TeliaSonera Finland extended the features of the Sonera Desktop Security information security service to match the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises even better and to make the information security process more simple. The most essential new feature in the workstation-specific service is a browser-based management portal which means that protecting the workstation against, for example, spyware, as well as spam filtering and licence management are now straightforward.
The service is based on the F-Secure Security Platform for Businesses software and its management portal. With the aid of the portal, the customer company’s IT support personnel are able to monitor in a centralized manner all the workstations on which the service is installed. The state of the software is monitored in real time, which means that possible information security risks can be dealt with quickly. In addition, the management of the workstation-specific licences and running of weekly reports are easy in the portal.
In addition to the management portal, the new features in the Sonera Desktop Security service are protection against spyware and rootkit programs, and filtering of spam. The service has already in the past included a firewall and protection against viruses and intrusion attempts. Old corporate users of the Sonera Desktop Security service can update the new features in their existing service for an additional charge.
“Sonera Desktop Security service provides the IT support personnel of small and medium-sized enterprises a new kind of simple method to manage and maintain information security. The management portal gives them faster and more accurate information on the state of the workstations. Sonera delivers information security as a total service; consequently, there is no need for companies to invest in equipment. The entire information security package is delivered in one bundle,” says Department Manager Pasi Korhonen from TeliaSonera Finland.
“The challenges of information security include the ever-changing nature of the field, which requires special know-how on the part of the maintenance personnel and a vast amount or resources from the company. For this reason, the arranging of information security has often been expensive and laborious for small and medium-sized enterprises. The solution provided by F-Secure and TeliaSonera Finland combines the tools needed for securing information. Sonera’s customers obtain information security in a cost-efficient and effortless manner as a service. The service further strengthens the cooperation between F-Secure and TeliaSonera Finland,” says Vice President Kalle Korpi from F-Secure.
