FOSTER CITY, Calif. -- Funambol, the leading provider of white-label personal cloud solutions, today announced it has integrated McAfee's antivirus capabilities into its personal cloud solution to bolster the integrity of cloud data and to safeguard users. When user content is synced from mobile devices and computers to their personal clouds, their content is automatically checked against the latest antivirus definitions from McAfee, to ensure their content is virus-free. If viruses are found, the content is quarantined and the user is notified of a threat. In this manner, users of Funambol-powered personal clouds with integrated McAfee security can rest assured that their cloud content is safe and that content they share with others is secure.

"Personal clouds are one of the fastest growth areas for storage and it is important that people know that their cloud data is safe," said Greg Brown, CTO of Cloud Security at McAfee. “The integration of McAfee security into Funambol's personal cloud solution helps protect mobile users worldwide.”

There are now more than one billion personal cloud accounts in the world, and rapid growth is expected for several years. At the same time, a potential inhibitor to growth is concern about the safety of data in the cloud. The incorporation of McAfee antivirus capabilities into Funambol's personal cloud solution helps to address this concern and pave the way for additional usage. The initial deployment of Funambol's solution with McAfee is scheduled for the first quarter of 2014.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
