SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - McAfee, Inc.
(NYSE: MFE) - Lackluster consumer confidence in online purchases accounts for the overwhelming majority of terminated transactions. To help boost consumer confidence in purchasing online, McAfee announced today that numerous large
e-retailers have embraced McAfee SECURETM service. Less than a month after it was launched, McAfee SECURE -- the industry's most comprehensive certification service - has been adopted by brands such as PETCO, PC Mall, Footsmart, K-Swiss, Etoys.com and others. These companies understand that displaying the McAfee SECURE Trustmark on their sites is an important step in building consumer trust in shopping online.
"It's clear that our customers have a higher level of confidence in shopping at PETCO.com because we carry the McAfee SECURE Trustmark," said Katie Grisko, e-commerce product manager at PETCO. "McAfee SECURE helps build trust with our customers, which ultimately increases our online sales and brand loyalty."
