Interesting......

Is this in the firmware? How would this take to daily updates if it's in the firmware?

The idea is cool specially for people who don't want to bother with all the different security apps or for someone who is computer illiterate. I would wait and see how it performs, specially if it's from Dlink and it involves updates to the firmware...

Will the updates require a monthly service fee?

Good question. And yes, as for Dlink, I will wait and see.

That was my question as well, and so far I don't see any indication of such...

Scratch that: looks like a $79 yearly fee, a little steep for keeping my definitions updated....

Sounds too good to be true but we'll see. Interested in reading a few reviews.

According to D-Link web site, the device automatically links to update sites to download tables to maintain updated signatures and definitions. From that, I assume that the firmware is the core code, and tables provide the customization and updated signatures and definitions.

Also, it looks like pieces reside outside of the security device. It is a 3 layer product:
THREE LAYERS OF PROTECTION
The SECURESPOT is the first all-in-one, plug and play desktop Internet Security Device designed to provide three layers of protection: the Web Layer, the SECURESPOT Hardware Layer, and the Individual Computer Layer. The Web Service Layer manages your home network security with real-time updates of antivirus, spam, spyware, reporting and content filtering databases. The SECURESPOT Layer provides network perimeter protection through firewall, content filtering, virus filtering, application control, identity theft, and reporting. The Individual Computer Layer protects by applying antivirus and spyware detection and removal, pop-up control, and application control.

Looks like it acts as a inline layer 2 bridge. I wonder what the wirespeed performance is going to be?

It seems if it takes on those capabilities it would free PC CPUs of some processing normally devoted to running those apps on the PC. That in itself could be a nice benefit.

On top of the yearly one? I doubt it...

I can still see, that you are a complete ignorant ****, I wasn't asking "how they would come to the device". I was talking about how the updates would work on a daily basis if it's built into the firmware. Take your trolling ass somewhere else please, your welcome still has worn out with me.
