Virgin Media Offers "Lifetime" Malware Protection

By Gary Cutlack on at

Virgin Media's got something on offer for the more casual internet user, promising to give its customers "free lifetime security & parental controls" for peace of mind.

The updated Virgin Media Security offering is provided by Radialpoint and based around Trend Micro’s Titanium system, which is usually a paid-for service costing around £39 for a year. It's previously been available for users of Virgin's "Large" broadband service, now all of its four million users will have access to the cloud-based tools for free.

And there is something in this for Virgin. It's also launching a product it calls Identity+, which is a vague identity theft solution that rebadges Garlik's DataPatrol and charges £2.50 a month for it. [Virgin Media]
