of criminal zero-day exploits, targeted attacks and mobile workforces, companies are increasingly seeking comprehensive endpoint security tools. F-Secure Client Secu-rity, a business-grade, centrally managed suite, addresses emerging threats, as Version 7 adds rootkit scanning and host-based intrusion prevention (HIPS).


Installation & FeaturesB+  
Both the Policy Manager and client software install in a snap. By default, the antivirus scanner does not look inside archives, or force a complete system scan upon installation, saving system resources and time. It removes other antivirus or firewall products, although it left Comodo Firewall on one of our test systems. Client Security suite consumed about 80 MB of memory on our test systems--a little high, but not excessive.

In addition to new rootkit scanning and HIPS capabilities, Client Security suite features an antivirus and antispyware scanner, mail and Web proxies, and client firewall. The proxies act as a middleman, inspecting email and data passed via Web browsers. This allows Client Security to remove malicious software before it has completely reached the system. F-Secure's excellent antivirus engine is known for its speed and efficiency; it displays the same competence in this suite.
