F-Secure RADAR wins vulnerability award

Cybersecurity company F-Secure continues to receive market recognition for their solutions with their latest accolade being the Champion Award given for their RADAR solution by German research and analyst firm Techconsult.

F-Secure RADAR is a PCI ASV certified, turnkey vulnerability scanning and management platform. It allows users to efficiently identify, evaluate, and prioritise vulnerabilities and security risks, even beyond their organisation’s own network assets.

Unpatched and badly configured software is a key attack vector and breach enabler, especially when it comes to more advanced attacks. F-Secure RADAR can significantly lower the cost of an organisation’s vulnerability management process by automatically and proactively identifying vulnerabilities – and prioritising them based on business risk.

Vulnerability Management (VM) is the process of identifying, evaluating, reporting, and remediating security vulnerabilities in business processes, web applications, and systems, as well as the software that runs on them. This is not the entire attack surface, however.

“Unlike F-Secure Radar, most VM solutions do not look beyond your own network,” explains F-Secure’s RADAR Solution Director, Teemu Myllykangas. “Often, elements of old services remain online, even after the service is shut down. They are forgotten and unmaintained, and thus are vulnerable. For an attacker studying your attack surface, however, they provide an easy-to-exploit beachhead to your network,” he adds.

F-Secure RADAR leverages the Finnish cybersecurity company’s trademark combination of human expertise and AI excellence. The expertise and real-world experience gained from F-Secure’s penetration testers and red teaming exercises fuel the development of the solution, providing award-winning value for its users.

Techconsult conducted a large-scale user study on IT security products for six solution areas, with 14 categories and more than 60 individual criteria. The evaluation, which involved more than 2,000 user companies completing an online survey, involved ratings regarding company, and technology/solution rating. Around 160 manufacturers offering IT security solutions on the German-speaking market were in focus.

“F-Secure was particularly convincing in the concrete solution evaluation, which achieved a place on the winner’s rostrum in several categories,” commented Marco Becker, IT market analyst at Techconsult.

“This latest award given to F-Secure for their popular RADAR vulnerability solution comes on the heels of two others from AV-TEST for their Protection Service for Business Computer Protection and their consumer-oriented F-Secure SAFE,” comments Grant Chapman, MD of local F-Secure Distributor Cybervision Pty Ltd.
