HKBN and F-Secure bring comprehensive privacy and security service to Hong Kong

HKBN’s offering of F-Secure SAFE, F-Secure FREEDOME VPN, and F-Secure ID PROTECTION help tackle consumer fears about online threats.

Helsinki, Finland – October 23, 2020: Today, cyber security provider F-Secure and integrated telecom and technology solutions provider HKBN announced to offer a new service that combines industry-leading internet security, online privacy, and identity protection. The service, consisting of F-Secure’s SAFE, FREEDOME and ID PROTECTION, provides HKBN residential customers with comprehensive online privacy and security underpinned by F-Secure's commitment to honoring the trust customer place in them to protect people's devices and data.


“Since we were founded in Finland in 1988, F-Secure has committed itself to protecting the privacy and security of its customers,” said F-Secure Executive Vice President of Consumer Security Kristian Järnefelt at F-Secure. “We know our customers trust us to protect their devices and data from a wide variety of online threats. And we’re proud to partner with HKBN to offer their customers the solutions they need to protect themselves while living their digital lives.”


A recent F-Secure survey found that nearly seven in ten consumers, 69%, are worried or very worried about someone hacking into their bank account to steal money. This is matched by the 69% who say the same about online shopping or credit card fraud, and nearly matched by the 64% who fear a malware or virus will lead to a loss of their personal data.*


HKBN serves 1-in-3 residential households and 1-in-2 active enterprises in Hong Kong with high speed fibre broadband, mobile services, managed Wi-Fi, OTT entertainment, technology solutions and more. It’s new service offers their customers the security solutions they need to address these concerns. In addition to F-Secure SAFE’s award-winning internet security and parental controls, HKBN customers can also benefit from F-Secure’s modern privacy and identity protection solutions.


F-Secure FREEDOME VPN is an award-winning privacy product that simplifies online privacy by putting everything behind a single button. It protects connections over public Wi-Fi or any network, blocks online tracking, allows changing the users’ IP address for an extra layer of privacy, and reduces country-specific content restrictions.


F-Secure ID PROTECTION – F-Secure’s newest consumer security offering – minimizes the risk of criminals committing identity theft by helping users create and safely store strong, unique passwords, alerting them when online services are breached, and providing guidance on how to recover from incidents.


Elinor Shiu, HKBN Co-Owner and CEO – Residential Solutions said, “HKBN is happy to work with F-Secure to offer cyber security solutions to our extensive residential customers base. As a leading telecom and technology solutions provider, HKBN believes in delivering blazing fast Internet as well as keeping our customers safe online. As the perfect companion to our all-in-one Home Gateway router offering home network security and parental control for all connected devices, this cybersecurity suite powered by F-Secure provides all-around, multi-device protection for our residential customers and their families, whether they are at home or on-the-go.”
