PCMag Awards McAfee All Access its Editors’ Choice

SANTA CLARA, Calif., 5 January 2012 - McAfee today announced that McAfee All Access, the first of its kind cross-device security product, has been awarded Editors’ Choice by PCMag. In its review, PCMag gave McAfee All Access 4.5 out of 5 stars and praised the product for providing impressively comprehensive protection for all of the devices that an individual or a household owns.

“At PCMag we've long advised our readers to choose an all-in-one security suite rather than piecing together separate protection components that might not play well together,” cited PCMag editors. “McAfee All Access takes that concept to the next level.”

“As individuals and families expand their digital lives using a wider range of device types, McAfee All Access empowers them to do so with the confidence that their online experiences are safe and their digital assets are secure,” said Todd Gebhart, co-president at McAfee. “By awarding McAfee All Access top honors, PCMag reinforces the importance and value of delivering optimal security to consumers no matter where they connect online.”

In contrast to traditional consumer security products that only offer per device subscriptions, McAfee All Access is the first solution that uniquely protects all of the PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets owned by an individual or household. By providing consumers with a simple, cost-effective means to holistically safeguard all of their devices, McAfee All Access also represents a fundamental shift in the way consumers think about and purchase security. From a central console users can download, activate and manage essential protections enabling them to safeguard:

  • Data – with backup and restore capabilities on tablets and smartphones, and remote lock, locate and wipe functions on mobile devices.

  • Online activity – enables users to safely browse, search and share online with anti-phishing, email, IM protection and risky website blocking.

  • Against malware – includes antimalware protection, including antivirus, antispyware and firewall, for wireless networks.

  • Kids and teens online> – allows parents to filter inappropriate content including YouTube videos and explicit music lyrics, and monitor social network use.

Priced at $99.99 for individuals and $149.99 for households, McAfee All Access offers a substantial cost-savings—as much as $200—when compared to purchasing individual security and data protection products for each device consumers own. Free customer support available 24 hours a day is also included. To learn more, please visit www.mcafee.com/allaccess.
