I do`t know of any ISP who writes their own Security program. The programs they provided are usually an already written program, Norton, McAfee, etc. with a face lift to make it look like it is from the ISP.

If you already have and are comfortable with Norton then I see no real reason to change. Or at the least wait until your current subscription is about to expire and maybe opt for the free program then.

EastLink has partnered with McAfeeŽ Security to bring you one of the world's most trusted Internet security solutions.

There is no date on the page, so if it's still accurate what you'll be getting is McAfee and it's not really for sale. Your internet bill will include a monthly charge for the program. Only you can decide whether to switch.
