The company was founded in 1987 as McAfee Associates, named for its founder John McAfee, who resigned from the company in 1994. The company restructured in 2004, beginning with the sale of its Magic Solutions business to Remedy, a subsidiary of BMC Software. In mid-2004, the company sold the Sniffer Technologies business to a venture capital-backed firm named Network General (the same name as the original owner of Sniffer Technologies), and changed its name back to McAfee to reflect its focus on security-related technologies.
