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.
