Network Associates has recorded a 68% increase in the total number of business and consumer desktops protected by its McAfee online security solutions worldwide, according to IDC. The analyst firm's figures also show that McAfee accounts for73% of the managed service antivirus market and protects 4.1 million desktops globally.

"McAfee solutions form the backbone of virus protection for small to medium-size businesses and consumers globally," says Patrick Hayati, regional director of Network Associates in the Middle East.

"[They] provide a proven security solution that can be deployed and delivered online," he adds.

The security company hopes to grow its market share yet further. As such, it will turn to its wide range of McAfee solutions, which include McAfee VirusScan Online, McAfee Privacy Service and McAfee Personal Firewall. Users of McAfee Consumer services also get access to the McAfee SecurityCentre, an innovative set of security tools to alert and inform users about real-time Internet threats.

"Monitoring, management and round-the-clock access to support provides assurance of full protection from new threats and vulnerabilities. Our online services address the growing demand from enterprises looking to outsource and reduce the cost of maintaining network security," Hayati says.
