F-Secure Integrates Content and Network security with Enterprise Management platforms from Computer Associates and BMC Software

Operation through Unicenter TNG(tm) and BMC PATROL(tm) Enables More Efficient, Effective Management of Network Security

ESPOO, Finland, Febuary 14, 2001 – F-Secure Corporation, a leading provider of centrally managed security solutions for the mobile, distributed enterprise, today announced integration of F-Secure products with the enterprise management systems [EMS] from Computer Associates and BMC Software.

Organizations that have standardized on Unicenter TNG and BMC PATROL can now use the familiar management consoles of these three market-leading frameworks to control and monitor most aspects of F-Secure’s products. As a result, IT administrators can more effectively and efficiently manage their networks and security, while preserving their investments in those management frameworks.

Providing a unique integrated security suite of products for corporate networks, desktops and laptops, F-Secure combines the four essential areas of data security –file encryption, network encryption, malicious code protection, and firewall functionality– into one centrally managed solution. The purview of these security applications ranges from the laptop to the desktop, and includes firewalls, servers, Internet mail, WAP Gateways, and other elements that comprise the information infrastructure.

The applications, which include various configurations of F-Secure Distributed Firewall, F-Secure Anti-Virus, F-Secure FileCrypto and F-Secure VPN+ work seamlessly together to provide the maximum protection for enterprises with networks and mobile, remote, or temporarily connected workers.

In adding F-Secure Integration for Unicenter TNG and F-Secure Integration for BMC PATROL to the F-Secure’s existing Enterprise Management Integrations offering, F-Secure signals a clear course to bring its security software into all of the leading enterprise management frameworks. F-Secure is the only vendor providing true security suite integrations for all major enterprise management platforms.

Risto Siilasmaa, President and CEO of F-Secure Corporation said, “With the increasing importance of enterprise management systems, vendors with specialized expertise are well-advised to integrate their solutions into the frameworks of market leaders like Computer Associates, BMC Software. This provides customers with the best of both worlds: optimizing their investments in expensive and often complex management tools, while taking advantage of best-of-breed security software. By accessing and managing F-Secure Workstation Suite and Content Security products through Unicenter TNG and BMC PATROL, users have the additional advantage of the familiar console, minimizing their implementation effort.”
