Security Software Giant F-Secure Selects Eucalyptus Systems for Private and Hybrid Cloud

F-Secure Expands Cloud Initiatives With Leading Open Source AWS-Compatible Cloud Solution

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Eucalyptus Systems, the leading provider of open source software for building AWS-compatible private and hybrid clouds, today announced F-Secure, the security software expert, has chosen Eucalyptus as their corporate wide on-premise cloud platform to host production, development and testing, and quality assurance (QA) workloads. F-Secure is leveraging Eucalyptus' AWS-compatibility to scale to the public cloud as needed.

With over 25 years expertise, F-Secure is the foremost trusted provider for personal and business security in over 20 countries around the world. Millions turn to F-Secure to protect themselves against security threats and vulnerabilities introduced through social media and mobile devices. To ensure the company continually provides the best in security solutions and personal content management, F-Secure needed an on-premise cloud solution that would enable them to rapidly innovate. To meet F-Secure's growing needs, the company chose Eucalyptus as its private and hybrid cloud solution after detailed 'head-to-head' technical trials of leading on-premise IaaS platforms.

"F-Secure leverages Eucalyptus to power the research, development, and production of the company's security and content management software which serves millions of users around the world," said Markus Melin, Director, Operations, Content Cloud at F-Secure. "Eucalyptus gives us the flexibility to scale our cloud resources so we can quickly and cost-effectively meet business demands from operations in over 20 countries. With around the clock access to highly secure cloud resources, our teams can focus on what they do best -- delivering software that protects and simplifies the digital lives of consumers and businesses."

F-Secure needed a private cloud solution that could be quickly deployed in various geographical locations around the world. More specifically, they were seeking a solution that utilized their existing infrastructure and security policies and complemented their current public cloud strategy. F-Secure evaluated multiple solutions to find out that only Eucalyptus provided them a solution to fit their immediate and growing private cloud needs and supported hybrid functionalities to scale production workloads to AWS.

Game-changing functionalities for F-Secure were:

  • Auto Scaling - Allows workloads to automatically scale to meet performance and SLA requirements using EC2 and Cloudwatch compatible APIs and tools.
  • Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) - Distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Eucalyptus instances, providing greater fault tolerance for applications.
  • Auto Healing - Maintains application workload capacity, even as underlying server resources fail, without impacting the application end user experience.
  • Custom Network Isolation - Eucalyptus Systems was able to quickly respond to customer requirements and deliver immediately-needed networking functionality.

"F-Secure's adoption of Eucalyptus will enable them to rapidly develop innovative products that protect their users regardless of device or location," said Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus. "This is the beginning of a great partnership where Eucalyptus and F-Secure can make sure that the digital world is a safe and useful place for everyone."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.
