F-Secure Computer Protection product is a replacement for PSB for Workstations in the PSB product line.
F-Secure Computer Protection has been now made available for all solution provider level users of PSB. Each solution provider can decide if they want to make it available for the Companies under them.
Full details for system requirements, supported languages and operating systems is listed here.
couple of clarifications to questions coming to our direction.
Q: Do I need a separate subscription for F-Secure Computer Protection than for Workstation Security 12?
A: No you don't. Both of these clients can be installed with same "F-Secure PSB Workstation Security" -subscription.
Q: Can I installs both "F-Secure Computer Protection" and "F-Secure PSB Workstation Security" to same company?
A: Yes you can. At the moment you can choose which product you want to use. Each installation uses one seat from the subscription and you cannot install both product to same computer.
Supposedly there is also "artificial intelligence" equipped DeepGuard included in F-Secure CP 17.1 (although I don't know what exactly that means).
Meanwhile, FSAV PSB 12 has only DG5.0, even though DG6 has been available in the home-user products for a long time and we were promised it is going to be adopted in the for-business product line as well.
Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
Does this mean software currently only available for download from PSB portal direct to single clients - can I still download a single installer from clients portal, copy to USB and install on multiple devices?
It means that while you can take the installer on your USB stick, when run it will, for each installed client, download the product.
As I understood the Computer Protection client could be downloaded trough the Management Portal...
But on my/our portal, I can only see PSB 12 available for download...
How do I get the new client?
Is it possible to silent install it and provide the license key in the installation process for mass deployment ?
Ability to install silently (without any dialogs) is still on the list of things to add later. You can embed the keycode in the file name and it is used then as part of the installation process.
