Why is F-Secure using a network installer for downloading and installing the product?

This discussion has a more recent version.

F-Secure uses a network installer for the following reasons:

  • A network installer is typically smaller in size resulting in a quicker initial download. It takes over the downloading of additional components, thus making the installation more reliable.
  • The installation of the product is now faster because only the required product component will be downloaded and installed.
  • The network installer always installs the latest version of the product. This means that the user doesn't need to upgrade the product after installation.
