McAfee Unveils All-in-one 'All Access' Security Suite

Intel owned security software firm McAfee has beaten its competition to dish out the first all-in-one security solution, which covers all the devices owned by the user.

The company managed to release the product before Kaspersky and Norton. The Kaspersky One will be launching in October while the Norton offering will be launched in 2012.

The McAfee All Access has been designed to protect all the devices owned by the user, be it desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablet devices, under a single license.

“We’re excited to launch McAfee All Access today to meet increasing consumer demand for a single solution that safeguards users’ internet-connected devices and protects their digital lifestyles,” said Todd Gebhart, co-president of McAfee.

“Users now have the protection they need without having to make buying decisions for each and every one of their devices - or go through the hassle of dealing with individual licenses each time they want to add or eliminate a device.” he added.

The software, which comes with remote lock and wipe capabilities for smartphones, is available in two versions, Individuals and Household. The Individual version costs $99 per year and covers all the devices owned by the user while the Household version, which costs $149 per year, covers all the devices owned by every member of the household, up to 5 users.
