Four simple ways to work securely with McAfee Multi Access

Paying close attention to security is essential to running a successful business, especially in an age when vital information is stored across a variety of digital devices. Thanks to security apps such as McAfee Multi Access from O2, it’s possible to enjoy the best protection and work securely, with minimum effort. Here are just some of the ways it can help keep your business watertight, so you can concentrate on the important stuff without having to worrying

  1. Automated installation for each device

If all of your devices are connected, one virus can cause your business to come crashing down in an instant. With just one simple link, owners can use McAfee Multi Access to automatically detect the device they’re using and ensure the relevant security is installed on each one. It also carries out automatic updates, so there’s no need to worry about outdated software being unable to hold off ever more sophisticated cyber-attacks

  1. Control who is using the console

McAfee Multi Access is controlled using a smart and easy-to-use online management console that’s ideal for the busy business owner. It can be used to add and control users, as well as add and manage settings for particular devices. In short, it means you’re always in complete control.

  1. Use McAfee’s Safe Key feature to remember passwords

In a world of increasingly smart hackers it’s vital to use complex passwords and never use the same one more than once. Tougher passwords, of course, can be difficult to remember, which is where McAfee comes in. The safe key feature  allows you to create one master password, and the software will then generate complex and safe individual logins for all your accounts and then remember them so that you don’t have to

  1. Track, lock or wipe devices remotely

Losing a device needn’t mean game over. With McAfee you can locate and track the location of all your synced devices. If your crucial laptop or smartphone is somewhere it shouldn’t be, you can wipe or lock it remotely (or both). It’s also possible to set an alarm on a lost phone so it can be located more easily.
