F-Secure Receives Product of the Year Award by AV-Comparatives

F-Secure Internet Security 2011 Leads the Industry With Consistent Excellence in Protection, Performance and Ease of Use

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - January 13, 2011) -  Rounding off a year of excellent test results, F-Secure Internet Security 2011 has been given the Product of the Year award by AV-Comparatives, one of the major independent testing organizations in the industry.

During 2010, AV-Comparatives has awarded F-Secure seven out of seven Advanced+ scores -- the highest possible scores in the different tests measuring the protection and performance of the main antivirus products on the market. F-Secure Internet Security 2011 has also won the Gold Awards for the Whole-Product Dynamic Protection and the lowest rate of false positives.

Andreas Clementi, Chairman of AV-Comparatives, said, "The Whole-Product Dynamic Test is the closest possible simulation of real-world malware protection, or what the average PC user would experience in real life. Beside the On-Demand Detection Test it may be regarded as the most relevant single test. Consequently, we felt this was another good reason to give the Product of the Year award to F-Secure."

In addition to the excellent test results, AV-Comparatives also notes that F-Secure has made the biggest progress in protecting consumers through innovative technology. F-Secure Internet Security 2011 is also described as a well-designed product with a clear and easy-to-use interface.

Mika Stahlberg, VP F-Secure Labs, said, "We are excited and proud that F-Secure has been recognized by AV-Comparatives as the Product of the Year. We have been among the top players in all of the comparative tests in 2010, as we continue to strive to be the best in breed. This recognition by AV-Comparatives proves that we are able to consistently and efficiently provide the highest quality of protection for everyone."
