Threats, attacks and vulnerabilities evolve on a daily basis, so it is mandatory that customers be able to evolve and update just as quickly. Products need to be able to protect customers prior to a threat existing, or as soon as a threat becomes known. McAfee Gold Support offers customers the ability to keep their products current, with the latest updates, signatures, and daily DAT files. Customers have access to hotfixes and patches, so that as products evolve, issues are addressed and corrected as soon as possible. When a new major release is available, Gold Support customers can upgrade to the most current version and take advantage of the new, more powerful features and latest improvements. But updates alone are not enough. Customers also need access to industry certified security engineers. McAfee is your trusted security resource. Our Technical Support Engineers are not only trained and certified on the McAfee products and suites, but are also certified in industry recognized security certifications like CompTIA Security+ and CISSP. Our engineers also carry additional leading industry certifications, like CCIE, CCNA, CCNP, MCSE, MCP, CNA, CNE, and more…. With Gold Support, customers have access to McAfee’s global follow-the-sun support team, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our multiple support centers, strategically placed with local language specialists, are dedicated to solving customer problems and helping customers, no matter when or where the customer has a question. Gold Support allows customers access to a wealth of online features, including the McAfee Global Support Lab. Here customers can; learn about their products through demonstration configurations, evaluate new products in a safe lab environment, as well as model upgrade scenarios based on their configurations prior to making a single change to their production environment. Support customers also have access to McAfee’s award winning ServicePortal. Here customers can download updates and manage their issues. Customers can run the McAfee Virtual Technician to check their systems and solve problems they are having, open chat sessions with support engineers, and search the McAfee knowledge base. The ServicePortal is the online one-stop-shop to address and manage all of the customer’s products and keep them running in optimal condition. Also available to support customers is access to the McAfee Deployment Assistance Program (DAP). DAP ensures that customers are able to quickly and correctly deploy products, while also benefiting the channel partners who leverage the McAfee expertise to augment their in-house technical expertise. Ultimately, this leads to satisfied customers, with fewer technical complications down the road, as the products were correctly installed from the beginning. The Platinum Support offering takes customer service to the next level by providing customers with a single named technical contact, available around the clock. These Technical Account Managers (TAMs) meet with their customers, so that they know the people, the products, and the configurations. Platinum Support customers rest easy knowing they have a named resource to call when they have an issue. But the TAMs do more than just respond when there are problems. They proactively contact Platinum Support customers to update them with important information. If a serious vulnerability is found at 2am on the weekend, the TAM will notify their accounts and help mitigate the risk, whenever the issue occurs. TAMs send newsletters and executive summary reports to help their customers know what is happening, and meet with them regularly to ensure that the customers are receiving the highest level of service from McAfee. Through the McAfee Security Alerting Service (MSAS), Platinum Support customers also have the ability to automatically receive alerts about viruses and vulnerabilities, or information about product upgrades and updates. They choose their preferred contact methods and MSAS can be customized to alert based on Priority of Outbreak, Vulnerabilities, or by specific Products. While not included in the Gold Support offering, MSAS is available for purchase. In summary, our message to our customers: McAfee Technical Support is here to be your trusted security advisor; keeping your products current, issues addressed and to keep you informed.
