F-Secure Integrates PureSight’s Parental Control Features Into its Flagship ISP product — Security as a Service Suite
F-Secure Corporation (HEX: FSC) and PureSight, Inc. of San Clemente, Calif. today announced that the F-Secure Security as a ServiceÃ¢â€ž? concept is being extended to include Parental Control functionality based on PureSight, Inc.’s leading edge Internet Content Filtering SDK.
F-Secure’s Security as a ServiceÃ¢â€ž? concept, a turnkey solution to Internet Service Providers, already provides automated desktop security services like anti-virus, personal firewall and spam filtering that can be easily combined with an ISP’s existing service portfolio.

In addition, built-in customization and branding support allows service providers to bring the services into the market under their own brands.

The PureSight SDK, allowed us to easily integrate content filtering capabilities. We chose PureSight, foremost for its advanced, revolutionary technology. Furthermore, with no daily updates and minimum maintenance needs, PureSight has provided us with the best possible solution. As the need for protection increases, we are happy to announce that we are adding leading edge technology, such as PureSight, to our service provider concept,” says Kalle Korpi, Sales Director at F-Secure Corporation.
