Announcement: New Knowledge Base
4 June 2020: We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Knowledge Base, Changelogs for Business Security Products, where you can find more details, such as bugfixes or new features, about the most recent releases of our business-related products.
Search, tag, columns, WoL... why there's not real evolution?
I'm using F-Secure for 2 years, with a lot of problems with Windows 7 (updating this workstations have never worked, it's ok only since W10 migration) and I still don't understand why key features are not present in your product.
First of all, your search engine is more or less... useless. It's not able to retrieve a string! We have to type the beginning of the string. If I search for "88GK", it don't find WK-88GK.
Tags are useful... but there is only ONE tag per station. No way to add user field. So, no way to order by specific user information.
Speaking of ordering, ordering by OS version only partially work: it's not possible to have specific Windows 10 version grouped (10.0.17 137, 10.0.18362...)
Always on search/ordering, it's unfortunately impossible to make multiple selection with shift and ctrl. Totally unproductive.
Concerning columns, it will be great to have a customized view, with choosen columns.
And finally, the update system, in addition to not always being functional (impossible to upgrade Windows 10 versions; the "service pack" update does not work), is not at all practical because it does not allow WoL (or, better - we can dream -, a sleep/wake system) nor the staggered updates (for example : make critical updates immediately, make other updates in the evening, gradually, make version updates only at night).
Bonus: web protection make a lot of false positive and browsing is sometimes much slower (on recent PC, great CPU and 100M fiber connection...).
Yes, so you will have understood that I'm not totally satisfied with F-Secure FSB. And I wonder about renewing it for our 200 computers. But I don't think there's much missing to make it a good solution. Too bad it hasn't changed much in the last two years (except for paid options...).
