Some 27 percent of Australian Internet users now own at least five devices, and 64 percent own at least three – but 38 percent of them are failing to secure all their devices, according to a McAfee survey.

Some 27 percent of Australian Internet users now own at least five devices, and 64 percent own at least three – but 38 percent of them are failing to secure all their devices, according to a McAfee survey.

This is despite a finding that Australian consumers place an average value on their digital assets of $21,723. Those assets include photo libraries, personal information and entertainment files.

The security software company – now part of the Intel empire – revealed these figures yesterday as it launched a new cross-device software suite claimed to be the industry’s first to offer protection for most of a household’s Internet-enabled gadgets.

Most but not – alas – all. McAfee’s new All Access suite, introduced to media at a classy nosh-up at Neil Perry’s RockPool Bar & Grill in Sydney yesterday, is claimed to offer protection against malware, hackers, theft, inappropriate content for children and more for a household’s smartphones, tablets, netbooks, PCs and Macs – but not for iPhones or iPads.

“Apple won’t allow it,” sighed Monica Kelly, McAfee A/NZ’s director for consumer, small business and mobile.

For devices that are protected, including Macs, the suite includes anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-phishing tools, two-way firewalls, anti-spam tools, home network protection, location tracking for Android, Symbian and Blackberry phones and tablets, remote lock and wipe features and back-up and restore options.
