McAfee Boosts Security Tool
McAfee (NYSE:MFE) has unveiled a new service that will create a more secure Internet experience consumers and small businesses. Available this summer, the Secure Search Service will deliver a safer online search experience by eliminating risky sites from search results.
The new service enables users to avoid malicious sites that take advantage of security holes in the browser. It also helps avoid downloads that contain spyware, viruses, or adware; phishing sites; sites that display pop-up windows or change the browser's default settings without consent; and sites that send high volumes of e-mail.
"The McAfee Secure Search Service and McAfee Secure for Web Sites are important extensions to our Web security offerings that build upon our highly successful SiteAdvisor safe search product that has already had more than 134 million downloads," Todd Gebhart, senior vice president and general manager of McAfee's consumer, Web, small and mobile business.
