SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MWW Group (www.mww.com), one of the top ten global independent public relations firms, announced today that it has been selected as agency of record by NQ Mobile Inc. (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of consumer mobile services focusing on privacy, security and productivity. As agency of record, MWW will focus on increasing NQ Mobile's brand awareness, particularly as the company introduces products in expanding markets, while also positioning co-CEOs Henry Lin and Omar Khan as visionary thought leaders in the mobile industry.
NQ Mobile will draw upon three practice areas: Technology and Digital Content, Public Affairs and MWW Group's Financial Relations Board. Through this combination, MWW will marry digital content, technology, and marketing public relations, resulting in a strong expertise in driving the adoption of app-based services. The account will be led out of the firm's San Francisco office and will also support NQ's efforts to bring its security and privacy technology to manufacturers, wireless operators and other partners.
"In this technology-driven world, where an individual's most private and sensitive information is often stored on a smartphone, it's critical for consumers to secure and protect their devices," said Michael W. Kempner, president and CEO of MWW Group. "With its proprietary approach and technology, NQ Mobile has a clear advantage over the competition and is poised for tremendous growth as it enters the mass consumer market."
NQ Mobile is a global leader in mobile security and productivity applications. NQ Mobile's proprietary "cloud+client" twin engine platform enables it to identify 75 percent of global mobile threats faster than any other mobile security provider. In addition to mobile security, NQ Mobile's products include cloud-based privacy and security solutions, as well as productivity applications that allow consumers to better manage their time and relationships.
"I've had the opportunity to work with MWW Group previously, and we've seen first-hand the firm's significant capabilities in mobile technology and consumer branding," said Khan. "As NQ Mobile continues to rapidly expand across the globe, it was important to choose an agency that can provide us with a wide range of expertise as we drive the brand into the United States and Western Europe. We're confident that MWW will be a vital partner as we continue to grow NQ Mobile's market position and take our company to the next level."
