F-Secure gets top marks for Anti-Virus by French Misc magazine

F-Secure, leader in antivirus and security software announced that its F-Secure Anti-Virus solution was selected ‘as one of the best’ in a comparative test of 12 antivirus solutions conducted and published in Misc magazine – a monthly magazine specialised in IT security.

Eric Filliol, of the Virology and Cryptology Laboratory of the School of Applications and Transmissions published the results of a comparative test of 12 antivirus solutions in Misc magazine entitled “Assessment of anti-virus solutions: when marketing goes against technology”.

Mr Fillion took into account two types of analysis for the comparative test including a technical part and an assessment of the usability of the solutions. With the publication of this survey, Mr Filliol stated the case for F-Secure Anti-Virus 2005 accordingly: “A reference and certainly one of the best products. Available for several platforms (Windows, Linux, several models of mobile phones), this antivirus benefits from the know-how of one of the best teams in the world in the field of antiviruses,” adding “The web site of this editor is without a doubt the most complete that you can find and is an invaluable help for the user. The quality of the specific cleaners of this company should be saluted. It’s currently the only vendor to offer tools capable of managing certain rootkits thanks to the Blacklight application.”

“This distinction, granted by an expert in the IT security sector, is for us acknowledgement of the expertise of F-Secure. Our objective is to always assure optimal protection for users, by protecting them from all threatening viruses,” comments Alexandre Durante, General Manager of F-Secure France.
