Microsoft ships Windows Live OneCare and you might have a free copy waiting for you.
Sometimes beta testing, or pretending to, pays off. Such is the case of Windows Live OneCare, the all-in-one security and safety service from Microsoft integrating the antivirus, antispyware, maintenance (defrag) and backup functionality. This is Microsoft’s first significant push into the retail security space with a consumer product, according to the blog, available in dozens of US retail outlets and at http://onecare.live.com site.
Site seems to be broken so you can’t quite buy it or try it, but suffiice to say this is a preview of Microsoft’s software-as-a-service strategy as this service will run you $49.95 a year. Intended for the home users of course, this is different from the Antigen product I’ve recently been showing you folks at Florida Technet events.
