McAfee Secure offers a free or a paid pro version of its website security packages. It protects your website from malicious files and hackers, offering your customers identity theft protection, insurance and tools for browsing safely.
As well as offering website protection against malware, viruses and other potentially harmful attacks, McAfeeSECURE also provides you with a trust mark to reassure your customers that their information is protected. This is fairly standard for these website security services, but there are several extras which you may not find elsewhere.
In particular, we were interested in the search engine features on offer here. Through using McAfee SECURE, your website will appear highlighted in search results when visitors use the SiteAdvisor extension. More than 50 million people use this in an attempt to browse the internet more safely, so your website will stand out in a crowd to a significant number of people. In addition, you can compile security reviews of your site from visitors, building up a positive picture of your site’s reliability, which visitors can view.
If your website is just getting off the ground, you may wish to consider the free version of McAfee’s protection services. This allows you to use their certification trust mark for up to 500 visits per month, and to showcase up to 100 reviews using TrustedSite. This is limited, but it means you can test out the basic system without having to pay anything. As your site grows, you can upgrade to the Pro service, which includes unlimited use of the certification trust mark, unlimited reviews, and a range of additional features.
Pro users can take advantage of mobile trust marks and several consumer tools such as a downloadable Chrome extension. McAfee SECURE’s mobile security is particularly important because mobile internet traffic now exceeds PC traffic, and this service works on any device. This is particularly useful if you know that a lot of your sales come from mobile users.
By helping your website to stand out and reassuring customers that it is secure, the Pro package actually helps to improve your sales. McAfeeSecure.com states that websites see an upturn in sales, averaging around 12%, which is quite significant. This ought to help cover at least some of the service fees, hopefully bringing more profit in the long run.
Prices for Pro services depend on the size and function of your website. We tried a few different URLs to get a sense of monthly costs, and they ranged from just $30 per month to several hundred dollars per month, so it’s worth trying this out quickly to see if it suits your budget.
The website offers a number of handy videos to help explain its services, plus you can seek answers in the online FAQ. If those don’t provide the answers you’re looking for, you can get in touch with the customer services or technical teams. You can also keep up to date with progress or notifications from the team on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or the site’s blog pages.
As well as support for websites, individuals can protect their data using McAfee SECURE as they browse and shop. These tools are provided for free, including extensions for mobile phone browsers.
With comprehensive protection, search engine highlighting, identity theft protection and more, McAfeeSECURE has a lot to offer its users. Its free services allow you to try out the most basic features, but as your website becomes more popular you will need to upgrade to a Pro account.
