BroadJump/McAfee partner on security deal
BroadJump Inc. and McAfee.com partnered on a deal that integrates BroadJump's Virtual Truck Installer with McAfee.com's Personal Desktop Firewall and Clinic services.
The combination will allow subscribers to select a service, and the Virtual Truck will do the registration and billing, as well as the download and installation of McAfee.com security services, BroadJump reports.
The two also are collaborating on an integration of BroadJump's Service Fulfillment solution with McAfee.com's Personal Firewall and Clinic services.
The deal addresses issues from a BroadJump/Boston Research Group study showing virus protection and firewalls were the most designed broadband services consumers would willing pay for, the company reports.
