The California headquartered McAfee is a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel. The company is engaged in providing computer security software to global customers.

Following are the mega trends that will dominate 2015's security industry in India-

1.Increased use of cyber warfare and espionage tactics: Cyber espionage attacks will continue to increase in frequency as long-term players will become stealthier information gatherers, while newcomers to cyber-attack capabilities will look for ways to steal sensitive information and disrupt their adversaries.

  • Established nation-state actors will work to enhance their ability to remain hidden on victim systems and networks.

  • Cybercriminals will continue to act more like nation-state cyber espionage actors, focusing on monitoring systems and gathering high-value intelligence on individuals, intellectual property, and operational intelligence.
