Plusnet consumers can now bolster their broadband deals with a new security add-on, the internet service provider (ISP) has announced.
The firm has teamed up with IT company McAfee to offer a software suite designed to keep Windows PCs safe from a variety of online dangers.
Plusnet Protect allows subscribers to block viruses and spyware, prevent hackers from accessing confidential information, defend their identity and set parental controls.
The add-on is available at no additional cost to consumers paying for Plusnet's Extra and Pro broadband packages.
"If you're on Value, Essential, Broadband Your Way Option 1 or Unlimited, you can enjoy all the benefits of Plusnet Protect for just £2 a month," the ISP stated.
Plusnet's customer services teams have been trained to use the security software, so customers can contact them if they experience any difficulties installing or using the product.
