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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
