Integrated patch management

Software Updater is an integrated patch management feature that comes with F-Secure server clients. Unlike with traditional patch management solutions, there is no need to install separate agents, management servers or consoles.

It works by scanning for missing updates in published applications and within server software. It creates a vulnerability report based on missing patches, enabling administrators to patch the vulnerable software when needed, or automatically—with an option for exclusions.

Software Updater covers over 2,500+ server and third-party software, such as Apache, BizTalk, Microsoft SQL, Flash, Java and many others. It can prevent up to 80% of attacks simply by preventing the exploitation of vulnerabilities, as they are commonly used as attack vectors.

Real-time threat intelligence

F-Secure Security Cloud is our own cloud-based threat analysis system. It utilizes big data and machine learning, among other input, to continuously add to our knowledge base of digital threats. Security Cloud is constantly in touch with client systems, identifying new threats as they emerge and providing protection within minutes.

A cloud-based threat analysis service affords many benefits over traditional approaches. We gather threat intelligence from a vast number of client nodes, building a real-time picture of the global threat situation. Within minutes, we use that knowledge to protect our customers.

For example, if DeepGuard's heuristic and behavior analysis identifies a zero-day attack, the information is shared with all protected devices via F-Secure Security Cloud—rendering the advanced attack harmless mere minutes after initial detection.

For more details on the functions and benefits of F-Secure Security Cloud, consult our technical white paper

Heuristic & behavior analysis

This new version of DeepGuard combines some of our most advanced security technologies, including artificial intelligence and machine learning. It's the final and most critical layer of defense against new threats—even those that target previously unknown vulnerabilities.

DeepGuard observes application behavior and proactively intercepts any potentially harmful action on the fly before it causes damage. By switching the focus from signature characteristics to malicious behavior patterns, DeepGuard can identify and block malware even before a sample has been acquired and examined.

When an unknown or suspicious program is first launched, DeepGuard temporarily delays its execution to perform a file reputation and prevalence rate check, runs it in a sandbox environment, then finally executes it for behavioral analysis and exploit interception.

For more information about the functions and benefits of DeepGuard, consult our technical whitepaper.

Superior malware protection

Our computer security component utilizes our multi-engine security platform to detect and prevent malware. It offers superior protection to traditional signature-based technologies:

  • Detects a broader range of malicious features, patterns, and trends, enabling more reliable and accurate detections, even for previously unseen malware variants.
  • By using real-time look-ups from F-Secure Security Cloud, it can react faster to new and emerging threats in addition to ensuring a small footprint
  • Emulation enables detection of malware that utilizes obfuscation techniques, and offers another layer of security before a file is run.

Proactive web security

Browsing Protection is a key security layer that proactively prevents terminal users from visiting malicious sites. This is particularly effective, as early intervention greatly reduces overall exposure to malicious content, and thus to attacks.

For example, Browsing Protection will prevent terminal users from being tricked into accessing seemingly legitimate phishing sites, accessing malicious sites through an email link, or getting infected through malicious third-party advertisements on otherwise legitimate sites.

The feature works by fetching the latest reputation check of the websites and their files from F-Secure's Security Cloud, based on various data points such as IP addresses, URL keywords and site behavior.

Browsing Protection is fully browser agnostic, as it works on the network level. This ensures that it still provides protection even if the end-user is not using company sanctioned browsers.

Secure your web traffic

Web Traffic Scanning scans HTTP web traffic in real-time, using multiple complementary anti-malware scanning engines and reputation checks via F-Secure Security Cloud.

Web Traffic Scanning is fully software and client-agnostic, as the technology is solely protocol based, enabling it to protect all HTTP traffic regardless of the source.

Real-time decisions made based on multiple complementary data points render Web Traffic Scanning vastly superior to more traditional signature-based technologies. Scanning on the network level is an extremely efficient way of detecting and blocking malicious content. It ensures that it will never come into contact with endpoints, vastly limiting attack capabilities and providing additional protection against more advanced malware, for example the memory-only variety.

Collaborate and share securely

We provide additional security components for dedicated SharePoint Servers. They ensure safe file sharing in intranet and extranet SharePoint servers, when the files are either uploaded or downloaded. You get an informative overview of what files have been scanned, with categorization.

The solution uses our multi-engine anti-malware platform. It offers superior protection to traditional signature-based technologies by:

  • detecting a broader range of malicious features, patterns, and trends, enabling more reliable and accurate detection
  • using emulation to detect malware that utilize obfuscation techniques, offering another layer of security before a file is run

Email security and spam filtering

We provide additional security components for dedicated Exchange Servers. They protect your company's email traffic, whether incoming, outgoing, or internal, from malicious attachments, spam, phishing, and offensive content.

The solution uses multiple layers of protection, including attachment control, intelligent file type recognition, keyword-based content filtering, archive scanning, and our multi-engine anti-malware platform. For spam and phishing, the solution uses a dedicated, best-of-breed anti-spam engine that ensures a high detection rate and very low false positive rate.

Additional protection for Citrix environments

On top of the same core security capabilities as for Windows servers, the Citrix component provides additional protection for Citrix environments by extending the integrated patch management capabilities for published applications. The client is Citrix Ready-certified, ensuring that it works flawlessly in Citrix environments.

Core security for Linux clients

Linux Security provides core security capabilities for Linux clients: multi-engine anti-malware and built-in firewall management, in addition to vital integrity checking. It is designed to detect and prevent both Windows and Linux-based attacks, making it particularly useful in mixed environments, where an unprotected Linux machine could be used as an easy attack vector.
