McAfee focuses on SMB security market

Security Internet Gateway 3000 introduced as a low-end model of its e-mail and Web security appliance

McAfee Monday pledged a renewed focus on the small-and-midsize business market, where the security firm said it's beefing up its product line and sales support.

McAfee introduced its Security Internet Gateway 3000, a low-end model of its e-mail and Web security appliance to support a maximum 200 users. McAfee also said it has set up an SMB product marketing and sales support division with a staff of 150 to focus on this business segment.

"We think the [SMB] market is defined as less than 1,000 employees," said Darrell Rodenbaugh, McAfee's senior vice president for the global midmarket. "McAfee's strategy is investment in personnel and products custom-built for the enterprise of this size."

The Internet Security Gateway Model 3000 appliance, which includes McAfee's SiteAdvisor software to block access to malicious Web sites, costs US$2,400 for fewer than 200 users.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
