F-Secure Comes to the Upware Marketplace from Comcast Business as Only Multi-Device Security Provider
Tier one operator selects F-Secure to deliver a comprehensive cloud-based multi-device security platform to SMBs.
Helsinki, Finland – January 15, 2014: F-Secure today announced that its comprehensive business security-as-a-service (SaaS) offering has joined the Upware™ marketplace from Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, the US’s largest cable company and home Internet service provider. F-Secure Protection Service for Business (PSB) software provides complete security specifically designed from the ground up for small to medium size businesses (SMBs) through powerful, real-time protection for Windows PCs, Macs, servers and mobile devices. As a result, businesses can run smoothly and are constantly protected against online threats.
F-Secure PSB is the only solution within the “Security and Anti-virus” category in the Upware marketplace from Comcast Business that addresses security on multiple devices (server, mobile, PC / Mac). With this service, Comcast Business customers will benefit from a fully automated security solution with online management tools so the organization does not have to worry about software upgrades, virus definition updates, or in-house servers for IT security. Furthermore, PSB is a hosted and managed service by F-Secure, which eliminates the need for businesses to purchase additional hardware and software, allowing for greater cost savings.
“Most small businesses don’t have the IT resources or expertise to effectively manage online security,” said Kevin O’Toole, senior vice president and general manager of new business solutions at Comcast Business. “F-Secure’s Protection Service for Business provides automated protection against online threats and is easy to use, allowing SMBs to focus on running and growing their business while having the confidence to know they’re IT assets and company information are safe.”
F-Secure’s PSB comprehensive security for desktop and laptop computers includes:
• Application control with Software Updater – this proactive patch management feature provides software updates and version upgrades at any time, from anywhere
• Rootkit detection with F-Secure Blacklight™
• Spam filtering
• Intrusion prevention
• Proactive protection with F-Secure DeepGuard™ 5 – a comprehensive, behavior-based analysis technology, to block new and emerging threats and detect exploit attempts without needing to know the technical vulnerability they are attempting to take advantage of
“Internet security is absolutely critical for small businesses, which are increasingly the target of online attacks and scams,” said Samu Konttinen, Executive Vice President, CMO, Customer & Market Operation at F-Secure. “That is why we applaud Comcast Business’s efforts to promote online security among its small business subscribers. With F-Secure, SMBs get complete security with among the highest detection rates in the industry. We have also gone to great lengths to make our cloud-based software extremely easy to use and unobtrusive, making protecting your business easier than ever.”
F-Secure PSB is currently available on the Upware™ marketplace from Comcast Business. F-Secure now partners with two of the top three telecom organizations in the United States.
