F-Secure Elements Endpoint Protection or F-Secure Elements Endpoint Detection and Response

Getting started with F-Secure Elements Endpoint Protection or F-Secure Elements Endpoint Detection and Response

Follow the steps below to get started with the above products.

Step 1 - Creating an F-Secure Business account

You will need an F-Secure Business account to access F-Secure Elements Security Center, which is the unified management platform for managing all F-Secure Elements products.

When you purchase the product from an F-Secure partner, the partner typically creates an F-Secure Business account for the first administrator in your organization. If this applies to you, you have received an email from F-Secure with a temporary password and a link to log in to F-Secure Elements Security Center.

If your account has not yet been created, but you have received a subscription key from your partner, you can use the subscription key to create an F-Secure Business account for the first administrator in your organization. To do that, use the company self-registration link for your specific region:

- For Europe, Middle-East & Africa: https://emea.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account

- For America: https://amer.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account

- For Asia Pacific: https://apac.psb.f-secure.com/#/create-company-account

After completing the company self-registration, you receive an email from F-Secure with a temporary password and a link to log in to the portal.

 

Step 2 - Logging in to F-Secure Elements Security Center

Use the Business account to log in to F-Secure Elements Security Center at https://elements.f-secure.com/

All product settings are under Endpoint Protection or Endpoint Detection and Response on the sidebar.

 

Step 3 - Adding devices to your organization

After logging in, add devices for management in the following ways:

  • Using an email invitation
  • Downloading an installer with an embedded subscription
  • Using a public download link

 

Using an email invitation

In Elements Security Center, select Endpoint Protection > Devices > [three-dots icon] > Add new device

Follow the steps in the wizard to select the subscription to use and send an email invitation to one or more users with a download link to the installer.

Downloading the installer

  1. Under Elements Endpoint Protection, select Downloads.
  2. Select the desired installation package.
  3. Select the product with an embedded subscription key that you can be distribute with your tools.

Using a public download link

The link to download the installer is in the Public Downloads page in the Downloads section in F-Secure Elements Security Center.

To install the product using this link, you must enter the subscription key manually after the installation.

We recommend using the link in the following special cases:

  • If you want to use deployment tools that download the latest installer and add the right key automatically
  • If you want to install a product and cannot log in to F-Secure Elements Security Center. Download the latest installer using the public download URL and then add the subscription key manually.

 

Step 4 - Creating additional administrator accounts for other users in your organization

To create a new administrator account, in Elements Security Center, on the sidebar, select Endpoint Protection > Accounts > [three-dots icon} > Create new administrator.

The accounts that you created have access to both Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Detection and Response if there is a valid subscription for these products.

 

 

Step 5 (Endpoint Protection) - Creating or cloning a profile and modifying security settings 

When you add devices to your organization, they are assigned a default security profile with the standard settings that create a balance between the security and compatibility for the existing applications.

To create your own profile that is tailored to the specific security needs of your organization, select Profiles and either create a new profile or clone an existing one to use as a basis. Then, assign the profile to one or more devices.
