McAfee, Inc. Provide a Suite of Security Services to Safeguard Bulldog Broadband 8 MB Customers

SLOUGH, England, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- McAfee, Inc. , the leader in Intrusion Prevention and Risk Management solutions, today announced a partnership with Bulldog Communications, the UK market innovator in broadband and telephony services, to protect its 8 MB internet access customers from viruses, hackers, identity theft and spam. Available immediately, almost a third of UK homes now have the chance to download a FREE 90-day trial copy of McAfee(R) Internet Security Suite 2006 via the Bulldog @ctive service.

Jonathan Lishawa, Service Development at Bulldog, said, "We chose McAfee's Internet Security Suite not only because of its award-winning levels of protection, ease of use and speed of response to new threats, but also because of the complete security it offers our home users while online. As a security conscious broadband provider, we want to offer customers the ability to protect their families and personal information while using the Internet. At the same time, we want to offer a solution that can protect their home PCs and be flexible enough to keep up with customers' changing needs."

"The internet is an increasingly hazardous place for the unsuspecting," said Sue Alexander, European consumer sales director at McAfee. "We're seeing unprecedented levels of activity aimed at relieving the naive home PC user of credit card details and sensitive personal information. What Bulldog is doing in terms of changing the landscape of broadband, giving more people the opportunity to have super fast Net access, is great for consumers. Where we fit in is giving these people the chance to use this increased speed and access with greater confidence."

All new and existing @ctive customers will get a free 90 day trial of this award-winning McAfee software, meaning customers can surf, shop, download and email with total confidence. McAfee Internet Security Suite will help to safeguard personal data, prevent viruses and spyware, block unauthorised access, filter-out spam and junk mail, all in one integrated package. It can be downloaded via the "My Account" section of the Bulldog website. At the end of the trial period, customers will be asked if they would like to continue using the service at the cost of only pounds sterling 3.00/mth.

McAfee Internet Security Suite helps prevent access and damage to irreplaceable documents, such as digital photos, family movies, and personal financial data. Internet Security Suite protects against viruses, spyware, hackers, and "phishing" scams that may result in lost files, identity theft, and poor PC performance. The program also prohibits unauthorized access to and from the Internet, blocks unwanted or persistent pop-up ads, manages cookies, and filters unwanted and offensive Internet and e-mail content. With automated, daily updates, Internet Security Suite is a comprehensive, multi- layered security solution that protects consumers' most important digital files and personal information from the latest security threats.
