Update: Read my F-Secure Internet Security 2012 review
F-Secure have always had a great reputation for making top quality internet security and antivirus products.
Their latest offering, F-Secure Internet Security 2009, is a solid package which offers antivirus, antispyware, spam and phishing filter features.
It also features DeepGuard 2.0 cloud computing technology which provides automatic updates and protects your computer from severe threats which include terrors such as rootkits and malware.
It is very easy to install F-Secure Internet Security 2009 and it offers a whole host of features that will protect your computer from just about every type of virus, malware, Trojan and rootkit thats out there right now.
- Protection from virus and spyware
You may be amazed to discover that F-Secure Internet Security 2009 actually has the Kaspersky antivirus engine integrated with its technology.
What this means is that F-Secure Internet Security 2009 is able to detect and delete any kind of virus or spyware from your computer.
- F-Secure BlackLight
No antivirus program detects and deletes rootkits by itself.
There are many programs available which have to be run separately so that they can eliminate the rootkit-related problems from your computer.
F-Secure BlackLight, however, always stays alert and detects the presence of rootkits and instantly eliminates them from your computer.
- DeepGuard 2.0 Enabled
F-Secure Internet Security 2009 is the first ever antivirus to incorporate DeepGuard technology.
Deepguard is actually a cloud computing system, which enables it to protect your computer from any new threat within 60 seconds of its confirmation.
It recognizes each and every unauthorized external activity and prevents your computer from getting infected by new threats.
Any Internet Security system is incomplete without a healthy and trustworthy Firewall.
The most amazing thing about F-Secure Internet Security 2009’s Firewall is that its settings can be customized as per the user’s wish.
It keeps check on all incoming and outgoing Internet activities.
Whenever it detects malicious traffic, it blocks the Internet access to that particular application and instantly protects your system from viral threats.
You can even set your Firewall to work in Normal Mode, which would grant access to some of the basic activities like IM, email and IRC.
- Spam Filter and Anti-phishing toolbar
Spam is one of the most serious and common problems for just about every Internet user.
F-Secure Internet Security 2009 has an integrated program which protects your systems from unsolicited emails.
It’s anti-phishing toolbar provides extra layer of protection from serious spam and phishing scams.
- Parental Control
This feature is especially for all those parents who are worried about the kind of web sites visited by their children.
Parental Control features enable you to password protect some of the applications and programs to ensure that the Internet does not turn out to be BAD for your kids.
It even enables you to whitelist or blacklist particular web pages.
With all these features, F-Secure Internet Security 2009 has been released with one sole objective, “protection of your system from virus, spam, malware, rootkits and every other similar threat”.
With the innovative factors like DeepGuard 2.0 protection and BlackLight, F-Secure Internet Security 2009 is a stand out option for users who are looking for a trustworthy Internet Security package.
Whilst there are many feature-rich antivirus and security programs available today I do have to say that F-Secure Internet Security 2009 offers robust protection for all types of users at an affordable price.
