Verizon Internet Security Suite Features

What is Verizon Internet Security Suite?
Verizon Internet Security Suite (VISS) is a set of software and services that helps protect your (Windows or Mac) computer from hackers, viruses, spyware, and other threats. Verizon Internet Security Suite is automatically updated to keep the user protected from new threats online.

Verizon Internet Security Suite includes the following tools:

McAfee Active Protection: McAfee Active Protection technology provides immediate protection against malicious threats to your PC. A new threat can be analyzed and blocked in milliseconds, rather than waiting hours using traditional techniques.

Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware: Anti-Virus helps protect your files and hardware from viruses, worms, and Trojan horses. Anti-Virus runs transparently and provides real-time protection against virus attacks. Our Anti-Virus engine includes Anti-Spyware protection as part of the core scanning technology. Spyware programs are put on your computer to secretly gather your personal information, which is then relayed to advertisers or other third parties.

Firewall: Firewall patrols incoming and outgoing connections and alerts you to unauthorized attempts to connect to your computer. It reduces the risk of external threats, such as hackers, from remotely accessing your computer without your knowledge. Firewall tools help you control how your Internet-enabled programs connect to and share files over the Internet. The firewall also provides wi-fi security, which helps ensure your wireless connection stays secure and keeps computers outside your home network from accessing your wireless connection.

Identity Protection: Identity Protection helps protect you from online fraud by alerting you when you attempt to access a potentially fraudulent website, such as phishing sites. Verizon SiteAdvisor Powered by McAfee displays a warning whenever you are accessing a known phishing website.

PC Optimization Tools (Mac: PC Health Tools): PC Health / Optimization Tools improve and maintain your computer's performance by providing easy to use disk defragmenter and cleanup tools.

Site Advisor: Verizon SiteAdvisor Powered by McAfee adds safety ratings to sites and search engine results based on comprehensive spam, adware, and online scam safety tests. Simple indicators of green (safe), yellow (caution) and red (stop) alert users to potentially harmful websites.

Network Manager: Provides a network map of your network and information on the protection status of your computers.

Spam Protection: Keeps offensive, annoying and harmful spam messages out of your inbox.
