F-Secure rolls out a ‘no-strings attached’ detection and response service

Helsinki, Finland – April 15, 2020: Cyber security provider F-Secure has launched a new offering based on its award-winning managed detection and response (MDR) service, F-Secure Countercept. The new offering, F-Secure Countercept Rapid, can be deployed in a matter of days and offers flexible pricing and operational simplicity to help it fit businesses’ changing needs.

With remote work becoming a sudden necessity and effectively is business as usual, companies are now facing unprecedented challenges. Changes to their operations, processes, and infrastructure have caused significant business disruptions at a time when cyber attacks are increasing.*

Many organizations are lowering quality controls while they make short term tactical fixes to support their remote workforce, increasing their exposure to threats and potentially debilitating cyber attacks.

“Remote work is the 2020 security trend nobody predicted. Developments such as increasing numbers of exposed RDP ports, more unpatched devices, and the ad-hoc introduction of BYOD policies, are new opportunities for attackers,” says F-Secure Executive Vice President Tim Orchard. “The smart way to do security provides companies with one or more safety nets while critical resources, such as email and other vital communication channels, continue to do their jobs.”

F-Secure Countercept, which won the Excellence Award in the Best Advanced Persistent Threat Protection category at last year’s SC Magazine Awards Europe,** is a fully-managed service that helps organizations hunt down threats and detect advanced attackers within minutes.

It provides threat intelligence, industry-leading detection rates, and advanced threat hunting capabilities, giving businesses sophisticated cyber defenses to combat modern targeted attacks as they unfold.

MDR solutions like F-Secure Countercept offer immediate value by providing organizations with a reliable defensive foundation they can trust. Using it as a bedrock helps secure the value of longer time-to-value projects to strengthen compliance, coordination, and correlation.

F-Secure Countercept Rapid provides this same value while offering enhanced flexibility in pricing and contract terms. Its operational simplicity ensures it’s fast and easy to deploy, making it an ideal fit for companies that have an immediate need for an MDR service.

Some of F-Secure Countercept Rapid’s key features and benefits include:

  • Simplified onboarding (service can be deployed in a matter of days)
  • Advanced Threat Hunting and 24/7 detection and response services
  • Easy upgrade to F-Secure Countercept’s full service
  • Personalized insights into tactical deployments
  • Notification of a detection within 15 minutes
  • Immediate remote response capability
  • Rolling contract
“The shift to remote work has bigger security implications than people realize. In many cases, the additional challenges can quickly overwhelm companies’ limited security manpower,” Orchard says. “F-Secure Countercept Rapid is essentially a no-strings attached way to quickly acquire world-class detection and response capabilities without worrying about how it fits into a long-term security strategy.”
