McAfee is sprucing up its cloud security portfolio with a couple of products from its parent company, Intel.

For starters, Intel is adding single sign-on and one-time password solutions that were previously sold and developed by Intel to its portfolio.

Reintroduced as the SaaS-based McAfee Single Sign On solution, the feature includes unlimited SSO connectors, built-in multi-factor authetnication, hybrid deployments (i.e. on-premise, SaaS or both), and 24-hour customer support. Pricing ranges from $1 to $5 per user based on the number of users/seats.

The McAfee One Time Password option promises businesses with a scalable architecture that will deliver one-time passwords to mobile devices, PCs, or a third-party token via SMS and/or instant chat messages.

The antivirus detector giant is also adding a brand new product, dubbed the McAfee Identity Center of Expertise, which will be staffed by cloud security and identity experts to offer technical support and advice about best practices.

      And then there are those of us who manage several thousand users who find McAfee to be a useful tool. Improving mobile device authentication and security is a good thing for many.
