McAfee, LLC (ˈ|m|æ|k|ə|f|iː; formerly known as McAfee Associates, Inc. from 1987–2014 and Intel Security Group from 2014–2017) is an American global computer security software company headquartered in Santa Clara, California and claims to be the world's largest dedicated security technology company.

Thoma Bravo took a minority stake in the new company, and Intel maintains a 49% stake.
