CA Gives Away Insurance to Internet Security Suite Customers

CA Gives Away Insurance to Internet Security Suite CustomersComputer Associates (CA) offers customers insurance against identity theft and computer virus infections when they buy CA's Internet Security Suite 2007.

Customers in all U.S. states except New York receive up to $5,000 in identity theft coverage when they buy Internet Security Suite 2007 through a reseller or direct, a CA spokesman said. In addition, up to $1,500 of virus protection coverage is provided for customers who buy Internet Security Suite 2007 or CA's Anti-Virus 2007. Both policies remain in force for one year after the product purchase date.

However, there is a catch, which states that the guarantee does not cover data loss or damage to software other than the Windows operating system. Customers also cannot use their personal laptops to work networks. In addition, they cannot turn off the CA's Internet Security Suite 2007 and its auto update mechanism.

The offer is similar to one that AOL offered earlier this month to its dial-up Internet-access subscribers, but is a new marketing tactic among other security-software vendors. Software rivals have, however, been improving their product offerings with other new features and stepping up price promotions as they roll out 2007 product upgrades.

Internet Security Suite 2007 costs $49.99 for a single-user license and $69.99 for a three-user license.
