IObit products review: As a Linux user, do you need their tools?

As a Linux user, I am passionate about technology, which is a trait that most Linux users share with me. This passion drives me to try and use different operating systems. Moreover, new immigrants to Linux land need to visit their previous operating system from time to time. In such cases, we frequently need certain system utilities and software to maintain, optimize and secure our secondary systems.
Iobit is one of the leading developers of PC optimization and security software. It offers a wide range of utilities that help you take care of your secondary operating system (Android, Mac, and Windows), given that Linux is your primary operating system.
What are the utilities/software offered by Iobit and what are their pros and cons?
