Whalebone brings DNS-based network security to F-Secure’s industry-leading device and connected home cyber security solutions to Service Provider partners.
Cyber security provider F-Secure and network security provider Whalebone have announced a new partnership to deliver DNS-based protection for mobile and fixed networks through service providers as part of a complete three-layered approach to protecting consumers against the world’s most advanced threats.
“Our strategy for seamlessly securing consumers using a layered approach empowers our service provider partners to protect their customers anywhere—at home, on-the-go and while using public WiFi,” said Antero Norkio, Vice President of Solution Management F-Secure. “Now with Whalebone’s fast and reliable DNS security combined with F-Secure portfolio, service providers can protect any device in the network and also create tiered security service offerings.”
Whalebone’s first layer of defense is complemented by two layers of security by F-Secure. Their product F-Secure TOTAL provides the broadest endpoint protection the company offers. TOTAL includes antivirus, personal VPN, password manager, and more. The second layer is F-Secure SENSE, which is a continuously updated security embedded in the Wi-Fi router and for full visibility to all home traffic along with the ability to provide advanced protection for all types of devices on network edge against cyber threats. All three layers work together to grant the state of the art protection to all consumer devices.
“DNS-based network security can be activated for the end-user with the press of a button, enabling maximum adoption and a faster, more stable network with reduced maintenance costs,” said Richard Malovič, CEO of Whalebone. “We are excited about the partnership with F-Secure. The commercial results of our 3-layer offering make it a must-have for every telecommunication service provider.”
Both Whalebone and F-Secure focus not only on delivering the highest level of security but also on helping communication service providers to position the security product portfolio. The joint philosophy of not being “just” a vendor but also a partner fully dedicated to the commercial success of the service providers is something that makes us ideal partners. The solution is exceptionally effective, yet easily adopted. This watertight protection will make the internet as safe as it gets for the end customers. On top of that, it will offer telco companies a great way to raise revenue while significantly improving their services and broadening their portfolio.
