F-Secure Internet Security 2014: bulletproof protection, bad user interface

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | Feb. 3, 2014
Looking for ironclad protection? F-Secure Internet Security 2014 ($80 for the "lifetime" of your PC--up to seven years) is bulletproof, ranking among the best performers in AV-Test's protection assessments. But its interface is another story: If you don't think user-friendliness matters, wait until you see this suite.

We should also underscore F-Secure's unique approach to pricing: Whereas most of the nine other suites in our security roundup charge between $40 and $80 for a single year of protection but offer coverage for between one and three systems, F-Secure charges $80 to cover only one PC--but its coverage lasts for seven years (only Vipre, which charges $50 for two years of coverage for a single system offers more than a one-year term of coverage). Its pricing structure makes F-Secure a real bargain if you have just one PC to protect.

F-Secure Internet Security 2014 may offer top-notch protection, but so do several other suites in our roundup. Unfortunately, the program's antiquated interface mars an otherwise great product.
