McAfee offers solutions to safeguard different kinds of computing devices against various online threats.
In 1987, McAfee Associates (named after founder John McAfee) began developing data protection solutions. Then, in 1992 Network General and McAfee Associates merged to become Network Associates. However, mid-2014, the company returned to its original name, McAffee, to reflect its return to developing data security technology.
In August 2010, Intel announced its plan to buy McAfee and in January 2014 the company changed its name to Intel Security. The company’s distinct red shield logo remains, and it now operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intel. Under the Intel umbrella, McAffee has continued to offer competitive antivirus offerings for customers – personal, business and corporate.
