Computer security suit

I recently changed from ATT to Xfinity,  ATT had free McAfee security which has discontinued. 

Does Xfinity offer a free security program for customers?  Out computer is connected by ethernet.

from a Xfinity gateway.

Located in Calif.  SF bay area

thank you

No. They used to offer Norton but that was stopped likely for financial reasons. They do have what they call "Advanced security";

But it's not the same / not enough. It is still recommended to install an anti-virus program / security suite on your computer. If you have a later flavor of a Windows O/S installed, it has a very good one built in.
