The Bluboo S8 is getting protection from Wannacry and Petya (Promoted)

More than 150 countries were hit by the Wannacry virus recently. Hospitals were locked out of their patient files and people lost pictures and videos of precious memories on their home computers. Luckily one young programmer stepped up and solved the Wannacry issue, but the incident really focused the world on what can happen when we’re not using proper security.

For that reason, Bluboo is teaming up with BO-OS and will be adopting the professional network security brand’s software on it’s newest phone, the Bluboo S8 due out in July. Why announce this now with the Wannacry crisis mostly over? Well, that’s just one threat. We’re currently seeing malicious software like Petya ravage Ukraine and continue to spread further out into the world. And who knows what’s next. Bluboo wants its customers to be prepared by preloading security software on its devices.

Software security has become a hot topic in the last few years. BlackBerry and Samsung have made it a point to develop strong security for its devices as well as preloading virus scanners like Lookout. Now Bluboo is following suit.
