New McAfee suites aimed at protecting SMBs

  • Cybercriminals tend to focus on targets with weakest security
  • Customised protection against new malware and exploits

New McAfee suites aimed at protecting SMBsSECURITY specialist McAfee has announced a new line of software suites that it said provide small and medium businesses (SMBs) with a flexible and cost-effective way to safeguard both their data and devices.
 
McAfee Small Business Security suite is optimised for businesses with up to 25 devices. For larger businesses, with up to 250 devices, McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential for SMB and McAfee Endpoint Protection Advanced for SMB are designed to protect devices and data while offering new cloud capabilities for additional management options.
 
These suites will also help businesses improve user productivity, while providing protection against malware and exploits, McAfee said in a statement.
 
Today’s cybercriminals, like bullies, tend to focus on the easiest targets with the weakest security resources to steal precious data and potentially infiltrate larger enterprises. Small businesses often lack IT resources, but are faced with the same security issues as large corporations who have specialised IT teams, the company said.
 
To defend against cybercriminals, McAfee offers commercial-grade SMBs security solutions to extend seamlessly across devices and data.
 
“Nearly every day we hear about data breaches affecting some of the world’s largest and well-known brands,” said Candace Worley, senior vice president and general manager of Endpoint Security at McAfee, part of Intel Security.
 
“What often gets overlooked are the small Main Street businesses that are plagued with the same security issues, but often with far more devastating consequences,” she added.
