McAfee Antivirus Review

McAfee Antivirus is a full system security suite consisting of anti-virus, anti-spyware, and a two-way personal firewall. This user-friendly security suite promises high value and continuous protection for PCs connected to the Internet. On top of all that, McAfee claims Total Protection 2009 does it all without slowing down your PC. How does it fare in our testing?

McAfee Antivirus combines several products into one. In addition to McAfee’s anti-virus/anti-spyware, this suite also includes other components such as anti-phishing and identity protection, a two-way personal firewall, and a website advisor tool. McAfee’s network monitoring features alerts users with another computer connects to your network. Parental controls allow for content filtering of popular search engines. McAfee SiteAdvisor warns users of potentially risky websites by color coding them.

Minor features include a Shredder application, which removes all traces of designated files from a PC, a Data Backup tool, which automatically backs up selected files to media, and system maintenance tools

 

McAfee Antivirus Features:

Virus and Malware Protection

The world of viruses and malware (malicious software) continues to grow and has become increasingly complex. Computer hacking has expanded from a few malicious individuals or criminals to wide-spread organizations, governments, and even for-profit businesses. The number and types of security threats have dramatically increased. Today, malware surfaces in a variety of shapes and size, including viruses, worms, rootkits, Trojans, spyware, adware, riskware, and the newest category: ransomware(where a computer is infected, and a fee is demanded before it will be returned to its original state).

McAfee AntiVirus , is part of Intel’s security family of products and services, and is backed by years of experience and resources in the world of virus protection. In addition to McAfee’s own dedicated resources, McAfee is part of a broader network of organizations and individuals who cooperate to identify, isolate, and protect the industry from the myriad of potential malware threats throughout the world. By subscribing to the McAfee AntiVirus Plus service, users gain the benefits and protection of these many resources and players.

Permanent Deletion of Data

Some users may not be aware that when a standard operating system feature is used to delete files from a computer hard drive or from a portable storage device, the date in those files is not actually being completely deleted. Some or all of that data is often still on the hard drive but hidden from a user’s view. Experienced hackers or even criminals using commercially available software can get to those files, undelete them and gain access to the data that the files contain.

As a protective measure, McAfee AntiVirus Plus offers a permanent delete feature for deleting files that may contain sensitive information and data from storage devices. This permanent delete feature uses sophisticated technology that overwrites the file’s contents with random data that will replace the data in the original file. If hackers get the files they do not contain any personal or sensitive information. The permanent delete feature helps users protect themselves from identify and information theft.

Multi-Device Solution

The McAfee AntiVirus  subscription protects an individual’s multiple computers and devices with a single account. This means that an individual can use a single subscription to protect a desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet, and mobile phone. It should be noted that not all of the McAfee AntiVirus Plus features are supported for all devices, so check to see what features and tools are available for the devices that are being used to avoid any surprises.

McAfee AntiVirus  supports Windows and Mac computers and laptops, Android devices (like tablets and mobile phones), and iOS devices (like iPads and iPhones). For Android devices, McAfee AntiVirus Plus provides features like anti-theft, app privacy, data backup, and wireless network protection. For iOS devices, McAfee AntiVirus Plus provides file protection and anti-theft protection. For Macs, it provides firewall and anti-malware protection and a set of “web safety tools.” The anti-theft features for Android and iOS devices vary but usually include the ability to either disable or wipe clean stolen devices remotely (for instance, from the McAfee AntiVirus Plus cloud-based management console), so thieves are unable access any sensitive or personal data on the device.

Cloud-Based Management Console

Since the McAfee AntiVirus Plus service is cloud-based, this makes it possible for a user to manage the service on all of your devices from a secure McAfee AntiVirus Plus internet portal called the “management console.” From the management console, a user can select and view each of the computers and devices that have been registered with the service. Users can also change and customize how the service works on each device from one location.

For example, new devices can be added and devices that are no longer in use can be deleted. Users can change settings on a single device, such as changing the frequency of virus scans on a computer. Users can also update their McAfee AntiVirus Plus account information and handle other account activities, all from one console in the cloud.

No-Charge Technical Support

Included in the subscription to McAfee AntiVirus Plus, is free 24/7 support. The support service can be used to help a user install and start running the program or to help change settings. Support can also answer questions and is available via online chat or email.

In addition to technical support McAfee AntiVirus Plus also offers online documentation, tutorials, and a knowledgebase of information about how to use McAfee AntiVirus Plus on all supported devices. McAfee and Intel also sponsor an online community where users can search for answers to questions and issues, as well as ask specific questions of the community.
