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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
