SAN JOSE, Calif. -- F-SecureR Corporation, a leading provider of co-branded security services delivered via broadband providers, today announced a surge of new partner wins in North America. In the beginning of April, F-Secure security services were available through 143 Service Providers in 34 countries around the world. New partner wins in North America further strengthen F-Secure's position, and include leading broadband service providers such as Cincinnati Bell, EastLink, EchoStar (Dish Network) Communications Corporation, TDS Telecommunications, VTR/Liberty Media and Wide Open West.

F-Secure's Protection Service for ConsumersT is designed specifically for network service providers, who prefer its managed security over competitive offerings because it is co-branded and fully managed for "turn the switch" deployment. F-Secure's security service has proven itself to reduce churn, lessen malware data traffic within broadband networks and reduce the volume of technical support calls.

Powering F-Secure's security service is award-winning anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-spam technology as well as F-Secure BlackLightT rootkit scanning and the new F-Secure DeepGuardT application to provide zero-day protection. F-Secure's security solutions are consistently rated among the best in the industry. In 2006 F-Secure ranked No. 1 in anti-spyware and F-Secure earned InfoWorld's Technology of the Year award. With an average response time of two to four hours, F-Secure responds to new virus outbreaks up to four times faster than its major competitors, according to AV-Test.org*).

"The success of F-Secure's Protection Service to Consumers is a testament to the industry's thirst for a robust yet easy-to-deploy security offering that requires little management and maintenance on the part of the service provider," said Curtis Cresta, F-Secure's vice president of North American operations. "Service providers such as ISPs, MSSPs and ASPs know they can trust F-Secure to protect their end users while greatly increasing subscriber stickiness and per-subscriber revenue."
