McAfee Firewall software builds a protective barrier around your computer to secure and defend it from Internet hazards, such as hackers trying to steal private information. It filters both inbound and outbound communications between your computer and the outside world. The firewall offers several options for logging and tracking, depending upon how detailed your needs are. You can log all connections and connection attempts in the log file and review it later for security and auditing purposes. It protects both dial-up and direct Internet connections, such as DSL or cable modem. This ensures that no matter how you're connected to the Internet, your system remains secure. McAfee Firewall technology offers versatility without undermining security.
McAfee VirusScan technology detects destructive ActiveX and Java applets, which are often downloaded without your knowledge while you're browsing. The VirusScan's e-mail x-ray feature catches viruses in Internet mail even before new messages have been opened. It supports cc:Mail, Eudora, Microsoft Exchange, and Outlook. You can safely and easily isolate infected and suspicious files in a protected area on your computer. By quarantining an infected file you can take the time to repair it without worrying about spreading the infection to other files on your system or e-mailing it to friends, family, and coworkers. You can even submit a suspicious file to McAfee AVERT Labs for testing and personalized diagnosis.
