McAfee, a division of Network Associates , today announced a partnership with RSVP Consultants, a Portuguese provider of customized security technology, to deliver McAfee ASaP web-based managed security solutions.

McAfee ASaP offers Network Associates' security technology over the Web. It will be providing RSVP with desktop and gateway anti-virus, vulnerability assessment and firewall services that are managed by McAfee.
