Re: F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus

So, is this a stand alone anti virus only product, ie, not an Internet Security type multi function suite?

Hello Simon,

 

It is not having all the functions that some of our other products might have but I still would recommend giving it a try as it is very impressive. 

 

And of course let us know what you think. :)

 



Best Regards

Re: F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus

Hi Ben,

I'd love to try it. Will it run alongside FS Protection, if the AV component of FSP was disabled? Only, I would feel less protected without Banking Protection and Deepguard, so would need replacements for those if they're not included in the new product.

Re: F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your interest!

F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus cannot run alongside FS Protection. You have to uninstall FS Protection before installing F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus.

As for the protection features, F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus includes a comprehensive set of features to protect you from various malware attacks. For instance, a new improved version of DeepGuard 6 is included with F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus. We also included features to protect the users from visiting malicious sites. Banking Protection feature is not included.

Re: F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus

Hi Alex,

Good to hear that Deepguard will be included. I will register for the beta to try on my secondary laptop, but without Banking Protection, or an equivalent function, I'm not sure it could be a product I would use everyday.

Cheers,

Simon.

Re: F-Secure Ultralight Anti-Virus

Dear Alex and Ben,

 

From a business perspective, how would you compare:

 

- F-Secure Ultralight versus F-Secure CPU Limiter?

- F-Secure Ultralight versus F-Secure Off-load Scanning Agent (SRS/SVCE)?

- What can be known about the novel capabilities of DG6 ?

 

- Will you be including Ultralight and DG6 in business protection products, like FSAV PSB / FSCS any soon? I think CPU Limiter would be a godsend for FSAVCS, as we get ever more complaint from business customers, rather than SOHO users. (If the office lady / salaryman / necktied slave goes for a coffee break while the workstation ratchets its HDD, that's lost money.)

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:

Tamas Feher, 2F 2000, Hungary.

Well, if you want a large group of people testing a new product, then you should spread the news on every possible news site (not just on a forum) and throw some nice screenshots to push interest!
