If you are referring to Plusnet Protect Powered By McAfee then "You can add Plusnet Protect in the Member Centre on our Add-Ons page."

It is not a good idea to put all your trust in McAfee Internet Security or the other McAfee  anti-malware products. Compared with Kaspersky Internet Security or even the venerable Norton/Symantec equivalents, its ability to identify malware is poor.

Few would agree with that assessment....

Mcafee has a long history of being a sound product. In my experience Norton creates as many problems as it claims to fix.

Jim,

I speak from the experience of working for a major international IT firm. We used McAfee for years with no real issues. Then some accountant bod secured a cheaper deal with Norton ... and all hell broke out.

Re: Regard mcafee

So you are comparing the Business Version and the Consumer version is rather different

I suggest you look at the independent tests - the link you showed and mine - and McAfee has been going downhill for many years

Symantec used to be a resource hog but they sorted that out a few years ago

"I speak from the experience of working for a major international IT firm. "

Then you will also be aware that, in addition to PC-based anti-malware programs, businesses run hardened security appliances on the periphery of their network. If they run a DMZ that contains public-facing web servers and email servers, they may run two appliances (or two farms of appliances) - one to protect their public-facing services and one on the inward side of the DMZ to protect their internal users.

They usually run a hardened version of a UNIX variant or a special purpose operating system

McAfee sell security appliances, and one hopes that they are more secure than their PC-based brethren.
