2014 versions of Antivirus Plus, Internet Security, and Total Protection From McAfee available today

McAfee announced its new 2014 product line of consumer antivirus and security products for the PC platform.

McAfee is also updating the LiveSafe cross-platform security product it announced in the spring. Its has a Web-based central interface for managing all of its functions and protected devices. For Windows PCs and Macs, LiveSafe will offer antivirus, antispyware, and anti-phishing protection, plus a two-way firewall. Identity protection and parental controls will also be available, along with safety ratings for websites.

All of the upgraded products provide some basic protections.

They all use McAfee's AM Core scanning engine (first introduced with the 2013 line) to detect viruses, malware, Trojan horses, and their nefarious ilk in real time.

McAfee’s 2014 PC products provides fast and efficient scanning and real-time intelligence to help dynamically defend against the latest digital dangers, including zero-day threats, keyloggers, and Trojans, while minimising the impact on users’ systems.
Specific product components have also been reengineered in the 2014 line to improve scanning speed by reducing the size of threat signature files and better CPU utilisation. McAfee’s core PC security products have also recently received effectiveness certification by third party testing lab, AV-Test, as well as advanced certification from AV Comparatives in its real-world protection test.

2014 versions of Antivirus Plus, Internet Security, and Total Protection are available for download or retail purchase starting today.

McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014 is priced at $34.99 for one year of protection for one PC. McAfee Internet Security 2014 costs $55.99 for use on up to three computers, and McAfee Total Protection 2014 costs $89.99 for use on up to three computers.
