McAfee has begun providing anti-spyware protection with its McAfee IntruShield network IPS (intrusion protection system).

McAfee’s spyware protection is available in a number of the company’s security products including McAfee Anti-Spyware Enterprise Edition Module, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i, McAfee Secure Content Management solutions and McAfee Foundstone technologies.

The security it offers is designed to block and eliminate spyware, adware, premium rate internet dialers, keyloggers, password crackers and remote-control programs.

"Businesses of all sizes are struggling with the security risks that many potentially unwanted programs can create - the decrease in employee productivity, increased demand for IT resources to resolve problems, and the overall impact these unwanted programs have in their computing environment," said Vincent Rossi, McAfee senior-vice president of product management and product marketing.

The initial set of McAfee IntruShield anti-spyware signatures will provide protection against a broad range of today's most prevalent and unwanted programs. It is also designed to recognise and prevent communication from the client portion of the spyware to back-end servers.

McAfee will offer ongoing anti-spyware protection for IntruShield by providing regular signature updates as more new threats are identified.
