F-Secure SAFE 2014 Editor's Review

Not so long back, a majority of people used either desktop or laptop for web access and general computing needs. However, things have changed a lot in recent years. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to find people who use laptop, desktop and tablet for such needs, at workplace or home. It is quite obvious that they will need to use suitable Security suite for PC and devices. A computer specific antivirus suite cannot be installed on a Smartphone simply because the OS and architecture is different. However, you need not purchase separate security suites for all computing devices- when there is a multi-platform suite like F -Secure Safe. It covers up to 5 devices including computers, tablets and smart phones from malware and online threats.

The security suite made by the Finnish security company offers decent protection and security components but misses out on some fronts too. It can be installed on PCs equipped with Windows XP SP 3 and later versions. You can also install it on Macs but iOS devices are not covered. It is a multi-lingual app.

After installing, F -Secure Safe can be invoked by clicking the desktop icon. It summons a small dashboard which offers fast access to main components of the suite. The App has a sleek blue and white color scheme and uncluttered layout. The dashboard has 4 sections- Computer Security, Safe profile, Online Safety and F-Secure. Clicking on each module offers access to sub sections.

F -Secure Safe comes with anti-malware, anti-spam modules and also throws in safe online banking features. You also get parental control section. The Mobile Security, its Android app comes with remote data protection and tracing location of stolen laptop.

The app monitors for damages caused by malware and apps that seek web access. F -Secure Safe does not come with a dedicated two way firewall. Instead, it makes use of default Windows firewall. It is simply one way defense. Its Online Safety component includes online banking protection and monitors each site you visit. There is a content blocker section as well.

Scan options are numerous and they can be customized to an extent. A system scan takes a long time, in fact longer compared to most other suites. Malware detection and removal performance of the suite is quite good.

F -Secure Safealso impacts multitasking and CPU intensive tasks perceptibly. This is an area where several rivals like Kaspersky and AVG score far better. In benchmarks of independent virus testing labs, it scores well but does not get a spot among the top few contenders.

Unlike many competing IS suites, F -Secure Safe does not come with additional goodies. There is no online backup or PC tune up tool.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, intuitive UI.
•    Covers various devices with different OSes.
•    Online banking protection.
•    Parental control.

Negative Points:
•    No support for iOS devices.
•    No 2 way firewall.
•    No additional features.
•    System slowdown.

Conclusion:
F-Secure Safe is a multi-device security suite that covers various computing devices and offers decent malware and online threat protection. It has a sleek UI and fairy easy to use. The modules like Content filter and online banking protection work well. However, in some key areas the suite lags behind the competition. There is no dedicated two way firewall in the suite. It also lacks bells and whistles like integrated backup, which is being offered by many rival contenders. Another big drawback of the software is its slow scanning speed. Full system scans can be quite tedious to cope with. It also affects system performance, which mars its appeal.
