    Hi @ClauA7X


    I can't give you any dates for production releases. They also happen at different times, depending on whether you are using F-Secure version or some operator branded version.


    However, I can tell you that we are only at the beginning of this version development so it will continue for months in beta.

  • Thanks for the attention @Ville
    one last question, can I use the betas versions on my main system?
  • yeoldfartyeoldfart Posts: 517 Superuser

    from my experience it's definetely yes, these releases may need some polish now and then, that's all. IMO these betas would qualify easily over many others from competitors.

  • I too have been using it on my main system without problems. Would recommend :)
  • And how do I participate? Do I need a requirement?

  • UkkoUkko Posts: 3,220 Superuser

    There is website-page about (with URL to signup):




    I able to add that I have experience with F-Secure technology-preview/beta under my main systems too. :)


    Mainly F-Secure technology preview can be more stable and high quality, than some of stable version "another company"'s solutions. But anyway you have to be with meanings - that just because this is beta/tp - so usually it do not recommended to use under the "critical for you" systems.


  • Thank you @Ukko  I sent the request to participate, it takes too long for them to accept me or not?

  • UkkoUkko Posts: 3,220 Superuser



    With work-days of week probably it can be more briefly. There was (under the community) that it can take some days.


    With my experience it was about weeks probably.


    Also - I think -  just because we talk about it under the community - so this information (that you did the request) can trigger more speedy process. :)

  • Hi,

    When is the DeepGuard 6.0 going to be implemented in the F-Secure Safe and F-Secure Protection?



  • Hi,


    I saw this "https://www.f-secure.com/documents/996508/1030745/deepguard_whitepaper.pdf" a while ago and was wondering when would Deepguard 6 see the light of the day.


    The "On the fly behaviour analysis optimisations" and suitable for modern Operating systems (I am hoping that Microsoft AMSI would be supported since this feature would make DeepGuard even more powerful and efficient and is a "must have" feature with Windows 10) are the key improvements made with Deepguard 6 (as far as I can see). But its already 2017 and even though Deepguard 6 was apparently to be introduced in 2016, it is not yet implemented in any of the F-Secure products.


    Any comments by F-Secure on the availability of Deepguard 6 in the consumer products would be appreciated.

    Hi @Pankaj1

    DeepGuard 6.0 is currently in the product. It was added in TP179 with the "Ultra Core" update.

  • Hi,


    Thanks for the confirmation on that. So DeepGuard 5 build 593 is basically Deepguard 6! I was just curious looking at the version and build number.


    Any exact details as to how Deepguard 6 is different from version 5. I have seen the whitepaper but was wondering if there is any thing in more detail.



  • VilleVille Posts: 524 F-Secure Employee



    That is funny. We had not noticed that about dialog shows incorrect version information. I will create ticket about it.
