Security provider McAfee announced a new agreement to provide its subscription-based Total Protection Service pre-installed on HP's StorageWorks X500 Data Vault series storage devices.
"Customers want to share important documents, photos and media files with the assurance that they are protected from viruses and spy ware," said Lee Johns, director of marketing, StorageWorks, HP. "When our customers access a file on their HP Data Vault device, McAfee Total Protection Service automatically scans and blocks viruses, spy ware, unwanted programs and other potential Internet threats to ensure greater security."
McAfee says the service is available right away as a 90-day trial subscription. Once the trial ends, the service reverts to its subscription model, with pricing based on the number of storage arrays.
