AOL Offers Free Active Security Monitor

AOL launched Active Security Monitor, a free downloadable program that continuously checks the status of key security programs - including anti-virus, firewall, spyware protection, wireless security, and Windows/browser updates - on a user's home computer. Active Security Monitor assigns a Security Score to each PC on the user's network, and it offers specific recommendations based on the scan's results to improve user security.

Specifically, Active Security Monitor examines each computer on a user's home network in eight important areas: firewall, virus protection, spyware protection, Windows/browser updates, wireless security, P2P software, and PC utilities.

Active Security Monitor was developed in partnership with Sereniti.
