As we kick off the new year, McAfee is optimistic about what the future holds. We protect more than 375 million customers worldwide, and we’re continuing to innovate to bring the best protection possible to people worldwide. Specifically, we’re bringing new solutions and partnerships to the table, which both fuel company growth and strengthen consumer security. Let’s dive in to what those look like.
Solutions for the Modern Threat Landscape
First and foremost, McAfee is continuing to extend security into all facets of consumers’ digital lives with solutions such as McAfee Secure Home Platform, McAfee Safe Family and McAfee Safe Connect. All these offerings can help consumers have peace of mind in an ever-changing digital world fueled by volume, speed and complexity.
Beyond that, we’re also implementing new offerings that help consumers adapt to modern threats. In the wake of recent massive data breaches, McAfee Identity Theft Protection allows users to take a proactive approach to protecting their identities with personal and financial monitoring and recovery tools to help keep their identities personal and secured. With this new solution, we’re aiming to make the digital world a safer place to live, work and play.
New Partnerships Help Consumers Stay Safe
Collaboration is vital in continuing our mission to protect the connected home. To drive connected home device security forward, we worked with D-Link on the new AC2600 Wi-Fi Router Powered by McAfee. The router, which utilizes Intel’s connected home technology, will automatically protect users’ connected home devices. It features parental controls, protection for IoT devices, and real-time monitoring for safer browsing.
More and more, consumers are using their mobile phones to connect to public Wi-Fi, which opens them up to having their personal information accessed by cybercriminals. McAfee’s partners understand this risk and share the collective vision of building security into devices from the start. Samsung Secure Wi-Fi, featuring back-end technology from McAfee, which encrypts personal information during sensitive transaction and online activities, is now also available on the Samsung Galaxy Note8 in the U.K., Germany and France.
Beyond our new collaborations with D-Link and Samsung, McAfee continues to work with industry partners including HP, Dell, Lenovo, LG, Verizon and Telefonica to help secure devices from the start. Given the complexity of the cybersecurity space, we can’t do it alone – and by working with leading companies who share our vision to help protect their customers, we don’t have to. These key partnerships underscore our commitment to industry collaboration and play a vital role in McAfee’s role as an industry leader.
