McAfee Corporation, global computer security software firm, reportedly announced a partnership with Amazon Business. The deal will support small to medium size business (SMBs) owners having Business Prime membership through a bundle of IT services and exclusive security software.

Sources with relevant information stated that the bundle includes a complete solution that will safeguard the sensitive information via email, provide mobile VPN, firewall, and web protection, as well as protect all devices from online threats and malware.

With increasing digitalization, small businesses are impelled to establish an online presence, which makes them vulnerable to attacks by hackers, as these businesses lack resources such as staff and budget, to safeguard themselves from cyber-attacks.

As per reliable sources, 43% of total data breaches involved small firms, and it is proven to be difficult for small businesses to recover from such attacks. Cyber-attacks not only do harm the businesses financially, but they also malign their reputation when the client information is compromised.

Terry Hicks, McAfee Consumer Business Group’s Executive Vice President mentioned in a comment that McAfee is focused on safeguarding small business owners and their customers operating in this digital world, when they share, bank, or shop online. He further added that with Amazon Business they have designed a security solution for small business owners in order to efficiently safeguard their as well as their client’s personal data.

For Business Prime members, the latest McAfee security software and IT services bundle will deliver protection for Android, PCs, iOS, and Macs devices to suite the business requirements and sizes. The flexible licensing choice enables owners to add up to 25 devices, allowing them to make adjustments as their business expands to ensure the safety of all staff members.
