McAfee, Visa expand partnership to offer online protection software

Leading computer security software company, McAfee has announced the expansion of its partnership with Visa, a world leader in digital payments, to allow Visa partners in the U.K. to provide award-winning online protection solutions to Visa Business cardholders.

The partnership offers a one-year subscription to McAfee Total Protection, enabling the U.K.-based Visa Classic Business cardholders to save up to 50%.

As per the Verizon Business 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, small businesses have become potential targets for hackers, with over 50% of the data breaches in 2021 involving small businesses, on account of the ongoing digitization trends.

Sources claim that small business owners, owing to the lack of resources from the staffing and budgetary standpoint, are not typically equipped to protect their enterprise and customers from the growing threat of online breaches.

Evidently, the surging challenges and risks associated with digitization underpin the need for small businesses to protect their digital assets from current sophisticated threats.

Speaking on the endeavor, Pedro Gutierrez, SVP of Global Consumer Sales & Operations at McAfee, emphasized on the increasingly intricate global issues, including the recent emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the global supply chain.

Gutierrez mentioned that the new challenges are driving small businesses further toward a digital infrastructure.  It was also revealed that through the increasing reliance on digital solutions, implementation of adequate protection has become vital.

With the latest partnership with Visa, McAfee aims to offer solutions to Visa Business cardholders and intends to help organizations strengthen their overall security and focus on crucial business matters.  

Reportedly, McAfee will provide its security solution to protect a wide number of Macs, iOS, PCs, and Android devices based on specific business size and requirements. It will also allow Visa Business cardholders to install protection for 5-10 devices using the one-year McAfee subscription.
