Cost of Cybercrime to Business Continues to Soar; High Detection Rates Save Money

A Detection Improvement of Even 1 Percent Can Potentially Save a Business Thousands in Malware Cleanup Costs; F-Secure Security Solutions* Detect New Malware at a Rate of 100 Percent

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- As the cost of cybercrime continues to soar, affecting businesses around the world, F-Secure is introducing the latest version of its corporate endpoint security product, F-Secure Client Security, with elevated threat detection technology that has been independently tested by AV-TEST with top-notch scores against new malware **, including support for Windows 8.

With businesses spending sizable sums of money to clean up damage from malware, high malware detection rates take on greater importance. Cyber attacks cost large enterprises millions of dollars per year, and some businesses can spend thousands per month. Small firms are also increasingly popular targets for attacks, as they are not as likely to be adequately protected.

"Not only are businesses spending for malware cleanup, they also have the costs of lost productivity, data loss, investigation and post-incident management," said Pekka Usva, Vice President of Corporate Security at F-Secure. "Add those together, and malware that has gone undetected can have serious ramifications to a business. Even a one percent higher detection rate can save thousands."

Attacks can include theft of an organization's intellectual property, confiscation of online bank accounts, distribution of viruses, posting of confidential business information on the Internet, and disruption of a company's network with a denial of service attack.

Detection for new and existing malware, centrally managed

Responsible for Client Security's high detection rate is DeepGuard 4, the latest incarnation of F-Secure's detection engine, which uses heuristical, behavioral and reputation-based technologies to provide proactive protection against both existing malware and brand-new, previously unknown threats. In independent tests for preventing new "zero-day" malware attacks, DeepGuard 4 performs at 98 to 100 percent, while the industry average hovers around 90 percent.**

F-Secure Client Security's enhanced protection for corporate desktops and laptops supports recent versions of Windows, including Windows 8, without compromising performance. Its improved browsing protection works with all major browsers.

Central management is taken care of by the latest version of F-Secure Policy Manager, the comprehensive and easy-to-use security management tool that allows IT administrators to manage and add new workstations, servers or remote offices using one central console. Among Policy Manager's new features are support for Client Security updates and Windows 8.

F-Secure Client Security and F-Secure Policy Manager are available through thousands of reseller partners globally.

* Based on AV-TEST's results for F-Secure Internet Security 2013 from July-December 2012. F-Secure Client Security 10 is based on the same technology as F-Secure Internet Security 2013.

**AV-TEST bimonthly test results: F-Secure Client Security 9, the previous version, was tested at 98 to 100% effectiveness against new malware in AV-TEST's report from July-December 2012. DeepGuard 4, part of F-Secure Client Security 10, received 100% detection results in AV-TEST's real-world testing scenarios from July-December 2012.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.
