McAfee unveils 2014 line of core PC security suites
McAfee has announced its new 2014 line of core PC security suites promising increased power and performance with a lighter and faster footprint.
The new product line includes McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014, McAfee Internet Security 2014 and McAfee Total Protection 2014.
The enhancements to PC protection are also utilized in a recently released version of McAfee LiveSafe service, a cross-device solution that comprehensively protects consumers’ data, identity and all of their PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets.
Introduced in May 2013, McAfee LiveSafe includes Personal Locker, a feature that uses face and voice authentication technology to retrieve a user’s most sensitive personal information and documents, such as copies of passports and IDs, from a secure online location.
In addition to protecting consumers from the latest online viruses and threats, McAfee LiveSafe service also offers simplified and automated management of usernames and passwords, privacy protection for smartphone and tablets, as well as premium customer support.
McAfee’s 2014 PC products also include enhancements to the recently upgraded malware scanning engine – McAfee AM Core – offering increased detection capabilities to protect against today’s most advanced threats.
The new engine provides fast and efficient scanning and real-time intelligence to help dynamically defend against the latest digital dangers, including zero-day threats, keyloggers, and Trojans, while minimizing the impact on users’ systems.
The product includes components designed to improve scanning speed by reducing the size of threat signature files and better CPU utilization.
McAfee also recently updated its award-winning McAfee Mobile Security product with new, cutting-edge privacy features including the Multi-user App Profile function that allows consumers to create multiple user profiles or “safe zones” on one device with customized or restricted access to apps.
The new version also features the option to choose between a basic or premium version. McAfee Mobile Security basic offers baseline protection for mobile devices at no cost, while the premium version provides a full range of security and best-in-class privacy features, McAfee said.
