McAfee Internet Security

LAPTOP Magazine
24 October 2013
  • Excerpt: McAfee Internet Security is an internet security suite, which means that it provides more comprehensive safety features than entry-level antivirus products offer. It does, of course, handle the basics of protecting PCs from malware attacks and removing threats. In fact, McAfee's performance at the antimalware level alone is what places it among the top 10 products in our review. However, it goes beyond basics by also protecting you from sites known to phish.
  • Pros: McAfee Internet Security includes effective parental controls as well as privacy and PC optimization tools.
  • Cons: In spite of its excellent usability and good protection this internet security suite is not the best at repairing computers already lousy with malware.

McAfee Internet Security 2014

PC Magazine
5 October 2013
  • Conclusion: With its smart firewall, effective malware blocking, and accurate spam filter, McAfee Internet Security 2014 can be a good security suite choice. Just don't rely on it for parental control.
  • Pros: CleanBoot rescue CD solved many installation problems. Very good score in our hands-on malware blocking test. SiteAdvisor toolbar identifies and blocks dangerous websites. Smart firewall won't hassle you. Accurate spam filter can even process webmail. Mozy-powered backup. Shredder, remote management, vulnerability scanner, system tuneup.
  • Cons: So-so score in our hands-on malware cleanup test. Antispam processing noticeably slowed email download. Parental control system is limited and awkward.

McAfee protects your Mac without affecting performance

Macworld
25 November 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Mac OS X users are notably resistant to the ploys of anti-virus, anti-malware, and security-monitoring software offered for our platform. “What—me worry?” could be our motto, as well as, “Not paying for that!” Over the long haul, that attitude has served us well, but the nature and diversity of risks has increased, and is likely to get worse.

McAfee Internet Security 2013

PC Magazine
26 January 2010
  • Conclusion: McAfee Internet Security 2013 includes just about every feature you might imagine in a security suite. Its SiteAdvisor technology earned a new high score in phishing detection, but its antivirus protection is just average. Effectiveness of the other components also varies.
  • Pros: Best-yet scores in phishing detection. SiteAdvisor toolbar marks dangerous links in search results and social pages. Includes PC cleanup, vulnerability scan, secure deletion. Spam filter handles POP3, IMAP, Exchange, even Web-based email. Parental control filters HTTPS sites. Mozy-powered online backup.
  • Cons: Difficult install on infested test systems. So-so malware removal in PCMag's and independent tests. Limited parental control can't handle Administrator accounts. Surprising impact on system performance.

McAfee Internet Security Suite 2006

PC Magazine
7 June 2009
  • Conclusion: McAfee Internet Security Suite's privacy, antispam, and firewall modules are decent, but they don't shine like the excellent VirusScan module. VirusScan also does a great job blocking PUPs (spyware) and includes features to protect against zero-day attacks. If you're using any of the standalone modules, consider moving up to the full suite.
  • Pros: Easy to use and well integrated. Antivirus includes zero-day protection features and successfully blocked PUPs (spyware) in testing. Database of known programs reduces firewall pop-ups. Firewall can trace intrusions on world map.
  • Cons: Antispam can slow POP3 download and isn't the most accurate on the market. No easy access to log of repaired or deleted viruses. Firewall doesn't protect against leak-test techniques.

McAfee Internet Security Suite 2009 is the latest iteration of security giant McAfee's internet security suite, featuring Artemis, a new internet-based malware detection feature.

Good Gear Guide.au
23 August 2009
  • Summary: You'll find a wide array of features in McAfee Internet Security Suite 2009, including backups, parental controls and antispam, along with smaller offerings such as a file shredder. And the suite did a decent job at detecting malicious software in tests. But for protecting your PC, you have superior alternatives.
  • Pros: Wide array of features
  • Cons: Doesn't quite compare to the score of about 99 percent for top performers in AV-Test.org's tests such as the Avira security suite and the Norton security suite
