F-Secure, a global leader in providing IT security solutions to small and medium-sized companies, today announced the launch of the latest version of its F-Secure® Anti-Virus(tm) for Windows Servers solution, version 8. F-Secure Anti-Virus for Windows Servers version 8 features several significant performance improvements. Version 8 features F-Secure's new scanning technology, which is capable of meeting the rapidly evolving and more targeted malware threat scenarios better than ever. Extensive testing of the beta version of the software also shows that the memory consumption of version 8 is, on average, up to 50 percent less than in the previous version.
Significant performance improvements in the solution enable companies to safeguard their Windows servers with a better level of protection and lower resource use compared to earlier versions. F-Secure Anti-Virus for Windows Servers version 8 provides real-time protection against viruses, spyware and riskware, and prevents infections from spreading across a company's network.
F-Secure Anti-Virus for Windows Servers version 8 supports Microsoft Windows Server 2008, which is set to be one of the major software releases from Microsoft this year. F-Secure believe that Microsoft Windows Server 2008 will soon become an important part of the corporate IT infrastructure Worldwide. F-Secure is committed to providing first class security solutions with clear added value for Microsoft server platforms.
With F-Secure, antivirus protection is fast, efficient and easy. Installations and management can be performed remotely from a single central location, saving cost and time for IT departments.
More than 1300 new virus detections are found each day at the F-Secure Labs, and some of these have the potential of spreading globally within hours. If a virus enters a corporate network, fighting it can prove to be both difficult and time consuming. Virus infections often result in significant financial losses due to network disruptions, decreased productivity, corrupted data and the leaking of confidential data. Even a company's reputation can be in danger if it unwittingly spreads viruses to its business associates.
F-Secure Anti-Virus for Windows Servers version 8 is an excellent security solution for companies that seek to protect their Microsoft server platforms with a centrally managed, efficient solution providing the highest level of security, but requiring less system resources. Deliveries of the solution will start in late April 2008.
