McAfee

(McAfee, Inc., Santa Clara, CA, www.mcafee.com) A leading provider of security software and subsidiary of Intel. McAfee Associates was founded by John McAfee in 1989 for antivirus software, and Network General was founded in 1986 by Leonard Shustek and Harry Saal. Network General developed the Sniffer line of network analyzers. In 1997, McAfee and Network General merged to become Network Associates.

The year Network Associates was formed, it acquired the popular PGP encryption software from Phil Zimmerman, but later sold it to the newly formed PGP Corporation (see PGP). In 2004, the company returned to its roots, selling its Sniffer business to investors who would recreate Network General and rename itself McAfee, Inc. In 2011, McAfee was acquired by Intel.
