F-Secure introduces Internet Security 2010
With the launch of its flagship product, F-Secure also introduces the company’s renewed brand and commitment to “Protecting the irreplaceable”, reflecting the importance that security of digital content has in people’s lives today.

F-Secure Internet Security 2010 is a complete security solution designed to meet the needs of today’s Internet users – without slowing down their computers. It is light on memory use but fast and efficient in detecting all Internet threats.

The company says according to performance tests by the independent testing organization AV-Test.org, F-Secure Internet Security 2010 has 80% less overall system impact and 60% faster virus scans than the previous version. The product also uses 70% less memory than before.

New features also provide improved detection rates and a safer user experience. Unlike many other security programs, F-Secure Internet Security 2010 promises to not disturb or confuse the user as security problems are handled automatically.

F-Secure’s CTO Pirkka Palomäki says, “We have listened to consumers and have conducted extensive usability studies when developing the 2010 release. F-Secure has now responded with an improved overall experience including major performance gains and a great new user interface. At the same time we provide even better security with innovative new features like Browsing Protection. The result is a security product that sets new standard in safe use of the computer and the Internet.”

The Browsing Protection feature checks if web links are safe. When a Google search has been done, for example, it shows a green check mark next to safe links and a red ‘x’ next to harmful ones. It also automatically blocks websites that spread malware or try to steal the user’s identity information, such as banking details.

Browsing Protection in F-Secure Internet Security 2010 also includes the Exploit Shield which stops attacks that target security holes in the browser and in plug-ins. These holes typically exist if software hasn’t been updated with latest patches or fixes from the software maker. The Exploit Shield also protects against exploits of security holes for which there is no patch yet. .

Automatic updates and advanced DeepGuard cloud computing technology ensure fast real-time protection against new viruses, spyware, worms, trojans, rootkits and zero-day attacks. These cloud-based reputation services are now also utilized to strengthen the Parental Control and anti-spam features.
