1 min read MSPs
Businesses can now have all their devices, including smartphones and tablets, protected with one service solution. This gives a particular opportunity for all IT security service resellers.

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 release is an answer for today’s workplace where mobile devices are increasingly used to access e-mail and other business sensitive information.

“Companies are investing heavily in securing their corporate computers and networks. Yet mobile devices are given access to the same confidential information and often without any protection”, says Maria Nordgren, VP Channel Business at F-Secure.

Mobile malware families and variants are growing rapidly and F-Secure’s latest Mobile Threat Report* finds that this trend shows no signs of slowing down. F-Secure’s Protection Service for Business gives market leading protection against malware specifically designed for smartphones, for example 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 business 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. The partners comprehensively manage the 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,” says 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 just 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.
