    this video is outdated now… sucuri doesn't offer free scans to the best of my knowledge… I couldn't find anything on their site.

    Website is outdated yes, however the programs are still working and in use. However
    Sucuri has changed alot since and now is a plugin that is active on your website. it tells you Authorized logins and a lot of more stuff. such as a firewall and automatic scans when you use the plugin.
