F-Secure Internet Security 2007 - Weblog Post 1000 Posted by Sean @ 13:24 GMT

F-Secure Internet Security 2007 is now available. It has in fact been available online for a short time already (but we're now starting to see the boxes in the lab). It has a number of new features - some of which we have blogged about recently.

F-Secure Internet Security 2007

There's improved spyware protection (detection and handling),
improved spam control (e-mail based anti-phishing),
parental control user profiles (child/teenager/parent independently configurable),
and System Control with DeepGuard Technology.

DeepGuard uses techniques such as sandboxing, advanced heuristics, and behavioral blocking to help protect against undefined malware.

The System Control is the most important of the new features and has been the focus of our 2007 Beta posts. The beta test results were very promising - and not only to proactively protect those running version 2007. Samples submitted by DeepGuard users will help us add detections for everyone.

By the way - This is our 1000th weblog post. To celebrate the reaching of this milestone, we're going to give away some copies of F-Secure Internet Security 2007. All you have to do is to complete our challenge.

Search though our weblog archives for a hidden puzzle. That should get you started. We'll give away a copy to the first person from each continent to solve the puzzle correctly - just so one particular time zone doesn't get an early start. Good luck!

Updated to Add: Looks like we can now confirm at least one winner - from South America. Get busy Antarctica.
