A week after the Kaspersky One announcement, McAfee announced the availability of cross-device security solution that protects Internet-connected devices. McAfee All Access is a new category of protection that enables consumers to secure smartphones, tablets, netbooks, PCs, and Macs with the optimal level of security protection for each device.
McAfee All Access costs $99.99 for individuals and $149.99 for the household version. This represents a substantial cost-savings—as much as $200—when compared to the cost of individual security and data protection for multiple devices. Free lifetime support is also included.
From one console, McAfee All Access allows consumers and families to quickly install, activate and manage essential protection for data, Internet activities, computer systems, and kids:
Protect Data – Backup and restore data on smartphones, tablets and PCs. Remotely locate, lock and wipe mobile devices. Misplaced smartphone at home? Make it “scream” to easily find it.
Safeguard Internet Activities – Block risky sites. Safely share content. Protect email and IM.
Secure Consumers’ Systems – Anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall protects against malware and hackers. Wireless Internet at home is also protected.
Monitor Kids and Teens – Parents can supervise kids’ activities including Internet and social network use, or actively filter inappropriate content including YouTube videos and explicit music lyrics.
“Most consumer households now own a combination of PCs, Macs, and mobile devices, but haven’t kept up-to-date by adequately protecting all of them,” said Todd Gebhart, co-president of McAfee. “As consumers become more aware of the threats to their connected devices and the need to protect them, cost and complexity often keep them from doing so. McAfee All Access changes that by providing around-the-clock, worry-free protection wherever users connect, and at a price point that makes sense in today’s multi-device world.”
