F-Secure Client Security, version 8.00
We are happy to announce a new version of F-Secure Client Security. This release fixes issues from the previous version of the product. For details, please see the Release Notes.
What is new in the 8.00 release:
* Windows Vista support
F-Secure Client Security 8.00 now supports Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
* DeepGuard 2.0
DeepGuard can now do a query over the network as part of the proactive protection, which helps to reduce the amount of user prompting. This also brings improvements in the speed we can respond to new outbreaks of suspicious items, and improved accuracy.
* IPv6 protection
F-Secure Client Security 8.00 now offers IPv6 protection, meaning that all modules that offer protection support IPv6 (for example Firewall, Email scanning, Web Traffic Scanning).
* Core technology improvements for malware detection and removal
Fast and carefree maintainability of Virus & Spyware protection scanning architecture, allowing quick and smooth response to constantly evolving threat landscape.
* Neighborcast – increasing download performance
The improved F-Secure automatic update agent can now communicate with other clients in the Local Area Network, and share downloads with them. To enable this feature, turn on the Neighborcast Client and Server settings in Policy Manager Server’s console and distribute the settings to clients.
* Improved real-time scanning performance on removable drives
Enhanced logic of scanning to enable faster scanning for large files that reside on removable drives.
* Action taken when scanning viruses and spyware is unified
One decision about the treatment of malware is required. This affects manual scans and scheduled scans.
* Notification flyer for scheduled scans
A flyer will appear when a scheduled scan starts. Opening the flyer link will produce a dialogue that allows the scan to be aborted. Another flyer will appear when the scheduled scan ends, linking to a dialogue that allows the scanning report to be viewed. Flyer history will show past occurrences of the scheduled scan notification flyers.
* Updated scanning report to elaborate what happens
Scanning report has been updated to explain in more detail why certain files have been skipped.
* Dial-up Control
It is now possible for Client Security to monitor applications, which try to use your modem. This helps prevent unauthorized use of your modem by programs such as third party dialers, which may connect to high-tariff numbers.
* Cisco NAC Plug-in
The Cisco NAC Plug-in, previously called Cisco NAC Support, no longer installs a Cisco Trust Agent (CTA), but assumes that one already exists in the client machine. If there is no CTA, the plug-in is simply not installed either.
The CTA plug-in supports now also the version 2 of CTA.
* Updated identification and removal of conflicting programs (sidegrade)
Sidegrade has been updated to include more common conflicting products, and cleaned from the unnecessary removals that would not cause conflict with our software.
* Firewall “Open port”
F-Secure Client Security 8.00 now offers automatic creation of Firewall services and rules for quickly opening a new Firewall port.
* Web Traffic Scanning white listing in policy
F-Secure Client Security 8.00 now offers the ability for the corporate administrator to exclude problematic non-compatible applications from Web Traffic Scanning in the policy. This way the organization can use problematic applications and still have the web traffic scanned for malicious content.
* Improved interoperability with Web Traffic Scanning
The technology behind Web Traffic Scanning has been improved to work better with 3rd party applications.
* Includes all hotfix packages since F-Secure Anti-Virus Client Security 7.00 release
