    •Online Safety

    In general, it is Browsing protection module (and, maybe, Parental control functionality). More often it is about F-Secure Browsing Protection browser addon / extension changes.

    Possible to read Knowledgebase article about "F-Secure Browsing Protection" (extension / addon):

    •Ultralight Core

    Most likely, it is design itself. Its main "core". Ultralight design that was introduced and integrated to current F-Secure solutions. Main things and abilities.

    Ultralight's core are light-weight, cloud-based design and performance improvements.

    •Ultralight Updater

    I think it is "updater".

    •Universal System Scanner

    Technology for scanning abilities. For example, how it should handle certain cases, works with certain items. And, furthermore, ability to use multi-engine scanning design.


    What is your concern? It is just for information?

    Good if there will be any official replies from F-Secure Teams.

    I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions). And I do not able to explain exact tasks of each module more than generic view (only unofficial feelings).
