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.

Re: FS Protection PC Release 182

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 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.
