Making social networks more secure. F-Secure.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, June 20, 2014

Helping to make social networks and more …more secure.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It seems hardly a day or week goes by when we don’t hear about another hacking incident.   Sometimes personal and financial data is compromised and consumers don’t know where to turn.   Facebook as teamed up with F-Secure…based in Finland…to help its users…and sends notifications when systems appear to have been infected.   Senior Researcher Timo Hirvonen…

“F-Secure is a small company but we have great technology, so it’s nice that Facebook who has one billion users, active users.  So they have the reach and then we have the technology to solve the problems.”

It’s free to the users.   F-Secure also sells a variety of online security products for computers and mobile devices.   You can find a one year license for up to 3 PCs for about 42 dollars.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
