McAfee All Access 2013 Enhances Cross-Device Protection For Consumers

Stocks in this article: INTC

McAfee today announced significant enhancements to McAfee All Access, the industry’s premier integrated cross-device security product for PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets. McAfee All Access 2013’s new, consolidated dashboard enables consumers to quickly and easily monitor how devices are protected, invite family members to install protection on their devices, and instantly access free premium technical support. With one central location to install and manage mobile, data and system security as well as family protection, McAfee All Access safeguards all facets of users’ digital lives and enables them to enjoy a safe online experience regardless of device or location.

According to the McAfee Threats Report: Third Quarter 2012, the company found that the number of threats across all platforms and devices continues to rise. Traditional web threats, like suspicious URLs, are growing and saw a 20 percent quarter-over-quarter increase, mobile malware nearly doubled, and Mac malware shows strong, continued growth. In addition, McAfee warned that both Trojans designed to steal passwords and Autorun malware, which spreads through flash drives, memory cards, and other external devices, are increasing. McAfee All Access’s broad and deep security portfolio delivers the most comprehensive means of protection against the rapidly evolving threat landscape.

“As cybercriminals continue to penetrate through new and multiple attack vectors, consumer reliance on Internet-connected devices and the data stored on them has also skyrocketed,” said Steve Petracca, senior vice president and general manager for McAfee’s consumer business unit. “Cross-device protection, therefore, has gone from being a nice-to-have to an absolute essential. And McAfee All Access enables consumers to get the optimal protection they need with an even greater level of ease and simplicity.”

McAfee All Access also includes new McAfee SiteAdvisor Social software that color-codes risks that appear within social networking sites for guidance and safety access. Downloaded more than 55 million times a year, McAfee SiteAdvisor software adds safety ratings to browser and search engine results helping protect consumers from the Internet’s more than 43 million suspect URLs 1. McAfee All Access’s new vulnerability scanner proactively detects vulnerabilities in the operating system and in installed apps, and a redesigned user interface supports new touch-friendly devices with easier layout and faster navigation. Users can also take advantage of mobile privacy enhancements including a call and SMS filter, as well as an app privacy alert feature.

McAfee has also launched its portfolio of consumer PC security suites – McAfee Total Protection 2013, McAfee Internet Security 2013 and McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2013 – all of which feature a redesigned powerful malware detection framework with proactive detection and cleaning capabilities. An enhanced McAfee NetGuard feature also offers contextually aware anti-bot protection monitors where applications want to connect and informs the user of suspicious activity. McAfee’s consumer products are all compatible with and offer complete protection for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.
