McAfee, a US-based software development company that offers all-in-one protection with personal info removal, identity monitoring, VP, antivirus, ad more services has expanded its partnership Visa, a global leader in digital payments that allows Visa partners in the UK to provide online protection solutions to cardholders of Visa Business.

Pedro Gutierrez, SVP Global Consumer Sales & Operations at McAfee, commented, “With increasingly complicated global issues such as the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and difficulties stemming from the global supply chain, small businesses are increasingly reliant on their digital infrastructure, and it’s never been more important to ensure the proper protections have been implemented. We are proud to partner with Visa to offer solutions to their Visa Business cardholders and look forward to helping these organizations stay secure so they can focus on what matters most to their business.”

According to the Verizon Business 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, small businesses will make up more than half of the data breaches in 2021, making them a prime target for hackers in a world that is becoming more and more digital. Small business owners are frequently unable to fully protect themselves and their clients from the rise in online threats due to a lack of financial and human resources. The increase in attacks highlights the necessity for small businesses to take precautions to protect their digital assets from the most recent dangers impacting businesses today.

According to the size and requirements of each business, the McAfee security solution will offer protection for a different number of PCs, Macs, iOS, and Android devices.

Helen Jones, Head of Visa Business Solutions, Visa, Europe, stated, “With more of us embracing digital commerce, businesses of all sizes deserve access to simple, secure and robust systems. Visa is focused on investing in its network, harnessing the most cutting-edge innovations to protect people and businesses from emerging threats. And with this offer, Visa Business cardholders can access McAfee Total Protection for additional peace of mind.”
