protection offering for multiple and varying devices and platforms.
“As consumers become more and more connected at home and on the move, security risks are also increasing,” said Pedro Gutierrez, vice president, worldwide global consumer sales at McAfee. “McAfee is seeing new and growing threats emerge each and every day. Türk Telekom shares our vision of protecting customers from such threats so they can have better peace of mind when connected, no matter how many devices they’re using or whether they’re at home or out and about.”
“Powered by McAfee, Türk Telekom Total Protection offers comprehensive online protection,” added Gutierrez. “Our solution achieved the highest possible score and was named ‘Top Product’ by the German anti-malware test-lab AV-Test**, meaning Türk Telekom’s customers are receiving a highly effective and affordable cross-device solution.”
Hakan Dursun, Chief Marketing Officer at Türk Telekom commented: “With the license based on the user and not per device, several devices are protected for just one fee. This is great news for our customers, who are using and connecting to our network from multiple devices, every day. The latest development in our partnership with McAfee empowers our customers to stay connected across all their devices. We chose McAfee because its solutions offer the highest security ratings and easiest installation, and we want our customers to have direct access to one of the best security solutions on the market.”
