McAfee Corp., a global player in online protection, announced an exclusive partnership with Mastercard (NYSE: MA), a global technology company in the payments industry, “to offer Mastercard personal and small-medium size business cardholders access to online protection solutions.”
In 2021, 83% of organizations “reported experiencing phishing attacks, a 46% increase over 2020, and a number that is expected to grow in 2022.”
Mastercard is “dedicated to connecting and powering an inclusive, digital economy that benefits everyone, everywhere by making transactions safe, simple, smart, and accessible.”
Providing Mastercard cardholders with the tools to help combat growing security threats is one of the many steps “towards combating bad actors and stopping damage from major breaches before they do lasting harm.”
McAfee offers for Mastercard US cardholders are:
- McAfee Total Protection for Mastercard 5 Devices: 30-day free trial that includes protection for up to 5 devices and a complimentary one-year subscription to McAfee TechMate (which optimizes device functionality) with a paid subscription at a first-year discounted price of $29.50 (a 75% discount) for consumers.

Pedro Gutierrez, SVP Global Sales & Operations at McAfee, said:
“With security threats from bad actors becoming more prevalent and sophisticated, it’s important that both general customers and small business customers have the option to add protections to their devices. We are proud to partner with Mastercard to offer solutions for their cardholders and look forward to helping customers stay secure so they can stay focused on what’s important to them.”
