McAfee Offers One-Stop Business Security: In 15 Minutes!

McAfee's new Total Protection for Secure Business aims to address the top small and midsized business security concerns and give you the tools to deal with them in 15 minutes a day.

McAfee's new Total Protection for Secure Business aims to address the top small and midsized business security concerns and give you the tools to deal with them in 15 minutes a day.The McAfee product initiative, its ToPS (Total Protection for Secure Business) suite, addresses desktop and server security, data protection and data theft prevention, Web and e-mail security, compliance regulation, auditing and logs, all from the perspective of the small and midsized business whose IT/security resources may be limited at best.

One of the keys to the program that McAfee is touting is its Security In 15 Minutes approach.

According to McAfee, 15 minutes a day -- an hour or so a week -- is about all most small and midsized businesses have available for addressing security concerns, needs and applications.

By automating the most common security procedures, and providing users with straightforward guides to which procedures need to be run daily, weekly, monthly and so on, the company hopes to reach small and midsized businesses in the realities in which they live: their pitch isn't just the quality of their products, it's also their understanding of the resources you have to apply to security products and services (whether McAfee's or not.)

ToPS just launched today: it's far too soon to tell if the approach will work. But McAfee's recognition not only of the threat environment in which your business must function but also the limitations of time, money and personnel you're able to devote to the environment makes it worth a look:
