Espoo, Finland, June 24, 1999 - Data Fellows, one of the worlds leading developers of data security software solutions, today announced two new products to further fortify its existing line of Linux-compatible security products.
Says Risto Siilasmaa, Data Fellows President and CEO, "As Linux was first developed in Finland, we at Data Fellows know it well since we have been able to follow its development from the start.
"Linux is continuously gaining ground especially as an Internet server platform, which makes it important to be able to secure the files stored on and transferred through the operating system. Data Fellows holds Linux in high regard. We are especially pleased to support the expansion of Linux and are committed to making a very broad range of our products work on it."
F-Secure Anti-Virus for Linux, shipping today, provides the users with the best-of-breed, most comprehensive virus scanning and protection system, with automatic scheduled updates through the Internet.
F-Secure SSH for Linux, which has been available for a long time, provides the users with secure login connections, file transfer, X11 and TCP/IP connections over untrusted networks. F-Secure SSH uses the industry-standard SSH2 protocol which is widely accepted as a de facto standard for secure remote administration.
F-Secure NameSurfer for Linux, also available previously, provides network managers with an easy-to-use Web interface for DNS administration, saving time and maintenance resources. DNS translates host names to IP addresses and is a critical component of any TCP/IP based network.
F-Secure VPN+ for Linux, which starts shipping later this year, provides the user with the fourth generation Virtual Private Network software for secure networking. F-Secure VPN+ secures mission critical TCP/IP networking in local area networks, and between remote offices, business partners, and traveling employees. F-Secure VPN+ provides tested interoperability and compliance with the IETF standard IPSec and IKE protocols.
The F-Secure product family is available on a multitude of platforms, including Windows 95, 98, NT, 3.1, Linux, Macintosh, OS/2 , and NetWare. Prices start at USD $99 for each F-Secure product .
