McAfee Total Protection 2011

PC Magazine
24 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Compared with McAfee's antivirus, the McAfee suite adds accurate spam filtering, ineffective parental control, an encrypted file "vault", and enhancements to several existing features. McAfee fans who want all of those additions may choose it; others will go for the feature-packed antivirus or for a suite like Norton that's consistently high-performing.
  • Pros: Scored well in malware blocking tests. Network management adds intrusion detection. SiteAdvisor Plus protects from phishing and malicious sites. Very good spam filtering. Low impact on performance. Offers tune-up, secure deletion, encrypted file "vault".
  • Cons: Malware balked one installation in testing. Simplistic firewall. Rudimentary parental control is not browser-independent. In testing, did not remove all detected malware.

McAfee Total Protection 2010

PC Magazine
24 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The latest McAfee suite has a brand-new user-friendly interface and a much smaller impact on performance than its predecessor. It's better in almost every area, though parental control is still weak. What it needs now is a bulletproof installer and even better malware cleanup.
  • Pros: Pleasant, streamlined interface. Network map with intruder alert, remote repair. Fast, accurate antispam. SiteAdvisor toolbar includes very good phishing protection. Very good malware blocking. Small performance impact. Online backup from Mozy.
  • Cons: Serious problems installing on malware-infested systems. Limited parental control system is not browser-independent.

  • Pros: New interface, Overhauled performance
  • Cons: Not clear enough that running a full scan when installing will significantly speed up later scans, Not much easily accessible live support

Expert Review

Good Gear Guide.au
2 February 2010
  • Summary: The range of tools and the high level of protection offered by McAfee Total Protection 2008 is impressive -- it has powerful antivirus and very good spam protection. The parental controls and SiteAdvisor+ are excellent. It's also easy to use. However, at $129.95 it's a fairly expensive proposition, so you'll need to be sure you're going to use most of its features.
  • Pros: High level of protection, excellent parental controls and SiteAdvisor+
  • Cons: Installation takes long, expensive

McAfee Total Protection Service, why hosting is a godsend for small business

iTnews Australia
23 March 2009
  • Excerpt: We've been big fans of McAfee's Total Protection Service ever since it launched. Where most other small business solutions require you to install your own Web server for management purposes, McAfee actually hosts the service for you, making the job of setting up and administering the security systems vastly easier. It makes it perfect for small businesses that don't run their own servers.
