Scotiabank has teamed with security technology firm McAfee to provide its online banking customers discounted anti-virus and firewall software.

Under the deal Scotia OnLine users will receive "a generous discount" on McAfee's VirusScan and Personal Firewall Plus products.

The products are offered at a discount for one-year subscriptions including automatic updates to the software during the subscription period. Scotiabank says a French version of VirusScan and Personal Firewall Plus will be available to bank customers in late July.

Todd Gebhart, SVP, worldwide consumer sales, McAfee, comments: "Amidst growing consumer concern pertaining to online banking activity, it is critical to provide customers the tools necessary to better safeguard their personal data."

Sharon Hodder, VP, Internet services, Scotiabank, adds: "This rebate further enables Scotia OnLine customers to take the necessary steps to protect their privacy and security."
