F-Secure's Endpoint Security Strategy Receives Highest Score in
Independent Evaluation 
Forrester Research Has Given F-Secure the Highest Score in Strategy
Among Top Endpoint Security Vendors Evaluated; F-Secure's
Anti-Malware Technology Has Also Been Cited by the Research Firm 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 --  F-Secure has scored
higher than eight other vendors in the strategy category in Forrester
Research's evaluation of top enterprise client endpoint security
vendors. The report, The Forrester Wave(TM): Endpoint Security, Q1
2013 by Forrester Research Inc., featured F-Secure as a strong
performer. 
The top strategy rating was based on evaluation of F-Secure's product
roadmap, cost and licensing models, and go-to-market strategies.
F-Secure was cited by the research firm for actively developing a
service-enabling platform, a vision that "closely aligns with the
bigger climate change happening in enterprise IT today, in which
organizations are moving to procuring services rather than products,"
according to the report. 
F-Secure's score was among the highest in the antimalware category.
Its rootkit detection and DeepGuard were recognized in the
antimalware engine category. The in-house research of F-Secure Labs
was also cited. F-Secure had among the highest scores for performance
and anti-malware detection precision, and was cited for receiving
excellent marks from customers interviewed by Forrester. 
Forrester Wave reports are leading vendor assessment tools. The
Endpoint Security report helps security and risk professionals select
the right partner to tackle endpoint security challenges.  
"I believe this evaluation confirms what I hear from our partners and
customers globally," said Pekka Usva, vice president Corporate
Security of F-Secure. "F-Secure has an extremely competitive security
product portfolio, we are reading the markets correctly, and we are
the most reliable vendor with more than 20 years in the security
business."  
Forrester's evaluation was completed prior to the launch of
F-Secure's newly unveiled patch management feature, Software Updater.
While it was not part of the evaluation, F-Secure believes the
addition of Software Updater represents a significant portfolio
expansion.
