F-Secure Protection Service for Business Responds to BYOD Work Culture

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 25, 2012

F-Secure 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, in which mobile devices are increasingly used to access e-mail and other business sensitive information.

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.
