With the ever-rising internet threats, Mcafee decided to work on a new variant of Antivirus software and it is termed as internet security. Although, Mcafee Internet Security is now the standardized edition, yet there are few differences between the two.
Let's us discuss them:
1. Both the variants are supposed to give protection to the system offline and online. In internet security, great stress is laid upon offline protection to a higher extent.
2. Internet security can be called a part of antivirus, as its main function is to control all the online protection utilities like Anti-phishing tools, message protection tools, anti-spam, email protection and many more.
