    Source: McAfee on its own as independent security vendor

    Effective today, McAfee has officially spun out from Intel, dumping the name Intel Security and operating under new majority ownership that has deep pockets to help the company aggressively acquire technology via mergers and acquisitions to supplement home-grown innovations.

    Investment firm TPG is making a $1.1 billion equity investment in McAfee in return for 51% ownership, giving it the cash it needs to buy companies for their technology so it can be incorporated faster into McAfee platforms than if developed via R&D.

    That’s a different strategy than is used by Intel in its chip business. “Identifying what it takes to run a semiconductor company is quite different from running a cybersecurity company in a rapidly changing threat landscape,” says Intel Security’s CTO Steve Grobman.

    Well this caught my eye.

    Interesting to see where this firm will take McAfee.

    New Logo and Web design for their Homepage and Business services. Home products still display the Intel logo.

    Intel has been erased. :p

    New McAfee Brand - Together is power - New McAfee
    A letter from the CEO - Welcome to McAfee
    "Today, a new McAfee is born. One that promises customers cybersecurity outcomes, not fragmented products."

    Could McAfee make a difference, or make a comeback to the Home product users?

    HI Spawn I not sure if Mcafee will because their home products don't have a behaviour blocker they have always just been a basic virus scanner and you need more these days.

    Interesting that they would go back to the McAfee name after trying to distance themselves from John McAfee...

    McAfee's signatures always seem to pick up a lot of the samples from the Malware Hub on virus total. They seem to get pretty much everything on there.

    I am using the brand new Mcafee. It is improved and much lighter on system resources. The best part is the unlimited devices license. Mcafee will fight in the competition soon, I assure you.

    yesterday i cleaned my friend's pc with
    1.HMP(found 16),
    2.Zemana(found something 4 or 5)
    3. MB(found 131)
    he has fully updated genuine windows + MAV plus
    So i cannot comment about Mcafee capability
    but i found it to be very fast compared to kaspersky

    It says more about the user than about the product :)

    Really bad that your friend's PC was infected. Could you please specify the types of infections? PUPs? Performance is what I like the most about Mcafee.

    I think he might be eligible for the Mcafee promise. He should contact Mcafee support and one of their agents will clean the system and if they fail, they will issue a full refund.
