Today I had my Internet provider to install Internet Fiber at my place. I've been asked whether I wanted the antivirus service.
I am aware you can (and should) install an antivirus on your computer. However, I don't really get the point (and how it works) of an antivirus/firewall directly provided with the Internet connection.
My question is: why would someone have a firewall/antivirus provided by the Internet provider, rather than locally on their own machine?
