A winning roadmap and strategy

Forrester Research Inc. gave us the highest score among all vendors for our product roadmap and strategy. So what is the vision behind that strategy? We're actively moving from software towards managed IT services for businesses via our network of service partners. It's a subscription-based model that helps partners build customer loyalty, leading to continuous revenue growth. And businesses get 24/7 coverage, improved protection, greater competency, and cost efficiency.

We also received some of our highest scores for our cost and licensing model, overall presence and go-to-market strategies.

Great anti-malware technology

We received the ranking of ‘Strong Performer' partly because of our high-scoring anti-malware technology, including rootkit detection and DeepGuard, our heuristical and behavior-based analysis technology. We also were noted for our in-house research lab, performance and anti-malware detection precision, and positive customer feedback.

Forrester's evaluation was completed prior to the launch of F-Secure's newly unveiled patch management feature, Software Updater. While it was not part of the evaluation, the addition of Software Updater represents a significant portfolio expansion.
