Intel Security’s New Consumer Security Lineup Extends Use
OREANDA-NEWS. Intel Security today launched its 2017 consumer security lineup featuring security innovations to better protect the devices people use every day against the latest threats. The centerpiece of the new portfolio is a next-generation anti-malware engine that offers more efficient and effective detection by offloading analysis to the cloud. In addition, McAfee AntiVirus Plus, McAfee Internet Security, McAfee Total Protection and McAfee LiveSafe offer key cross-device enhancements that make it even easier for users to protect their digital lives.
According to the McAfee Labs Threats Report: June 2016, new ransomware has increased 120 percent since Q1 of 2015 and more than 4.7 billion records have been stolen since 2013, highlighting the need for consumers to keep security top of mind as cybercriminals use increasingly sophisticated attack methods. With most consumers owning more than three connected devices, and the increased volume of threats, it has become critical to implement security measures to protect their data, especially as more devices are cloud-connected.
“People are enjoying more and more connected devices as part of everyday life – in their homes, in their cars and even in the things they wear,” said John Giamatteo, corporate vice president and general manager at Intel Security. “This wave of new connectivity is exciting, and a reminder that security is more important than ever. We know our customers need solutions that protect their digital lives, particularly as connectivity continues to rise and threats continue to evolve. We’re dedicated to delivering innovative products designed to protect all manner of connected devices and the people who use them. Our 2017 lineup demonstrates this level of commitment.”
New Consumer Portfolio Offers Enhanced Protection and Better User Experience
The 2017 McAfee product line provides protection for popular household devices – from PCs to Macs* and smartphones to tablets – and is complemented by a new anti-malware engine to provide a more efficient and effective security solution.
These improvements enable consumers to interact online in a safer and more secure environment, with the ability to manage their security and add new devices from anywhere and at any time.
