F-Secure Protection Service for Business Now Protects Mobile Devices Too

IT Security Service Resellers Can Now Help Business Customers Protect All of Their Devices, Including Smartphones and Tablets, With One Service Solution

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - F-Secure today announced that it has released an updated version of its security-as-a-service solution, F-Secure Protection Service for Business, which now includes protection for smartphones and tablets. The latest release supports today's workplace where mobile devices are increasingly used to access e-mail and other business sensitive information.

"Companies are investing heavily in securing their corporate computers and networks. Yet mobile devices are given access to the same confidential information, often without any protection," said Maria Nordgren, VP Channel Business at F-Secure.

Mobile malware families and variants are growing rapidly, and as F-Secure's latest Mobile Threat Report* shows, there are no signs that this trend is slowing down. F-Secure's Protection Service for Business gives market-leading protection against malware specifically designed for smartphones, such as billing scams or spy-tools that steal contacts for spam lists.

Companies also need to secure precious data stored on phones against the common problems of device loss or theft. F-Secure protection tracks lost devices, giving businesses the power to remotely lock the device or delete all confidential information, preventing costly data breaches.

One portal covers all

F-Secure Protection Service for Business is typically sold to businesses through F-Secure's local reseller partners. With the new service, reseller partners fully manage protection services for laptops, desktops, email and file servers, and now also for companies' smartphones and tablets. Day-to-day operations can be handled remotely.

"Life has become even easier for F-Secure resellers. Now, all customers and devices can be managed through a single portal. This means less work for reseller partners and distinctive protection for the end customer," said Tapio Koskinen, Solution Manager at F-Secure.

F-Secure Protection Service for Business is ideally suited for businesses who want to buy a security service instead of only technology or software.

Providing the best protection in the world

F-Secure's protection solutions have consistently been rated for top performance over the years. F-Secure's Mobile Security was ranked as one of the best products in AV-TEST's Malware Protection for Android test in March 2012. F-Secure Protection Service for Business workstation and server products are based on the same technology as F-Secure Client Security, which received the AV-TEST Best Protection 2011 award in February 2012.
