McAfee which was acquired by chip maker Intel and try to re-brand it as Intel Security. But recently McAfee again start working as independent company under the brand McAfee after Intel sold it to TPG capital, Still Intel hold the 49% equity in the venture. So we are seeing some major changes to the McAfee products line this year.
As we are seeing that McAfee is offering only its top notch products McAfee Total protection and McAfee LiveSafe on its official website and we didn’t found other products like McAfee Antivirus, Internet Security, Family Protection etc. Because we didn’t found officially, So we supposed that these products has been discontinued by the McAfee. If this is true then McAfee is the second company after Norton doing so. Norton had also discontinued all its products and start just providing a single Norton security product for all users.
McAfee is now offering only the Total Protection and Live Safe products instead of lots of other confusing products.
As per my thinking it is true that antivirus only products are of no use these days and every company should have to follow this practice. It clears the confusion between users while they go to buy a security product. So now we can say that McAfee will give a tough competition in 2018 to the Norton Security.
