"Uno de los mejores antivirus que he probado"

What do you like best?

Este es un antivirus muy sencillo de utilizar, y con un nivel de protección suficiente para el usuario medio.

En la pantalla principal de la aplicación aparece un breve resumen del estado de cada uno de los principales componentes de F-Secure: protección antivirus, protección de navegación y funciones de seguridad actualizadas. En está pantalla también está un botón para iniciar un análisis de virus y la opción Configuración.

En la página web podemos encontrar la sección de Reglas Familiares en la que puedes establecer los límites de tiempo, las horas de dormir o el filtrado de contenido adecuado. Esto se hace desde la web, y no desde la aplicación, porque estas reglas regirán para todos los dispositivos vinculados a nuestra cuenta.

Dispone también de una sección de herramientas, donde encontrarás opciones para ejecutar análisis más detallados o específicos, ver archivos en cuarentena, especificar archivos (como documentos confidenciales) que nunca deben analizarse, un registro del historial.

Además cuenta con protección bancaria, que se activa de forma predeterminada cuando entramos en la web de nuestro banco, de forma que evita que otros programas puedan interferir en dicha sesión.

What do you dislike?

Los ordenadores un poco antiguos y de gama baja, puede que vean penalizado su rendimiento, ya que este antivirus consume bastantes recursos. (En los ordenadores actuales no se notará que está funcionando en segundo plano).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es uno de los antivirus más rápidos a la hora de completar un análisis de tu ordenador. Este es otro factor que puede decantar la balanza a favor de este antivirus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ofertan soluciones especificas para las empresas, que mejorarán el nivel de seguridad de las mismas, manteniendo los ordenadores a salvo de cualquier amenaza.

"Un antivirus de los mejores"

What do you like best?

Aunque haya otros antivirus más populares, a mí me encanta este. Es muy simple, pero es que no hay que complicarse la vida (ni complicársela a los usuarios) para ofrecer un software de calidad y muy eficaz.

Permite ser usado hasta en 5 dispositivos a la vez, y ofrece un alto nivel de protección, para mí de los mejores, y tras haber probado varios he decidido quedarme con este: es eficaz y no ralentiza mi ordenador.

What do you dislike?

Hecho de menos que ofrezcan descuentos sustanciales para licencias a largo plazo (de 3 años por ejemplo), pero aún así es un antivirus bastante económico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo a los potenciales usuarios, si no se fían de mi criterio, que busquen en internet comparativas de antivirus, y que comprueben ellos mismos las valoraciones de F-Secure en esos test independientes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me ha permitido evitar ser infectado en varias ocasiones al navegar por internet, bloqueándome el acceso a la página en cuestión y reportando su peligrosidad.

What Threat Intelligence solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"e-F-icaz"

What do you like best?

Esta empresa finlandesa (supongo que de ahí la F de su nombre) ofrece un antivirus liviano, muy fácil de usar y tremendamente efectivo la hora de detectar, y eliminar si fuese necesario, virus y otros malware.

Ofrece protección en tiempo real durante la navegación por internet, bloqueando aquellas páginas sospechosas de albergar software malicioso, de forma que su prioridad es evitar la infección del equipo, pudiendo también eliminar virus que ya se hayan instalado en el equipo.

Dispone de la más moderna tecnología “endpoint protection”, que gracias al análisis heurístico y a sus algoritmos avanzados consiguen mantener todos sus dispositivos seguros y protegidos. También prestan especial atención al correo electrónico, con protección antispam y antimalware para evitar la pérdida de datos.

Aunque se pueden modificar algunos parámetros (no demasiados), F-Secure apuesta por la simplicidad, de forma que puedes descargarte la aplicación, y empezar a usarla (y a disfrutar de la máxima protección) sin necesidad de efectuar ningún ajuste: una vez instalada, ya comienza a funcionar, y arrancará con el sistema operativo cada vez que enciendas el ordenador.

La configuración que trae por defecto es la óptima, para conseguir la máxima seguridad sin penalizar el rendimiento de los equipos, por lo que si no se es un experto, es mejor no efectuar modificaciones.

What do you dislike?

En su afán por simplificar, que puede ser positivo en muchos casos, deja poco margen al cliente para personalizar el nivel de protección que desea.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mi recomendación tiene que ser comprar este software, ya que ofrece una protección de máximo nivel y por un precio muy competitivo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ofrece una gama de productos pensada para la empresa (Business), que presta especial a elementos que no suelen ser frecuente en los hogares, como las redes de equipos, y con un soporte especializado.

"Basic Characteristics of F-Secure"

What do you like best?

F-Secure provides the most advanced and affordable protections against viruses, spyware and infected email intrusions so you can enjoy the Web without worrying about security issues.

The interface of F-Secure is maintained with respect to previous years, based on predefined tasks and the possibility of adding or editing new analysis works, this allows a centralized distribution and management, especially useful for corporate networks.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I notice against, is that this antivirus is suitable for computers that have at least 512 RAM, The options for connection, search and protection are very limited and limited, forcing to have to support many unwanted secondary executions of the Program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Of course, it is one of the most recommended antivirus, because it is the most virus that detects and eliminates with rapids, very reliable, great protection guaranteed, great ease of use, real-time protection against viruses, eliminates everything easily, is easy to install and easy to update the virus base for better protection, it is very efficient, excellent and very timely.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It constantly monitors the heart of the computer, updating itself daily to keep up with all the new viruses and malignant programs that appear continuously.

"F secure antivrus not so positive experience"

What do you like best?

I like the simple user interface. It is very clean and easy to understand. It has a good and vibrant color scheme which is pleasing to the eyes and also incorporates various features for protection. I also like the fact that it has a mobile version.

What do you dislike?

The product is seems like a malware, especially by other anti virus software like Windows defender. There are multiple flaws in its scanning techniques which it makes it really inefficient to find vulnerabilities. From a network security standpoint it is far away from a cloud based solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Switch to a f secure if you need stand alone protection, for cloud based services stay away

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using F secure on older phones to scan for security threats. Since its a relatively lighter application it seems more useful for older systems and less powerful computers.

"F-Secure Review"

What do you like best?

What I like best about F-Secure is that they offer very hi-tech products that are really reliable and high quality.

What do you dislike?

In the past they had a type of third party spying program that I found a little bit baffling. I felt like this would increase security risks and open the door to hackers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say that it is definitely worth a shot to try it out at least once. It has superior antivirus system that will keep you safe from hackers, malware and cyber attacks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has kept my tech products successfully secure from malware and cyber attacks.

"One of the performing internet security suite "

What do you like best?

It protects the development system and finds threats perfectly. It has good support for windows as well as mac OS. The online scanner is a good tool.

What do you dislike?

It has not evolved much. Most usb connected devices are not scanned by it. It has high pricing and also don't support url scanning and blocking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used it for protecting some of our systems from malware, however we could have got out of it more if it had addressed some of the concerns.

"End user and administrator"

What do you like best?

The anti-virus engine was great, we did independent tests and this product always came out on top. They also have an offline scanner that you can boot the CD too to help scan for malware outside of windows. The management dashboard, we are an MSP, was helpful and gave good stats. I do not know what the management portal looks like for non MSP clients. The firewall was at times too aggressive by default and caused some issues.

What do you dislike?

On older machines it really was a resource hog. As mentioned above, firewall was at times hard to manage for a diverse set of computers. When I used the product there was no ESXi plug in for vShield to scan virtual machines. The server anti-virus was clunky to manage - it had to be done through a web browser, often times we did not not an extra web server running on a server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I still think this product is one of the best at catching viruses early on. Despite some management issues this is still a solid product which a good track record.

"F-Secure - resource hog"

What do you like best?

The management console was very easy to learn and manage corporate devices.

What do you dislike?

At first install the program seemed to work pretty well. But after a few engine updates every time a scan would start the computer would start to crawl. No matter what we did to the scans, adjust the time adjust the resource attributes, we just could not get it to run and finish in a timely manner. Then there was always the complaint that the users computer was too slow to even use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

check out their current products and do the evaluation. Be sure your environment is capable of handling the load placed on the systems during the scan process. Not just the 'high-end' machines, but all of them in the corporation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to eliminate viruses on the network. The anti-virus aspects of the product were very affective at keeping active infections out of the network.
