F-Secure Internet Security 2007 Released

F-Secure Internet Security 2007 ReleasedF-Secure Corp, leading Finnish internet security software vendor, has released Internet Security 2007. The new version features a number of remarkable new and enhanced features to further strengthen its leadership in reliability of protection in the data security market.

The new features make it easier for customers to take care of the wellness of their PC’s, and to protect their families and their most valuable digital assets. The risk of previously unknown zero-day threats being able to do damage is greatly reduced through the new F-Secure DeepGuard technology. Instead of just analyzing new programs once when they enter the system, F-Secure DeepGuard also will persistently monitor the behaviour of software in a real-time mode, scanning for suspicious program behaviour and stopping activities that might pose a risk. Competing one-time-only solutions cannot offer the same level of protection as it is possible for malicious code-writers to obfuscate, encrypt or pack the code in ways that prevent the one-time solutions from detecting it - and once the file has passed it will be free to do anything it wants.

In recognition of the increasing threat of spyware, F-Secure has improved its detection rates and removal capabilities by adding another spyware engine solution to F-Secure Internet Security 2007. The integration has been enhanced to include target scanning, in addition to real-time scanning and manual system scans.

F-Secure Internet Security continues to offer proactive protection for content sensitive family members thanks to the improved parental control application. Access to the Internet can be limited according to individually configurable content based predefinitions. F-Secure Internet Security 2007 now has three different Parental Control Profiles: Child (White listed sites only), Teenager (Content Based Filtering) and Parent (Full Access). Anything falling outside of the parameters set by these profiles is automatically blocked. As before, parents can also exercise their discretion over the time used by their children on the Internet using the Time Lock feature.

Speaking about the new product, Ari Alakiuttu, Vice President of Product Marketing said:

"Consumers have a right to data security products that offer them protection at every possible level of interaction with the online world. We believe at F-Secure that the latest version of F-Secure Internet Security 2007 incorporates world class features and will set the standard for all other data security products serving the home and small office segment."

F-Secure Internet Security 2007 (IS2007) is now available for download from F-Secure's e-store and will be available on retail shelves beginning October 31st. All customers with a valid F-Secure Internet Security 2006 service subscription will get the upgraded IS2007 for free. Microsoft Vista support, for both 32bit and 64bit, will also be offered for free to IS2007 customers at the end of Q1 (pending the actual release date of Vista). The new advanced features of F-Secure Internet Security 2007 will also be available for F-Secure's corporate solutions at the beginning of next year.
