F-Secure Delivers the Ultimate in Safe Surfing and Content Protection

F-Secure Safe Infinity, Offered Through Operator Partners, Safeguards Irreplaceable Content While Enabling a Secure Online Life

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2012) - F-Secure today announced the availability of Safe Infinity, the ideal solution that enables operators to meet consumers' need for storing important content in digital format, while protecting them from traditional Internet threats and also safeguarding irreplaceable content. Safe Infinity combines F-Secure's award winning* security platform with its cloud-based content backup and restoration solution into one convenient service.

"Consumers are mostly worried about losing content from their computers. Hard drive crashes and other mishaps can be just as real as a virus or malware attack. It therefore makes sense to use a service that safeguards both your computer and your content," said Sebastian Neittamo, Solution Manager at F-Secure.

Opportunity for operators

In a world where consumers are increasingly storing important digital content, the combination of security, content backup and restoration capabilities in a single service offers operators a great opportunity to build new revenue streams while continuing to earn customers' trust. In a recent survey completed by F-Secure**, nine out of ten subscribers agreed that preventing the loss of personal content is very important, while eight out of ten agreed that personal content is more important than the device that holds it. The survey also indicated that in nine out of ten cases, consumers would like their Internet provider to package the services they need.

"In today's competitive market, consumers are looking for real and tangible benefits. With Safe Infinity, loyalty is boosted with each file protected and stored. Safe Infinity also reaches out to users whose security needs cover both the online world and protection of their precious content," said Elizabeth Bell, VP of Global Marketing at F-Secure.

Safe Infinity covers all the functionalities available from F-Secure's award-winning Internet security service, such as anti-virus firewall, spam protection and parental control, as well as backup and restore functionality via the cloud. The services can be configured under the operators' own brand.

Safe Infinity is offered to consumers through selected F-Secure operator partners around the world, with the first services being prepared for roll out.
