Since its founding in 1987, McAfee, inspired by the purpose to make life online safe and enjoyable for everyone, has led the way and created a legacy in online protection. As it redefines its focus to a consumer brand, the firm will partner with Weber Shandwick to create and execute a global consumer communications strategy that reflects the brand’s security focus on people, not just devices.

“We took a decisive step forward with our brand to place our focus on consumers, on people. It’s a bold move that’s been years in the making. To help us communicate this shift to consumers, we wanted a partner that was as bold at driving big changes,” said Judith Bitterli, Senior Vice President, McAfee Consumer Marketing. “Weber Shandwick’s integrated global network matches our own, and with their deep experience in consumer brand marketing and communications, they are a natural partner to take on storytelling in this new direction, on this scale.”
