This product provides a solid mix of security tools and utilities to secure and protect your computer. Of course, it comes with the defacto core products such as antivirus, personal firewall, and antispyware capabilities. It also provides protection when using user forums or blogs, as well as password protection to help users store and maintain sensitive information. As for the core functionality, F-Secure provides some of the best antivirus, antispyware and personal firewall protection available, as well as strong antispam capabilities.
The F-Secure Internet Security Suite 2007 also contains parental control functionality which lets you restrict the types of sites and content your children have access to. There is a Children profile, which is very restrictive, and a Teenager profile which is more customizable for older children. Parents can also control the times of day that each profile are allowed to access the Internet. Children trying to view websites outside of the allotted time are greeted by a Time Lock Block Page which can be bypassed by clicking on a different profile and entering the appropriate password.
There are some key elements missing from the F-Secure Internet Security Suite 2007 list of features. First, providing only security products is an outdated approach. Microsoft started a new trend, which Symantec and McAfee have adopted, of taking a more holistic approach and making a suite which not only secures the computer, but also helps to maintain the PC, improve performance, and protect data through backup and restore functionality. F-Secure does provide a 3-installation license to let you protect your household rather than a single PC, but they need to jump on the holistic bandwagon.
As for the security tools themselves, it would be nice to see protection against threats from instant messaging or peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, as well as tools to protect and secure home wireless networks.
