AOL prompts subscribers to install Tech Fortress, Webroot says it won't interfere with Secure Anywhere
I am getting prompted by AOL to install Tech Fortress. I admit I haven’t done this yet. The produce is now included with AOL subscription (which includes paywall news content, although Huffington often has similar content for free). To give it credit, some of the content is on particularly edgy or disturbing stories, especially about Internet abuse.
I checked with Webroot which say it will not interfere but is redundant if I have Secure Anywhere (8.1).
Tech Fortress appears to be cloud-based, like Webroot, and doesn’t need signature updating. It claims it will block zero-day threats.
