Damballa And F-Secure Partner To Deliver Secure Internet Services

Partnership will enable automated detection and remediation of infected subscriber devices on ISP and telco operator networks

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--F-Secure Corporation, an online safety and personal cloud provider, and Damballa, the leading provider of advanced threat protection solutions for identifying criminal actors in enterprise networks and malware-infected subscribers in carrier networks, announced a strategic partnership designed to provide a more secure and safer Internet experience for consumers.

The partnership will enable ISP and telco operators to use Damballa CSP and F-Secure Antibot to automatically detect and remediate infections on subscriber devices.

"The Damballa CSP (communications service provider) solution has been adopted by some of the largest network operators and is the gold standard for automating the identification of infected subscribers," said Pekka Mettala, head of global business development with F-Secure. "By monitoring DNS activity, and without requiring deep packet inspection, Damballa CSP is a very attractive solution for carriers looking to provide a secure Internet experience for their subscribers. With Damballa CSP and F-Secure Antibot, ISP and telco operators can now detect subscriber infections as well as automate the remediation of infections on subscriber devices."

"F-Secure is the global leader in providing security as a service through network operators," said Jennifer Byrne, vice president of global alliances at Damballa. "Through the partnership with Damballa CSP, ISP and telco operators will be able to notify and guide infected subscribers to F-Secure Antibot, protecting their customers from identity theft, loss of sensitive data and financial fraud. This is a huge win in the battle to provide a safer internet experience and to safeguard consumer data."
