HELSINKI, February 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- This marks a very important evolution for F-Secure as it enters into the Content Cloud space with its flagship solution called Content Anywhere
F-Secure has been protecting consumers against PC threats and more recently mobile threats for over 20 years with its Internet Security and Backup solutions. This security heritage now extends into content cloud and sync solutions built especially for mobile and converged operators' end-customers.
F-Secure Content Anywhere synchronizes a user's content in the cloud, making it accessible on any device including PCs, smartphones, tablets and connected digital TV's, anywhere and anytime of the day. Consumers' ease of use is paramount when accessing their content from more than one device therefore the user interface will be uniform across all connected devices. Operators will be able to offer a safe personal cloud to their customers to save, sync and share their digital content.
"The content cloud opens up a tremendous opportunity for operators. Consumers don't want to compromise their cherished content by placing it online in the public space, but are rather seeking a service from their operator who they value as trusted, local and safe," says Samu Konttinen, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at F-Secure.
F-Secure continues to assert its leadership in providing a compelling range of solutions that are tailored to the needs of the Operator community that goes beyond internet security. Today's evolving digital lifestyle has fuelled demand for safely storing and sharing content online. A recent survey* showed that 93% of consumers agreed that preventing the loss of personal content was very important and 88% would like their service provider to package the services they need.
"Security is in our DNA but it is now so much more than just anti-virus. Our entry into the cloud business with Content Anywhere ensures we continue to meet the need of Operators in an environment now characterized by uninterrupted online access and an explosion in user generated content," says Christian Fredrikson, President and CEO of F-Secure Corporation.
Content Cloud Platform
F-Secure Content Anywhere is powered by F-Secure's Content Cloud Platform, which can serve as the foundation for a content-centric service ecosystem with further additions to be announced throughout the year. Content Anywhere will be available through selected operator partners.
