F-Secure Unveils New Strategic Plans to Address Cyber Threats in Malaysia
“As we celebrate a memorable milestone in Malaysia today, I am proud to share that over the past decade, we helped ensure Internet freedom and security in the fight against thousands of different malware families. This achievement, and the progression of growth in the country underlines our overall strategy of growing from an antivirus company to a cyber security leader,” said Christian Fredrikson, President and Chief Executive Officer of F-Secure at a press briefing held in conjunction with the company’s 10th anniversary celebration in Malaysia.
F-Secure has contributed a total of RM270 million to the Malaysian economy over the past decade. With its Asia Pacific regional headquarters located here, the company aims to increase its investment efforts in supporting its future plans during the coming years, and to help steer Malaysia toward enjoying a safer digital environment.
“Due to the explosive growth in the number of Internet-connected devices both in business and in our private lives, cyber threats will continue to grow rapidly and evolve in both scope and sophistication. It has then become a crucial need for businesses, especially SMBs, to protect themselves with cutting-edge threat prevention and detection solutions which F-Secure can provide on a holistic level,” said Fredrikson.
He added that there is still untapped potential for the growth of cyber security in Malaysia, and the company looks forward to the next decade of defending Malaysians from digital threats through a holistic mix of deep cyber security expertise, along with its solutions and services.
In conjunction with its 10th anniversary, F-Secure recently gave out 3,000 free license keys for its popular Freedome VPN solution.
