A: Without computer protection, you are susceptible to computer damage, financial loss, or both because of a computer virus or spyware that sneaks onto your computer. In a recent issue of Consumer Reports, they reported that if you use the Internet at home, you have a 1-in-3 chance of being negatively affected by computer viruses or spyware.
As a subscriber to SecureIT Services, you will no longer have to worry about your anti-virus protection, spyware protection, or anything else related to the privacy of your information or the protection of your computer. SecureIT Services also automatically applies Microsoft patches after testing them to ensure continued protection. In addition, the service will also provide ongoing maintenance by optimizing file storage and disk defragmentation for faster PC performance.
A: Excellent! We love to see that you have taken the time to protect your computer from Internet security issues. SecureIT Services will give you the same protection and more.
A recent survey conducted by the National Cyber Security Alliance found that the majority of computer users did not have their anti-virus protection installed correctly or did not have it updated. SecureIT Services is fully automated. We will install it for you and once installed, you don't have to manage the software to make sure your protection stays updated. With SecureIT Services it is taken care of for you automatically. With Norton or McAfee you must install, maintain, and make sure the service stays updated.
In addition, besides up-to-date protection from spyware, viruses, and other malicious programs, SecureIT Services will automatically keep your system current with critical patches to your Microsoft operating system. Most people don't understand patches, let alone take the time to stay current. Yet, without these patches your computer and/or network can easily be compromised. In addition, the service will also provide ongoing maintenance by optimizing file storage and disk defragmentation for faster PC performance. These services are not included with Norton and McAfee anti-virus protection software.
Support for SecureIT Services is free and the service is guaranteed.* If you experience problems with an Internet-delivered issue while using SecureIT Services, we will fix your computer free of charge. With Norton and McAfee you pay for support calls, and if you experience problem with an Internet-delivered issue, you will pay to receive assistance.
A: To get the same protection from Norton, McAfee, or another company you will have to purchase multiple programs. SecureIT Services is actually priced about the same as if you were going to buy Norton Internet Security or other similar products. With SecureIT Services you get it all in one service, and you don't have to maintain and update it.
A: Absolutely not. SecureIT Services was built with your security and privacy as first priority. All the updates, scanning, and protection happen from your computer and nothing is sent to us outside of the reporting statistics which are made fully available to you on our reporting website and through our monthly e-mail summary. The only time we have access to your machine is when you explicitly grant it to us during your use of the Remote Installation or Remote Support request. Even then we require that you put in a one time use code that allows your computer to connect to our Operation Center granting us permission to assist you.
A: No, SecureIT Services will provide you with everything you need to safely navigate the Internet and effectively and efficiently use your computer.
A: No, the value of this service is that it applies all updates and runs all of its various scans behind the scenes without you having to worry.
A: No, if you happen to have your computer off at the time the program runs its various scanning processes and updates, they will automatically run the next time that you turn your computer on.
A: You will receive a monthly e-mail detailing the activities that have been executed by your SecureIT Services software. In addition you can check the Online Reports anytime, which are updated every 24 hours.
A: Since our service never contacts your computer, and the vast majority of firewalls are designed to block INCOMING traffic, this software is compatible with 99+% of all firewalls.
A: In the very unlikely case that you do get a virus or spyware threat on your computer, we will do our best to remove the problem at no cost.*
