Benefits to ISPs
The benefits ISPs can gain from offering Preventon solutions to their subscribers
How can ISPs generate more profit?
By providing a true subscription-based blended security service.
A true subscription-based service ensures a ‘stickiness’ between the ISP and customer. True subscription solutions not only cease to download updates (in the case of Anti-Virus software), but also completely stop working upon termination of a customer’s contract with their ISP – if they change their ISP the software ceases to work.
Deploying Preventon Security Solutions helps ISPs tap into a significant new revenue stream and enhance Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). There is a clear demand in the market for blended security which will continue to grow rapidly in-line with mass market penetration of home PCs and broadband, and the increase in teleworkers/home office workers: Can you afford to loose market share?
Preventon Secure Internet Desktop
The Preventon Secure Internet Desktop (PSID) series of software suites (standard and Pro editions) have been designed for the mass market and are aimed at non-expert users. This helps ISPs ensure maximum take-up while minimizing support overheads.
PSID suites offer the most comprehensive security solution on the market, integrating anti-virus, firewall, anti-spyware, content filtering technology and more, each managed from a central, user-friendly interface. The suites offfer the most appropriate solution for the advanced Internet security issues affecting inexperienced, non-expert PC users.
PSID and PSID Pro are quick, easy and cost-effective to deploy, enabling ISPs to start recognizing revenues as very quickly. The suites and their individual modules have a low Total Cost of Ownership as they require minimal up-front capital investment, and ongoing support costs are negligible – helping to protect margins and profit.
How can Preventon help ISPs reduce churn?
A true subscription-based service helps to reduce churn as it raises the barrier to switching ISP accounts. Unlike other solutions, control and ownership of the Preventon subscriber remains with the ISP. The interface can be re-branded and Preventon can be completely transparent to the end-user.
How can ISPs attract more subscribers?
Offering a subscription-based blended security service provides a key competitive differentiator to the ISP: No other solution offers such a comprehensive set of benefits – Preventon’s completeness of product and vision help the ISP stand apart from its competitors.
