MTNL has entered into an alliance with F-secure to provide security as a service to its Broadband and Internet customers. As an inaugural offer, MTNL together with F-Secure will offer to all MTNL Broadband subscribers the MTNL PC protection free for first 30-days.
The MTNL and F-Secure partnership will provide customers a very high level of security including proactive protection through F-Secure’s unique DeepGuard technology. F-Secure is the first antivirus vendor in the world to release a real-time protection network for consumers that enables global protection within 60 seconds from the first confirmation of a new threat. This is based on F-Secure DeepGuard 2.0, a technology that uses “in-the-cloud” computing to provide instant protection against new threats. The F-secure product protects against viruses, malware, adware, spyware, firewall, URL ratings and includes parental protection and time based restriction in its premium version.
With a range of products available, the association will give MTNL customers the latest antivirus offering that is value maximizing and caters to their needs of online security. F-Secure’s Survey clearly shows that people rely on their security software for online safety and secure websites to ensure the safety of their online shopping and banking. Just over 20% realize that appropriate online behavior on their own part also plays a big role. Respondents in India (70%) relied on the security software they had purchased or the security service from their Internet Service Provider.
By offering a price of just Rs 2 per day (Rs 60 per month) for PC protection after the first 30 days of usage, the secure browsing experience for Internet users will now become easy and affordable. [source]
