F-Secure’s 2014 lineup adds new banking, Facebook tools
By Mike Williams
F-Secure has today launched its revamped range of security products, including F-Secure Anti-Virus 2014 and F-Secure Internet Security 2014. Top of the new Internet Security features list is probably the extended Banking Protection feature. This automatically kicks in at online banking and payment sites, and, the company says, "elevates security settings" so that "consumers can be sure that their banking transactions are safe and private". Elsewhere, the new Safe Profile app quickly scans your Facebook settings before producing its Privacy Report. This is organised into various sections -- Status Updates, Photos, Contact Details and so on -- where any relevant problems with your account are highlighted, and advice offered. Underlying improvements which also feature in Anti-Virus 2014 include DeepGuard 5, the latest edition of F-Secure’s behavioral monitoring engine.
