McAfee offers Total Protection beta

Repels viruses, spyware and plaque

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

McAfee subtly slipped out betas of its latest security products last week ahead of their full launch later this summer.

The security firm is pitching Falcon, otherwise known as Total Protection, as its “most complete” threat protection service. It is touting it as a prophylactic for ID theft, phishing scams and spyware. It’ll also protect your kids against offensive content, declutter your PC and will, presumably, inspect your dog for fleas and check the freshness of your breath if it gets the chance.

If you like to live on the edge, you can opt for the latest beta for McAfee VirusScan Plus which offers the usual virus protection measures as well as blocking and removing spyware, monitoring internet activity and shielding against hackers.

McAfee also outlined further products it plans to release later this year, including McAfee PC Protection and McAfee Internet Security Suite.

More details of all the above at the firm's website. ®
