New Software Solution Brings Central Policy Management and Highest Level
of Protection to Fast-Growing Operating System

F-Secure Corporation, a leading developer of centrally managed security
for the mobile, distributed enterprise, today brought its acclaimed
firewall solution to the open source world. F-Secure Anti-Virus for
on Linux provides unsurpassed detection and disinfection of Internet-borne
viruses and malicious code passing through OPSEC CVP firewalls.

As with other products in the F-Secure Policy Manager family, the
anti-virus firewall solution operates under a company's established
security policies, transparently to end-users. This means that policies
be enforced, administered, and monitored remotely without disrupting, or
even being noticed by, a user.

Beyond ease of use, the advantage of user transparency means that
attachments are automatically scanned and disinfected without user action.
In fact, since the protection is installed at the gateway level, users
cannot bypass the service. By automatically scanning HTTP, FTP and SMTP
viruses and other malicious code as the data comes through the firewall
from the Internet, F-Secure Anti-Virus for Firewalls on Linux stops
before they can compromise corporate security.

Risto Siilasmaa, President and CEO of F-Secure Corporation said, "The
reliability of the Linux operating system has given great impetus to the
open source movement, attracting a worldwide community of zealous
developers. As a result of increasing adoptions and requests by our
customers, F-Secure brings our anti-virus solution to this important
environment, and in the process makes Linux a safer, more desirable
platform on which to base mission critical applications."

A world-renowned anti-virus research team enables F-Secure to update virus
databases daily. The content scanning server can receive database updates
automatically without manual intervention by the system administrator,
