3 February 2005

Oy Stinghorn Ltd., producer of information security management products, and FRISK Software International, developer of F-Prot Antivirus, have entered into a strategic cooperation agreement. F-Prot Antivirus has been integrated into Stinghorn Secure Business Suite (Stinghorn SBS) centralized data security management platform and compliments the Stinghorn SBS e-mail filtering service perfectly. The merging of the two products into one package provides customers with an information security management system offering unique and complete information security.

"We are very pleased to have entered into this strategic cooperation with Stinghorn," says Helen P. Brown, Account Manager at FRISK Software. "Because of this partnership and the distribution channels to which we will have access as a result, F-Prot Antivirus products will now reach completely new markets. Stinghorn SBS centralized management and installation system will allow a whole new group of users to enjoy the data security and the peace of mind that F-Prot Antivirus protection provides."

"This agreement represents an important stage in Stinghorn's plan to develop the Stinghorn SBS platform to serve an even broader group of customers. F-Prot Antivirus is the first third party application that has been added to the Stinghorn SBS management system. Because Stinghorn SBS is based on well tested standard solutions and offers high level information security services to end users, we need to have a reliable and experienced partner to provide excellent antivirus software. Development of antivirus products demands expertise and know-how that FRISK Software has acquired over more than twelve years of antivirus research and development. The combination of FRISK Software's F-Prot Antivirus products and Stinghorn SBS information security management system results in a unique and complete information security product suite. In the future, we shall increase the number of our own information security applications as well as third party applications", says Stinghorn's Product Manager Jukka Niiranen.
