We wanted to completely rethink how home computers are protected, by applying the same security standards you’d find in the workplace to your home.

Daily Safety Check, a computer security startup company from Kansas City, was recently named “Editor’s Choice” by PC Magazine for consumer managed antivirus.

In a market that’s dominated by huge corporations, as well as a multitude of smaller competitors; companies compete by offering low value add-ons or fancy sounding features, but are pretty much a commodity.

“We’re the first company to really bring a new approach to home computer security market in nearly a decade,” says Marco Stanich, CEO of Daily Safety Check. “And it didn’t come out of San Jose or Sunnyvale. It feels good to go toe to toe with these big corporations and have someone say your product is the best. And we really like Kansas City as a place to do business. There are lots of qualified employees here, and a good environment to grow.”

“The conventional thinking in technology startups is that you have to locate in Silicon Valley or Boston, hire a bunch of software engineers and out-code the competition,” says Jim McKenney, founder of Daily Safety Check. “We wanted to take a new approach, and completely rethink how home computers are protected, by applying the same security standards you’d find in the workplace to your home.”

“We start by applying the enterprise security environment to the home computer with daily fixes of security weaknesses,” explains McKenney. “Then we give you a real person to help you if something goes wrong, just like you’d expect your IT person to help at work.”
