    Default Cure and Secure

    Dear teachers,

    Could I use this phrase "Cure & Secure" like a word-play in the description of a company which scans websites, detects viruses and removes malware from them. Or do you use this phrase only when you are speaking about health.

    Thank you!

    I actually think it's quite good.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
