F-Secure Provides Mac Protection for Home Users and Businesses

F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac Combines Real-Time Protection With Fast Performance for Home Users; Mac Protection Is Now Also Available as a Service for Companies and Is Included in the F-Secure Protection Service for Business

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - Macs today are increasingly popular with both home users and businesses. Many companies now have a mixed IT environment of Macs and Windows PCs, while Mac OS has long been the standard platform used by creative professionals, design, and advertising agencies. However, malware writers are now also targeting Macs due to their growing market share, after previously focusing almost exclusively on PCs.

The launch of F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac is a timely response to the increasing demand for Mac protection. The product has been designed with performance in mind, making it easy and fast to use. It provides real-time protection against all Mac-based threats, automatically detecting and removing any malware, and F-Secure's automatic updates ensure the best possible protection for Macs in today's rapidly changing threat landscape.

Maria Nordgren, vice president channels for F-Secure, said: "We know how important performance is for Mac users, so F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac has been designed to provide excellent security with maximum performance. Our business customers can also enjoy Mac protection provided as a service by a trusted partner. F-Secure Protection Service for Business makes it easier than ever for partners to manage mixed IT environments through one simple management system."

F-Secure Protection Service for Business is a complete security as a service solution specially designed for small and medium-sized companies. This subscription-based solution is like having a specialist security workforce armed with the latest technology -- at a fraction of the cost of hiring IT staff and purchasing technology. By leaving security management to the experts, the solution helps companies to focus on their business priorities rather than spending time and money on security issues.
