The provider of XLN Telecom’s anti-virus, anti-malware software XLN Secure has won an internationally respected industry award.
XLN Secure is a software download that offers business broadband customers protection against online threats such as viruses and malware, as well as providing an anti-hacker firewall. XLN Secure also offers abuse control to stop employees accessing illegal, unsavoury or time wasting websites while at work. The AV-Comparatives award was given to F-Secure Internet Security 2011. XLN Secure is a rebranded version of F-Secure Internet Security.
AV-Comparatives is a Non-Profit-Organisation based in Austria, which provides highly respected independent Anti-Virus software tests free to the public. Their best product award means that F-Secure was the best product in a test which simulated real life malware threats that a normal user might be exposed to on a normal day. AV-Comparatives awarded F-Secure seven out of seven Advanced+ scores – the highest possible scores in the different tests measuring the protection and performance of the main antivirus products on the market. AV-Comparatives also said that F-Secure had made the biggest progress in protecting consumers through innovative technology and described it as a well-designed product with a clear and easy-to-use interface.
Sallyanne Hutchinson, Head of IP Business at XLN Telecom, said, “Connecting your business up to the internet opens up huge opportunities, but the threats need to be managed sensibly too. Even one small lapse in a business’s online security can lead to staff wasting a lot of time and possibly losing money too. We really want to congratulate F-Secure for winning this award and we look forward to working closely with them to keep XLN Telecom as the safest possible provider of broadband to small businesses.”
