McAfee Incorporated, an American computer security software company in Nigeria has announced the launch of its Enhanced Unified Defense Architecture designed to empower organisations to handle digital assets.

Announcing this in Lagos at a forum organised by the US Commercial Service in Nigeria in collaboration with McAfee, Senior Territory Manager of McAfee for Sub-Saharan Africa, Will O’Shea, said the launch was necessary to successfully thwart cyber-criminals.

O’Shea noted that cyber-criminals continue to put individuals and corporate end-users on the defensive, adding, “To effectively counteract cyber-criminals, we have to abandon old security playbooks and become more collaborative in making cyber-security a priority.”

Also speaking at the event which was organised for cyber security experts and corporate end-users in Nigeria, Commercial Attaché, U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Nigeria, Ms. Jennifer Woods, explained that the programme aimed to support Nigeria’s rapidly growing digital economy.

According to Woods, having effective and proven solution against growing cyberattacks is a critical aspect of any corporate IT infrastructure.

“The U.S. Foreign Commercial Service is pleased to provide a unique opportunity for leaders of the Nigerian digital economy to hear first-hand from American computer security leaders about their cutting edge solutions for protecting corporate assets,” Woods said.

Over 130 representatives from the Nigerian Computer Society (NCS), Cyber Security Experts Association of Nigeria (CSEAN), Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), Association of Telecom Companies in Nigeria (ATCON), the Nigeria Internet Group (NIG), and the Lagos State Ministry of Science & Technology attended the event.
