McAfee has launched its 2015 consumer security suites with improved protection to safeguard consumers' digital lives, the computer security company announced today (September 23, 2014).

The new product line includes McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015, McAfee Internet Security 2015, McAfee Total Protection 2015, and the McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service that protects a customer's data and identity across all the PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets they own.

According to McAfee, this new security suite offers improved malware protection and an optimised user experience. In fact, the company recently upgraded its malware detection engine to improve detection and device performance to protect consumers against today's advanced threats. Also, the cross-device product includes the ability to easily add additional devices for protection with just one click.

Additionally, McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service represents the next generation of cross-device protection for consumers to help keep their devices, personal data and identity secure. As the first security suite to include voice and facial recognition authentication, users can safely store sensitive and personal information such as wills, deeds and passports in a secure cloud storage vault. McAfee LiveSafe 2015 service also includes a cloud-based password manager so users can easily manage their online passwords.

"The technologies consumers look forward to having in the future will be even more connected with each other. Security measures would then have to develop accordingly to keep users protected at all times," said David Freer, Vice President, Consumer, APAC, McAfee, Part of Intel Security. "Because of this, we continue to innovate so that we can protect consumers as they go about their digital lives across their many devices."
