SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- November 13, 2012

McAfee today announced that it has appointed Steve Redman as executive vice
president of global sales, and Penny Baldwin has joined the company as
executive vice president and chief marketing officer (CMO). Redman, who
previously served as regional president for the Asia Pacific Region for
McAfee, will relocate to McAfee’s Santa Clara headquarters from Sydney to lead
the global sales team. Baldwin, who joins the company from Yahoo!, is now
responsible for leading McAfee’s marketing efforts around the world as well as
serving as an active member of the executive leadership team. Both Redman and
Baldwin report directly to McAfee Co-President Michael DeCesare.

“Steve is an accomplished leader who is dedicated to our cause of keeping
customers safe,” said DeCesare. “He has an impressive track record of double
digit growth quarters in Asia Pacific for McAfee across all four segments –
consumer, small and medium business, commercial and enterprise. As APAC
president, Steve mastered a broad set of cross-functional business skills,
equipping him exceptionally well for running our global sales organization. He
has been instrumental in driving a strong people-based culture in APAC which
has been recognized internally and externally as one of the best in the
industry and beyond.”

In his previous role, Redman was responsible for all business operations for
McAfee in the Asia Pacific region, including North Asia, Southeast Asia,
India, Australia, and New Zealand. Since joining McAfee in 2008, Redman has
guided the APAC region to four consecutive years of double-digit growth, with
multiple record growth quarters. Prior to joining McAfee in January 2008,
Redman spent eight years at EMC, most recently as Vice President of Asia
Pacific. In this position, Redman had responsibility for the field operations
of EMC Software Group across Asia Pacific and Japan. Prior to EMC, Redman was
general manager of Rockwell Electronic Commerce and held positions at Lucent
Technologies and Fuji Xerox.

Redman replaces Joe Sexton, who chose to depart to take a leadership role in a
non-competing technology company.

“I want to express my deep appreciation to Joe for his energetic leadership
and significant achievements within our sales organization and on behalf of
McAfee,” continued DeCesare. “I wish him well in his new job leading a
start-up.”

Prior to McAfee, Penny Baldwin was acting CMO and senior vice president,
Global Brand Strategy and Marketing at Yahoo!. She previously served as
president and chief executive officer of Young & Rubicam Advertising and
Wunderman Direct Marketing.

“Penny is a seasoned business leader with an exceptional record of achievement
across consumer, enterprise and corporate marketing,” said Mike DeCesare,
co-president, McAfee. “She’s had phenomenal success in branding and marketing
a diverse range of global companies and she brings a strong, new marketing
presence to this organization. We continue to attract the finest talent, in
part, because of our dedication to making a difference in the lives of our
customers and communities.”

“I joined McAfee not only because of its reputation for leadership in
security, but also because of its brand and the values it encompasses,” said
Baldwin. “In talking to many people in the company, it’s clear that there’s a
fervent belief that McAfee is more than just a collection of technology
solutions. Rather, the company has a cause—a higher order purpose—of being
relentlessly focused on making the world a safer place. As a marketer, that’s
a really compelling proposition and something I want to be a part of.”

Baldwin has had success in branding and marketing a wide range of global
companies such as NetApp, Hitachi Data Systems, and Citrix, to Chevron, AT&T
and Cadbury Schweppes, to name only a few. Her background spans developing
capabilities and leading global efforts in brand strategy, advertising,
digital communications, direct marketing, event marketing, corporate identity
systems, portfolio strategy, market research, website design, database
marketing, social media and communications planning, measurement and
analytics. She has led teams to win numerous high profile industry awards.
