New Breakthrough in Improving Business Productivity

The new Protection Service for Business by F-Secure reduces operating costs and improves business efficiency

Kuala Lumpur, 20 October 2014: Businesses rely heavily on technology, but many still lack a modern security solution that covers all layers in the organisation and fixes software vulnerabilities the moment updates are available.

This is all set to change with the latest Protection Service for Business (PSB) – a unique breakthrough in technology providing total protection and increasing the productivity of businesses, introduced by leading global online security company F-Secure.

PSB is a cloud-based platform that offers companies, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the edge they require to perform at a more productive pace, along with comprehensive protection for the whole IT environment, while being cost-efficient for businesses.

It is a comprehensive turn-key protection suite for multi-device settings, offering the best security in the market coupled with advanced value-added features, such as Software Updater, which ensures a worry-free, state-of-the-art protection solution.

“The new PSB solution by F-Secure allows businesses, especially SMEs, to focus more on their business and leave security to the experts. By choosing security as a service, businesses no longer have to worry about IT security, security settings or software updates. PSB will protect all devices against the latest security threats, and F-Secure will maintain the whole solution together with the local IT security partner to monitor and manage the customer’s devices. No additional hardware investment is required, which translates to direct cost savings to the enterprise, and increased productivity for the business,” said Christian Fredrikson, President and Chief Executive Officer of F-Secure Corporation at the launch of PSB in Kuala Lumpur last week, which was also attended by Paul Palmer, Vice President of F-Secure APAC.

“This unique cloud-based solution protects computers (PCs, laptops, Macs), file servers (Windows and Linux), email servers (Microsoft Exchange) and mobile devices (phones and tablets) ensuring up-to-date protection at all times,” added Fredrikson.

Echoing Fredrikson’s sentiments, Palmer explained that, with Malaysia being Southeast Asia’s third-largest economy and ranking sixth in the list of the world’s 20 emerging markets, PSB is expected to spur the SME security market and is a perfect fit for small and medium sized businesses in Malaysia.

PSB Solution: Products

PSB Workstation Security
Ensures protection of all a customer’s computers with one subscription, regardless whether they are on a Windows PC, Mac or hybrid environment. Windows protection safeguards computers against all malware, while Mac protection is an antivirus-only solution with the ability to control the system firewall. The PSB Software Updater proactively scans computers for mission operating system and third-party application patches, making it easier to keep them up-to-date.

PSB Server Security
Provides effective protection for Windows and Linux servers. Real-time and scheduled scanning ensures that no malware is stored in a business’ file servers. The Windows version includes antivirus, behaviour analysis and cloud-based reputation technology (DeepGuard), whereas the Linux version includes antivirus and allows control of the system firewall.

PSB E-mail and Server Security
Complete protection for servers running Microsoft Exchange. The product contains three modules and is licensed per usage. It includes enhanced cloud-based protection with DeepGuard, Browsing Protection for terminal users and centralised quarantine management. E-mail and Server Security supports Windows, Microsoft Small Business Server, Microsoft Exchange, Terminal and Citrixservers.

PSB Mobile Security
The product is available for Android, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms. Mobile Security contains antivirus, antispyware, firewall, antitheft and browsing protection, with some differences between operating systems.

New Feature: Software Updater

Protection Service for Business comes with a new feature – PSB Software Updater, that ensures operating systems and third-party applications used in the organisation are up-to-date. It provides visibility of the latest real-time security status and lowers risks associated with unpatched software. It can proactively scan computers for missing operating system and third-party application patches, which can be deployed either manually or automatically, or scheduled at the IT partner and customer’s convenience.

The next product on the cards for the Finnish company is Freedome, which is a super-simple security and online privacy solution that allows users to browse safely in a virtual private network, blocking harmful sites as well as applications. It also shields the user’s privacy, giving anonymity and a clean digital footprint, away from the eyes of advertisers or cyber criminals.   

“Freedome is a game-changing technology which is set to alter the web-sphere significantly. The first-of-its-kind product will be released in Malaysia later this year, as one of the many F-Secure outreach product plans, along with Younited and PSB,” explained Fredrikson.
