Big ISPs pushing their own security solutions

The Yahoo!/SBC partnership has announced they are offering a free security suite for their DSL subscribers. The offering will include anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, and various pop-up and offensive content blocking tools.

Yahoo! polled users prior to putting together the suite. More than 70 percent of the users thought security issues very important, but less than 20 percent of them felt they had the skillset to properly secure themselves.

So Yahoo! put together an all-in-one solution, that by the way, more than half the respondents wanted.
