Re: "Installer is currently only available as a network installer"

Dear Petri,

 

Thanks for your prompt reply.is there any reason to remove f-secure firewall from business product?

Since ransomware protection(dataguard) is a significant feature,do you have a plan to intergrate with business suite?

 

Thanks

Hi,

Why did you delete Email and Spam scanning features?

Thanks

Re: F-Secure Computer Protection: Main differences compared to Workstation Security 12

The email scanning and spam filtering in Workstation Security 12 had a too limited scope. It supports only non-encrypted POP3 emails.

There is less and less usage of non-encrypted POP3 emails, as many companies are using encryption to protect the connection to the email server. In addition, there is a rapid growth of cloud based email solution.

It is not really possible to analyze encrypted emails from a client. F-Secure Computer protection has multiple layers of security to prevent a malware from executing and propagating after it is received, whether it is received from an email or any other channels.

So we decided to remove email scanning from the new client.

There is definitively value in blocking threats as early as possible, and companies should consider deploying an extra layer of security by adding an email security solution such as F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper next to their email server. Using encryption between the email client and server is also a good security practice.

Removing of email scanning is not the right move. Many organisation uses cloud based email services which may not have proper spam guard. here you are forcing people to buy mail security gateway. 2ndly , I as a channel partner, has cloud based email and my people roam with laptops only. hence the email scanning for me is very essential. Even in near past around 2 months back, some of the spams/ malware mails penetrate my mail server and reached my mail box. But due to F-Secure email scanning it was blocked successfully. Hence email scanning should be included. Moreover encrypted Email services are costly. 2ndly, the device control in PSB should be available after this new upgrade, but I am not getting any hints of that.

Thank you for your feedback. Your proposal on email scanning has been noted but we cannot make any promises on adding it back - that is not a straightforward yes/no thing.

 

As for the device control, it is off by default which may be why you are not seeing hints on it. Go to portal and turn it on, and you will see more of its blocking functionalities.

Hello,

 

Can we hope to see in the next upgrade, the capability to set the paramater "By-pass active connexions or not" on the Connexion control ?

 

Actually it is possible to fix it manually via the Computer Client but not via the Profil PSB...

On huge infrastructure with numerous clients, it will be appreciable.

 

Thanks for your feedback.

What's in a name. Computer protection sounds much cheaper then Protection Service for Business. It wasn't  easy to sell this in the first place for the current price. It will be much harder to sell this. Computer protection you can buy everywhere.

Re: F-Secure Computer Protection: Main differences compared to Workstation Security 12

Thanks for sharing your sentiment. The product overall is still Protection Service for Businesses, and Computer Protection is one component in that product replacing Workstation Security 12.

Dear Sirs,

 

I wish to ask if a fixed date has already been set by F-Secure Corp. for the centralized replacement of existing FSAV PSB WKS 12 installations with the new CP 17.x product?

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:

Tamas Feher, Hungary.
