McAfee and Amazon Business Prime Partner to Protect Small Business Owners Online
McAfee’s comprehensive device protection offer with added IT support solves small business challenges
McAfee Corp. announced a partnership with Amazon Business to provide an exclusive security software and IT services bundle for Business Prime members, specifically to support owners of small to medium size operations (SMBs). The bundle will include comprehensive solutions that protect sensitive data via email, offer web and firewall protection, offer mobile VPN, and safeguards all devices from malware and the latest online threats.
“Small business owners and consumers alike are operating in an ever-connected world, and McAfee is dedicated to protecting them online when they shop, bank, share and journey across the internet”
In an increasingly digitized world, small businesses are targeted by hackers because they often lack the resources to prepare and address cyber threats, both from a budgetary and staffing perspective. The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 43% of breaches involved small businesses, and it has proven to be challenging for small business to recover. It isn’t always the impact on finances that are hard for small businesses to recover from – it is also their reputation that is damaged, and their customers take note when their personal information is compromised.

“Small business owners and consumers alike are operating in an ever-connected world, and McAfee is dedicated to protecting them online when they shop, bank, share and journey across the internet,” said Terry Hicks, Executive Vice President of McAfee’s Consumer Business Group. “Through our partnership with Amazon Business, we designed a security solution with small business owners in mind to give them peace of mind that their personal data, as well as their customers’, won’t be jeopardized online.”
The new McAfee security software and IT services bundle for Business Prime members will provide protection for varying number of PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices to fit specific business size and needs. The flexible licensing option allows owners to add up to 25 devices, giving them the option to adjust as their business grows to ensure that all employees stay protected. SMB owners will also have access to 24/7 virus removal service with added IT resolution services to ensure businesses are always protected, secure and functioning efficiently.
