Member offer from F-Secure

Our Patron member F-Secure has an offer for all our members:

In recent years, remote working has become a regular treat for millions of employees, and a means to redress work / life balance. Over the last few weeks and months, this switch to remote work has accelerated at breakneck pace and across vast swathes of the workforce. The difference, however, is that the impetus has been a worldwide societal crisis, not cultural change.

F-Secure’s users and customers are doing things differently, often under duress and with all kinds of resource challenges, and we can’t do a good job if we don’t adapt to conform to their changes, too. One result of this is that a plan we’ve been working on for a while, has just been accelerated into production.

F-Secure has introduced Countercept Rapid, an essential version of their award winning 24/7 Managed Detection and Response service.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Quick deployment – up and running within a week.
  • Billed after the third month, pay (and renew) monthly after that.

F-Secures existing MDR service is usually provided via contracts of a year or more; it’s comprehensive and exhaustive, tailored to your organisational needs and it works exceptionally well. But not every organization wants to make a long-term financial commitment, nor do they need every single capability we provide over the short term.

Over the last few years we’ve seen the practice of business change dramatically; we’re seeing another seismic shift now. We must – and have – moved with the times. Countercept MDR isn’t going anywhere, but if you need to quickly build a relationship with F-Secure with something more flexible, a simpler service with the same quality and expertise you’d expect from them, then Countercept Rapid it is. Given more time, you can also move to a more tailored, long term contract if you want to commit to a longer term relationship – and if you need access to extra capabilities.
