Tuesday 25 November 2014 13:48 CET | News

Intel and McAfee have revealed plans to make biometric technology to authenticate users available for download by the end of 2014.

McAfee is owned by Intel, and the chip maker is building smartphone, tablet and PC technology that takes advantage of the security software. Intel has also worked on biometric technology for wearable devices like SMS Audio’s BioSport In-Ear Headphones, which can measure a person’s heart rate.

Intel Security is focused on developing proactive, proven security solutions and services that protect systems, networks, and mobile devices for business and personal use around the world.

In recent news, McAfee and Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in the war against cybercrime.
