New IT security managed service for SMBs

Security firm F-Secure launches managed security service designed exclusively for SMBs.

Security firm F-Secure has announced a partnership with Hong Kong-based New World Telecommunications Ltd to launch a managed security service designed exclusively for SMBs.

The new PC Defense is designed to be a one-stop-shop for SMBs looking for affordable, reliable and responsive protection against new viruses and other computer threats. A dedicated support hotline is also exclusively set up for all PC Defense users.

Jari Heinonen, director of Asia Pacific region, F-Secure, says, "A research house recently predicted that 40% of SMBs that manage their own network security and use internet for more than email will experience a successful internet attack this year; and more than half of them will not know that they were attacked.

“The needs of IT security change continuously, which in turn places great demands on enterprises to increase know-how, resources and budgets to cover maintenance and upkeep."
