McAfee, Inc. announced that it is offering special incentives to customers of IBM Internet Security Systems to switch to McAfee solutions. The ISS Switch Program will focus on McAfee security risk management solutions, including McAfee IntruShield and McAfee Foundstone( With proven protection from McAfee, customers receive the confidence and investment protection that only an established company with a single-minded focus on security risk management can offer.

“We’re hearing from customers that they are concerned that their level of security will decrease following IBM’s acquisition of ISS,” said Chris Kenworthy, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, McAfee, Inc. “ISS customers can feel safe switching to McAfee because of our strong track record and clear vision for the future of security risk management. Our dedicated focus on security ensures that it will never take a back seat to systems, servers or semiconductors.”

Customers will get more from McAfee than from IBM, including comprehensive and integrated security risk management solutions, and proven, market-leading security expertise and research.

As part of the switch program, McAfee is offering free installation through the McAfee Deployment Assistance Program (DAP) for customers who switch from ISS products. Customers will also receive free training courses through McAfee University as well as free Platinum Support, which includes a designated technical account manager. Customers who purchase McAfee IntruShield will also get McAfee IntruShield Security Manager at no additional cost.

McAfee SecurityAlliance partners in the United States and Canada can also benefit from the ISS Switch Program. McAfee will provide authorized resellers with on-site technical training and selected partners may qualify for additional incentives.
