a_ump this is just them saying "our AV software will be on this network" compared to you having to have it on your computer? interesting but i'm not sure if it'll be anymore effective than what they currently have. Now what would be kickass is if they contacted a major IP provider and teamed up with them. then software would be filtered through your IP, course i'd expect internet prices to rise a touch.

Though this raises a question for me, when on your computer with a fresh AV install you have to sometimes allow programs to run because a lot of AV's mark everything suspicious until you configure it, so how will their AV be configured without messing up applications you may try to run that require the net, yet you have no access to the AV's control panel. hmm?
