To my current knowledge, several broadband and cable companies are giving out free Internet Security software to their customers. AT&T customers can download McAfee Internet Security for free; Comcast customers can download Norton Security Suite for free. Other broadband and cable companies might have their own security products as well, and so nowadays I don’t think it’s necessary for users who use broadband and cable to buy their own Internet Security software.
If you aren’t sure about being able to download free security product from your Internet service provider, you can call your ISP and ask about their free security product. Of course, you can always switch to a better ISP that provides you top of the line security product. If you think your ISP is faster and cheaper than any other ISP and yet you can’t download a free security product, then I guess you need to buy a standalone security product from a well known security company such as Symantec and stay loyal to your ISP.
In conclusion, broadband and cable companies such as AT&T are doing a great job in protecting their customers by providing free security software. The Internet is somewhat less hazardous to huge pools of people who can download and install free security products from their ISPs. So, don’t you go out and waste money on a standalone security product before you ask your ISP for a similar product first, OK? Good luck!
