"Data Fellows Corporation...announced that its award-winning F-Secure Anti-Virus product now supports the Solaris(TM) x86 and Linux(TM) platforms. F-Secure Anti-Virus has now entered carrier class in performance and manageability."

"Rated as the world's best anti-virus product, F-Secure Anti-Virus now enables service providers to break away from the restrictions imposed by older technology, such as gateway traffic scanning, and provide world-class anti-virus protection all the way to the end-user workstation."

"While the firewall or gateway approach does stop some malicious code, F-Secure Anti-Virus protects against a multitude of other sources that the gateway cannot control. For example, it enables service providers to offer protection against viruses introduced inside the firewall, from diskettes and CD-ROMs. In addition, it protects against viruses introduced through encrypted email attachments and Internet or other network connections that bypass the ISP."
