Insight Communications Co. Inc. has deployed F-Secure Corp.’s “Personal Express” hosted security software and services.

The two companies have created a co-branded Web shop on the MSO’s site (www.insight-com.com) where high-speed-date customers can purchase anti-virus and intrusion-prevention software and update services from F-Secure.

The packages currently available:

• Basic: anti-virus and firewall for $39.95 per year;

• Anti-virus, firewall and spam control, $57.90;

• Anti-virus, firewall and parental control, $57.90; and

• Advanced: full suite, $64.95.

“Small businesses and consumers don't always have the time or expertise to manage and update their own computer-security software, so we do it for them,” F-Secure vice president of U.S. operations Travis Witteveen said in a prepared statement.
