F-Secure customers can now benefit from Cloud Protection’s ability to eliminate risks from malicious files and links uploaded by users.

Buckinghamshire, UK – 4th April 2017: F-Secure today announces it has launched F-Secure Cloud Protection on the Salesforce AppExchange, protecting organisations against malicious content shared in the cloud. F-Secure Cloud Protection checks links and files for malicious content as they’re shared through Salesforce, ensuring the cloud stays a safe place for companies and for users. The solution combines award-winning Best Protection* with easy no-middleware installation.


Businesses continue to migrate to cloud services, where they typically share the responsibility of securing their ecosystems with their cloud providers. These providers cover various aspects of system and application level security such as authentication, rules, and user permissions and roles. It is the organisation’s responsibility to secure files and links that customers and employees upload to cloud platforms. F-Secure Cloud Protection is beneficial for any company who seeks to mitigate risks in the cloud, providing protection against malware, ransomware and malicious links.


Built on the Salesforce Platform, F-Secure Cloud Protection is currently available on the AppExchange at


F-Secure Cloud Protection offers optimal benefits from both the security and the resourcing perspective:


  • Protection for cloud. An ideal solution to handle the customer’s side of the shared responsibility model used in cloud ecosystems, so that the company security strategy covers also cloud services.
  • Next-generation security. Much more than simple anti-virus. Includes real-time threat intelligence, smart cloud sandboxing and more.
  • Advanced analytics. Rich reporting, advanced security analytics and full audit trails allow for fast and efficient incident response capabilities.
  • Built on the Salesforce Platform. The solution has been built on the Salesforce Platform, ensuring smooth integration, reliability and an excellent user experience.
  • No middleware needed. Thanks to integration with Salesforce, there is no need to deploy or maintain middleware. Deployment takes only a few minutes, eliminating the need for an expensive IT project.


“With F-Secure Cloud Protection, we enable a holistic approach to security in company cloud environments,” said Mikko Peltola, vice president of business development at F-Secure. “Sharing content is a vital part of doing business and, with our solution, it remains a strong enabler to smooth business operations. This is part of our plan to develop new kinds of protection that provide security and peace of mind to cloud providers and their users.”


“We are extremely happy to work with F-Secure to protect our cloud environment,” said Dave Gardner, chief technology officer at Quad Learning Inc.. “Documents are uploaded and forwarded through our cloud platform to our partner institutions as part of our web application process. F-Secure Cloud Protection protects the schools and students using this process by screening files for threats like ransomware, malware and malicious URLs.”



“Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in the age of the customer,” said Kori O’Brien, SVP, ISV Partner Sales, Salesforce. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform, F-Secure provides customers with an exciting new way to protect businesses from malicious content shared in the cloud.”


F-Secure Cloud Protection enhances reporting by providing detailed real-time visibility to the content stored and accessed in the cloud including file names, types, users, IP addresses, file sources, upload and download actions and safety verdicts. It verifies the safety of links and files shared in the cloud, without hindering performance. Malicious links and files are blocked or removed, then logged and flagged for administrators for further analysis and action. The approach prevents cloud services from being used to spread malware or unwanted content, and allows IT admins to investigate and respond to threats. F-Secure Cloud Protection works in various Salesforce environments, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Community Cloud and Government Cloud.




*F-Secure is a five-time winner of the Best Protection award from independent test organisation AV-TEST, most recently for 2016.
