AOL UK Offers McAfee Virus Protection
By: MarkJ - 18 August, 2004 (2:27 PM)

We seem to be having just as much news today as torrential rain outside. ISP AOL UK has teamed up with AV firm McAfee to offers its customer’s always-on and up-to-date protection against viruses:

AOL and McAfee, Inc. launch premium virus protection for UK members

AOL, the leading online interactive services provider to the UK, and McAfee, Inc., the leading provider of intrusion prevention solutions, today announced a new premium service, which will provide always-on and up-to-date protection against thousands of known viruses, Trojans, and worms to AOL members who subscribe to the service.

McAfee® VirusScan® Online - Brought to you by AOL offers easy-to-use virus protection that enables AOL members in the UK to have a safer and more secure online experience. Always vigilant and continuously updated when members go online, the McAfee premium service offers PC-based protection that helps guard files against infection or corruption whether the AOL member is online or not.

The new service, which is installed on the member’s desktop, goes beyond email protection to guard against infection from peer-to-peer file sharing, Web site downloads, infected CD-ROMs and disks, multimedia files, and more. AOL already scans email attachments members send or receive for possible viruses and other threats as a benefit of membership.

McAfee VirusScan Online - Brought to you by AOL helps ensure that subscribers have the latest anti-virus protection by delivering regular and automatic updates every time they connect to the Internet - providing the peace-of-mind of knowing they’re protected from known viruses, while freeing them from the hassle of downloading anti-virus upgrades themselves.

At launch, McAfee VirusScan Online - Brought to you by AOL is available to AOL members for £2.49 a month. For a limited time, new and existing AOL members can try the premium virus protection service at no cost for a one-month introductory period. To sign up or to learn more, AOL members can visit AOL Keyword: VirusScan Online.

AOL® Broadband members in the UK can already take advantage of McAfee® Personal Firewall Plus software to give them greater protection online at no extra cost. Broadband Internet connections can be targeted by hackers or Trojan viruses, which try to seize control of computers. With McAfee Personal Firewall Plus, attempts to access personal data or other intrusions are monitored and blocked.
