Helsinki, Finland – May 5, 2022: Cyber security provider F-Secure and retailer COURTS Malaysia have announced a partnership that will bring F-Secure TOTAL to Malaysia. The award-winning security solution is now available in 46 COURTS stores nationwide.
“Increased worries about online threats have led to consumers appreciating the value of security products, such as browsing protection, protection from unauthorized access and banking protection. We are delighted to help COURTS Malaysia offer F-Secure TOTAL which has been designed to be the answer to all security, privacy and identity needs of individuals and families on multiple devices,” said Paul Palmer, Vice President of F-Secure’s Service Provider business.
The Malaysia Computer Emergency Response Team reported over 10,000 yearly cyber security incidents from 2019 to 2021. In 2021, fraud incidents topped the list at 7098 cases, with intrusions ranking second with 1569 cases, followed by 648 cases of malicious code in Malaysia.*
The accelerated pace of digitalization combined with the proliferation of cyber threats make simple-to-use protection a priority for consumers, according to Harry Higashiura, CEO of COURTS Malaysia
“A satisfying customer experience is always our top priority. That’s why we partnered with F-Secure. F-Secure TOTAL has been launched with the product name of Protect 360 in giving our customers holistic security solutions when they shop with us,” Higashiura said.
F-Secure TOTAL is an all-in-one app that includes protection against malware and viruses. It includes safe browsing, banking protection, privacy protection, WiFi security, digital parenting, identity monitoring, and a password manager. Users can also set healthy boundaries for their children and protect their entire family with a single product. F-Secure TOTAL users can also enjoy the benefits of a fully integrated VPN technology that encrypts their connection to keep them safe from hackers and trackers on unsecured public WiFi networks at hotels, restaurants, and airports, all in one simple app.
These comprehensive protections help relieve the hesitations many consumers have toward technology. In a recent F-Secure survey, 69% of respondents said they avoid using public WiFi due to security and privacy concerns. 65% of survey respondents felt that the internet is becoming a more dangerous place.**
