McAfee Reveals 'OneCare' Competitor

McAfee announced today an all in one security subscription service codenamed Falcon. Falcon will contain all major security suite components as well as PC backup and tune up tools. It's essentially a competitor to Microsoft's Windows OneCare, expected soon, and Symantec's Genesis (also a codename), due out this fall. In fact, with a beta due out in a few weeks and an expected summer launch, McAfee may beat Symantec out of the gate.

"We know from our research and relationship with millions of consumers that PC security is confusing and complex to them," said Marc Solomon, Director of Product Management, McAfee Consumer. "With the launch of 'Falcon' this summer, we have integrated into our award-winning products powerful, yet easy to use protection that addresses both existing and emerging threats. For the consumer, we not only continue to stop the bad guys in their tracks but we will even be able sniff out and stop suspicious activity. 'Falcon' builds upon McAfee's leadership in making great security and protection nearly transparent to the user and takes consumer security to an entirely new level." - McAfee Reveals 'OneCare' Competitor
