McAfee Antivirus Plus is designed for home users to protect each and every one of their devices. The software employs a vast database of threats including viruses, Trojans, Spyware, and botnets. The protection expands further on the firewall which not many of the antivirus software companies have. The software monitors web traffic, email messages, as well as monitoring external devices.
More Information on McAfee Antivirus Plus 2017:
As vast as the database may be, McAfee doesn’t score high in threat tests as much as other antivirus software companies. The threats such as rootkits are passing the McAfee Antivirus Plus. The research shows that almost 10% of threats are never registered by McAfee software. On the other hand, the company integrates firewall within the antivirus, which not many companies have. The firewall is the first line of defense and therefore a very important segment. The antivirus software employs cleaning utility for getting rid of junk and temporary files. But the more robust feature is file shredder, useful when you wish to really permanently remove any trace of your data or files from the device. Although Web and Email protection does exist, the websites infected with phishing scams were not successfully registered by antivirus. However, the integrated vulnerability scanner, allows the user to check for new updates on any software installed on the device. For more thorough protection users will have to employ versions like McAfee Internet Protection and McAfee Total Protection.
