Deepguard is only version 5 in the new F-Secure 12 for Windows Servers product?

Dear Sirs,


It appears the new FSAV (E)SS 12.00 version contains DeepGuard 5.0 module. I heard the home-user and micro-business products, like FSIS 2016 have been using Deepguard version 6 since last autumn. What is the cause of such a difference?


I'm a bit worried, since F-Secure doesn't include dedicated anti-cryptor protections, so most of the task of combatting ransomware infection attempts falls onto the system and application behaviour monitoring Deepguard module, which must perform impeccably. An outdated Deepguard binary module could negatively influence the protection level of F-Secure 12.


Thanks for your kind attention, Yours Sincerely:

Tamas Feher, Hungary.

    Hello Tamas,


    The difference of DG versions in corporate and consumer products is caused by architectural differences of this products.

    The protection level of versions 5 and 6 is identical.

    Note that DG module is updating from the channel, and all products always have latest and greatest binaries in use.


    Best regards,
