You saw http://www.secureit.com/ selling a separate anti-virus program to
consumers? That's not their business. They design suites of security
solutions (from other parties) depending on the corporate customer's need.
They don't sell individual products.
secure-it.com is about physically securing your hardware.
Without a URL to point at what you are asking about, no one knows what you
are asking about. Could just be rogueware, like Antivirus 2009, under
It is a security service offered through ISP's. Our local telephone company
(for whom I work) sells it as a package for $7.99 a month. I thought it was
a good deal for people who really don't know anything about protecting
themselves, but we've had enough problems with it now that I'm beginning to
get soured on it.
If you have problems, then their technicians access your computer remotely
and attempt to repair your problems. At first their service took over
Windows updating and even defragmented your hard drive. Now the Windows
updates are back on their own and the defrag bit went away with Vista.
Problem is that if you get hooked by anything that cripples your computer,
then they can't get access to repair it. And I don't know of anyone yet who
has successfully gotten them to pay the bill for outside repair, although
they claim they will.
Then they had some updates to their own software that went sour and that
took a remote session to repair.
We had six computers at the telco running it. Now we're down to two.
And now they're trying to get into the online backup business.
