F-Secure Internet Security™ 2011 Offers Extraordinary Ease-of-Use With Multi-Layered Protection and Fast Performance for Computers

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) -  For F-Secure, Internet security is no longer just about developing world-class technology to fight against complex online threats. It's also about protecting people and their irreplaceable content in a way that makes security problems something everyone can understand.

Our intensive research into computer users' needs has produced security software that is easy to use and sophisticated in its technological capabilities to fight malware. The result of this user-centered approach is F-Secure Internet Security™ 2011, our award-winning product for consumers.

Antti Reijonen, VP Consumer Business & Marketing, F-Secure, said, "I'm confident that our consumer research has resulted in a security software that sets a new standard in ease-of-use and will continue to help consumers feel secure online. Its cloud-based technology and minimal system impact also makes it the most technologically advanced product that we have ever launched." 

F-Secure Internet Security 2011 has been designed to be non-intrusive. This means the product only asks for the user's attention when it's really necessary. The user interface is reassuringly simple and the installation is straightforward. Different components of the product can be conveniently enabled and disabled with just one click. Free telephone and email support is available 24/7.

F-Secure's smart cloud technology
F-Secure Internet Security 2011 employs the entire range of malware-crunching technology that we have developed over 20 years. The product gives multi-layered protection against all types of malware attacks, whether they target the browser, the file system or mislead users to click on links or attachments.

F-Secure's acclaimed smart cloud technology is capable of storing almost limitless data about all Internet files. F-Secure Internet Security 2011 can access the cloud in a matter of milliseconds for decisions about the good and bad reputation of these files, making its malware detection more accurate and the real-time protection of our customers stronger than ever.

A great performance
F-Secure's Internet Security 2011 does not come at the expense of performance. The product works fast and uses very little memory, so it does not slow down the computer.
