McAfee Logo

Seems like everything that Network Associates brought together is being taken apart. Recently sold the Magic Help Desk solution to Remedy, a BMC Software company, now selling Sniffer, which will be known as Network General again. And renaming the company from Network Associates to McAfee, Inc. See the press release.

Excerpts from e-mail and press release:
