F-Secure, one of our preferred IT security vendors was in the news last week. Tech research leader Gartner,Inc. named the Helsinki-based firm a "Visionary" in their 2016 "Magic Quadrant" report - the highly regarded annual evaluation of the competitive tech landscape. 

Gartner highlighted F-Secure's leadership position in "end-point-security"  - what we at TDS call "24/7 Device Security" in The Four Fundamentals of Cyber Security. Modern device security unifies the service to include antivirus, intruder protection, data loss protection, and a host of other measures to protect from threats that face our personal technology every day. 

“We believe Gartner appreciated our effectiveness against malware and our company focus (on device security). the blue and grey version of the F-Secure logoWe’ve already got hands down award-winning best protection, measured by independent tests. We’ve invested in threat intelligence and advanced threat detection, response and forensics ... and we’ll continue to press toward our goal, now as a Visionary.”  

Christian Fredrikson, CEO of F-Secure
