PETALING JAYA: Maxis Bhd has unveiled its Maxis Secure Campaign, which offers a suite of services that enables users to protect their data and devices. The services comprise antitheft, complete phone backup, antivirus, Internet security and remote surveillance.

The company said that as smartphones become more powerful and ubiquitous, cyber-criminals are increasingly focusing on the mobile space, creating viruses with malicious intent.

With these services, the company said it is providing its customers with the tools to combat threats in the mobile and Internet space.

The antitheft service aims to guard sensitive data in mobile devices from falling into the wrong hands by allowing users to remotely lock, wipe and track their mobile device over the Internet or via SMS in case of loss or theft of their devices.

The complete phone backup service allows users to back-up data such as SMSes, contacts, pictures, videos and calendars. To protect mobile phones from malicious viruses, users can opt for the antivirus service.

Meanwhile PC users can use the Internet security application to protect their PCs from virus attacks, spyware, spam as well as provide protection when browsing compromised websites. The Internet security service covers up to three PCs in a household.

Lastly, the remote surveillance service acts as a safety precaution where crime is concern. It offers the freedom to view live video images captured from installed cameras or closed circuit television systems.

All the above services are available on 3G and GPRS mobile devices, personal digital assistants and Windows mobile devices. The services are compatible with Symbian and Windows Mobile operating systems platforms.

The price for the services ranges from RM2 to RM20 per month. Maxis customers can enjoy a free one-month subscription to antitheft and complete phone backup services from May 11 onwards.
