McAfee uses a cloud-based global threat intelligence system (GTI) and machine learning to instantly scan messages, files, and apps, and block or quarantine malicious content like viruses, malware, ransomware, spyware, and more on your compatible devices.
About Global Threat Intelligence:
- This cloud-based system continuously communicates with your device, keeping it running smooth and fast.
- It collects and compares data on all kind of things, like files, websites, emails, and networks, giving you a broad range of protection.
- McAfee GTI plays nicely with other layers of McAfee protection such as Firewall protection, McAfee WebAdvisor, and Anti-Spam. That keeps everything working together to help keep your devices and data safer.
- It scans quickly and remembers threats, meaning you get the most complete information — in real-time.
