Aquarius has been replaced with our new Capricorn engine. Capricorn is our new cloud-hybrid file and URL analysis service for F-Secure's endpoint products — for all platforms.

@Villethat's cool to hear! Hope it boosts the protection even further.


Seems it contains Avira databases (many files have Avira signature).

I noticed that now the FS installation folder is ~400MB in size, as opposed to over 1 GB previously (with Bitdefender sigs). That's good!

 

Maybe a bit lighter too, we'll see.

Wow! When will F-Secure Safe rely on this new engine? For what I understand it is only in beta version, correct?

Hi, @Palmeiras

 

The change takes place gradually from early Q4/2018 onwards. We aim to be finished early in H1/2019.

Re: FS Protection PC 17.5 releases

Hello,

 

My FS Protection TP215(?) is upgraded to fs protection 17.5 beta 11.

I was not near laptop during upgrade - but sounds that it was smoothly.

Previous recent events-list is cleared (?) and re-placed by freshly one.

Websites exceptions (allow and deny list) are saved. And all looks OK with installation.

just as feedback.


Another feedback is about Capricorn (only my own feelings):

-- no longer noticeable 'database-update' timeframes with performance impact;

-- less size for 'signature'-files; in addition, more speedy installation (for updates and fs protection installation itself) and reduced network bandwidth(?);

-- likely good detection rate around 99,99% (compared to previous Aquarius rate around 99,99999..%).

But I think that detection rate is possible to claim as 95% against all threats. What is pretty good for Home Users (in my opinion) and pretty enough.

Not sure about business environments (where too freshly and too speedy reaction is critical).

-- I am not sure - but looks like that (first) scanning took more time than with Aquarius (with all tweaks like scan inside archives and all file-types). Re-scan is maybe more brief.


Another feedback is about browsing. After some changes(?) and I am not sure that it is pinned to fs protection - time to time my browser's tabs are freezing and ?! some further impact. Does anyone with such experience about too (in case, if trouble is pinned to Capricorn or any other changes with fs protection)?

 

Thanks!
