Press Release   •   Sep 23, 2014 10:00 +08

SANTA CLARA, Calif. / SINGAPORE – Sep 23, 2014 – Today McAfee, part of Intel Security, announced its availability of 2015 consumer security suites, with improved protection to safeguard consumers’ ever-evolving digital lives. The new product line includes McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015, McAfee Internet Security 2015, McAfee Total Protection 2015, and the McAfee LiveSafe™ 2015 service that protects a customer’s data and identity across all the PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets they own.

To provide comprehensive security for all customers, McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015, McAfee Internet Security 2015, McAfee Total Protection 2015 and McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service include improved malware protection and an optimized user experience. McAfee recently upgraded its malware detection engine to improve detection and device performance helping to protect consumers against today’s advanced threats. Also, the cross-device product includes the ability to easily add additional devices for protection with just one click.

Additionally, McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service represents the next generation of cross-device protection for consumers to help keep their devices, personal data and identity secure. As the first security suite to include cutting-edge voice and facial recognition authentication, users can safely store sensitive and personal information such as wills, deeds and passports in a secure cloud storage vault. McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service also includes a cloud-based password manager so users can easily manage their online passwords.

According to a recent global McAfee study, Future of Technology: 2025 which surveyed consumers from twelve countries, the average household owns three to seven devices, and it predicts that number will almost double in the next decade. Today, and increasingly in the future, an unprecedented amount of private and personally identifiable data is and will be collected and distributed, especially as more consumers move to using connected appliances and wearable. With this comes increased risk for a host of sophisticated attacks and scams. Given these findings, McAfee continues to deliver new and improved products to meet the growing needs of consumers as they spend more time on connected devices.

“The technologies consumers look forward to having in the future will be even more connected with each other. Security measures would then have to develop accordingly to keep users protected at all times,” said David Freer, Vice President, Consumer, APAC, McAfee, Part of Intel Security. “Because of this, we continue to innovate so that we can protect consumers as they go about their digital lives across their many devices."
