F-Secure, KAON Broadband join forces to tackle smart home security

New partnership brings F-Secure SENSE to KAON’s Quantum Open Standard Platform.

Helsinki, Finland – March 24, 2021: Cyber security provider F-Secure and KAON Broadband, a source of integrated solutions featuring home network devices and associated revenue-generating services, are teaming up to bring world-class security to smart homes.

The partnership paves the way for KAON Broadband to include F-Secure SENSE – a connected home security solution – in its Quantum Open Standard Platform.

“Quantum Platform is a leading solution to the challenges service providers face in introducing new innovative services to their subscribers,” said Carlos Santos, KAON Broadband’s Head of Products, Europe. “Our App Store features a diverse cross-section of exciting services our partners offer through our open source-based license free platform. And thanks to our new partnership with F-Secure, we’re pleased to add world-class connected home security to our App Store.”

Concerns around the risks of using internet-connected technologies continues to grow among consumers. 84% of consumers in a recent F-Secure survey said that it was important or very important to protect all the internet-connected devices in their homes, with 72% saying they were willing to pay for that protection.

F-Secure SENSE helps internet service providers address those concerns. It protects all the internet-connected devices in people’s homes – including smart TVs, gaming consoles, baby monitors, and other devices unable to run traditional security software – from cyber attacks and other threats. 

Connected home security is just one of the award-winning consumer security solutions F-Secure delivers to consumers via partnerships with over 200 service partners throughout the globe.

According to F-Secure Vice President of Business Development for Consumer Security Paul Palmer, F-Secure’s work with internet service providers and their suppliers like KAON Broadband makes it easy for consumers to get the security solutions they need.

“Security can be a difficult challenge for consumers to tackle. The range of services, solutions, and companies is expansive, and information about their capabilities and how to use them can be confusing,” said Palmer. “Internet service providers are consumers' preferred choice to provide solutions to secure connected homes and smart devices in a fast and painless way, and we’re thrilled to work with KAON Broadband in making connected home security even easier for more people to be protected online.”
