F-Secure Adds Endpoint Protection Solution to Global Partner Network


F-Secure, a Finnish cybersecurity company, has unveiled the Rapid Detection & Response endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution for managed service providers (MSPs) and MSSPs.

MSPs and MSSPs can use Rapid Detection & Response to monitor customers' IT environments and their security status, according to a prepared statement.

Rapid Detection & Response offers data analysis, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities and allows MSPs and MSSPs to identify and visualize cyber threats, F-Secure said. It also comes equipped with Broad Context Detection and "Elevate to F-Secure" features.

Broad Context Detection empowers MSPs and MSSPs to evaluate security data and distinguish malicious behavior patterns from normal user behaviors, F-Secure indicated. That way, Broad Context Detection helps MSPs and MSSPs quickly identify cyberattacks.

Elevate to F-Secure provides cybersecurity guidance to MSPs and MSSPs, according to F-Secure. It leverages cybersecurity experts from F-Secure's managed detection and response (MDR) team who offer recommendations to help MSPs and MSSPs contain and remediate cyberattacks.

Rapid Detection & Response is now available via F-Secure's global network of certified partners.

F-Secure Acquires MWR InfoSecurity

In addition to the Rapid Detection & Response launch, F-Secure in June acquired MWR InfoSecurity to bolster its cybersecurity services and detection and response solutions portfolio.

F-Secure has integrated MWR's Phish'd managed phishing protection services and Countercept threat hunting platform into its portfolio, the company said. Furthermore, F-Secure has added nearly 400 MWR employees to its team.

How Does F-Secure Partner with MSPs and MSSPs?

  • Cloud Protection.

F-Secure partners can provide solutions hosted in the company's cloud or on-premise and sold as a security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offering or yearly license, the business indicated.
