F-Secure Announces its Arrival into the Content Cloud
SAN JOSE, Calif. – February 7, 2012 – F-Secure has been protecting consumers against PC threats and more recently, mobile threats, for over 20 years with its Internet Security and Backup solutions. The Content Anywhere solution extends F-Secure’s security heritage into content cloud and sync solutions, built especially for mobile and converged operators’ end-users.
F-Secure’s Content Anywhere synchronizes a user’s files in the cloud, making it accessible on any device, including PCs, tablets, smartphones and digital TVs, from anywhere and anytime during the day. Consumer ease-of-use is paramount when accessing their content from more than one device; therefore the user interface will be uniform across all connected devices. Operators will be able to offer a personal cloud to their customers to save, sync and share their digital content.
“The content cloud opens up a tremendous opportunity for operators. Consumers don’t want to compromise their cherished content by placing it online in the public space, but are instead seeking a service from their operator, which they value as trustworthy, local and safe,“ said Samu Konttinen, executive vice president of sales and marketing at F-Secure.
F-Secure continues to assert its leadership by providing a compelling range of solutions, beyond Internet security, that are tailored to the needs of operators. Today’s evolving digital lifestyle has fueled demand for safely storing and sharing content online. A recent survey* by F-Secure showed that 93% of consumers agreed that preventing the loss of personal content was very important, and 88% would like their service provider to package the services they need.
“Security is in our DNA, but it is now so much more than just anti-virus. Our entry into the cloud business with Content Anywhere ensures we continue to meet the need of operators in an environment now characterized by uninterrupted online access and an explosion in user generated content,” said Christian Fredrikson, president and CEO of F-Secure Corporation.
Content Cloud Platform
F-Secure Content Anywhere is powered by F-Secure’s Content Cloud Platform, which can simultaneously serve as the foundation for a content-centric service ecosystem with further additions to be announced throughout the year. Content Anywhere will be available through selected operator partners.
