F-Secure Wins AV-Comparative's Whole Product Dynamic Test

F-Secure Internet Security Excels in a Series of Independent Tests in 2010, Providing Consistent Excellence in Protection, Performance and Ease of Use With an Exceptionally Low Number of False Positives

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2010) - 2010 has been an impressive year for F-Secure's product performance. F-Secure Internet Security's win in AV-Comparative's Whole Product Dynamic Test follows excellent results in a series of wide-ranging tests conducted by independent organizations around the world, including AV-Test, Virus Bulletin, NSS Labs and PC Security Labs. With remarkable results across the board in 2010, F-Secure Internet Security stands out from the competition for its protection and exceptionally low number of false positives.

Mika Stahlberg, VP F-Secure Labs, says "There are always differences in the testing methods of the test organizations. Vendors often do well in one test and poorly in another. The fact that F-Secure is among the top players in all of the comparative tests this year indicates that we can protect the user even if their behavior does not exactly mimic any particular test. This is very important as all users are unique, and we have proven to be able to deliver efficient protection for everyone."

Consistency has been the key of F-Secure's success in 2010. AV-Comparatives has awarded F-Secure Internet Security and F-Secure Anti-Virus seven out of seven of the highest possible Advanced+ scores in its various tests carried out during this year for protection and performance. For its 2010 Anti-Virus product line F-Secure received the most Advanced+ awards of all vendors*.

According to test results by AV-Test, F-Secure Internet Security offers excellent usability due to its low impact on system resources. It scored extremely high results for the static and dynamic detection of new malware while clearly out-performed the industry average in protecting against malware infections, as well as in the cleaning and repair of a malware-infected computer. F-Secure Internet Security received AV-Test's certification for its protection, repair and usability twice in a row. During the second and third quarter of 2010, AV-Test tested 19 security products of which only 13 passed the certification. Detailed results are available at www.av-test.org
