F-Secure selected by Microsoft for content security on Windows Home Server

F-Secure announced today that it has been selected by Microsoft as the first data security vendor for Windows Home Server.  On May 15 at the 2007 Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in Los Angeles Microsoft announced F-Secure software will interoperate with Windows Home Server to protect consumers against computer viruses and other threats from the Internet and mobile networks.
Windows Home Server is an upcoming Microsoft solution to help families easily centralize, share and protect their digital assets, such as photos, music and videos.
F-Secure provides protection for the precious and often irreplaceable content of the digital home on the Windows Home Server solution. F-Secure provides protection against virus and spyware attacks, guards against riskware and also includes scanning of hidden malicious software (rootkit protection). The F-Secure solution keeps itself automatically up-to-date with the latest protection against new threats and needs no user intervention. This ensures that home users can rely on Windows Home Server and can take full advantage of its data centralization and protection capabilities.
“F-Secure has a strong track record of providing easy-to-use security technology that reliably protects consumers against rapidly evolving threats. We are pleased to work with F-Secure to help customers secure their digital memories and experiences,” says Steven VanRoekel, director of Windows Server Solutions at Microsoft.
“This collaboration fits well in our product portfolio and we are proud to work with Microsoft to offer customers a solution to support Windows Home Server. We look forward to a continued strong cooperation with Microsoft,” said Kimmo Alkio, CEO at F-Secure Corporation.
