Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:FTR) announced today that its Frontier Secure suite of products now offers small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) greater security, protection and control. Powered by security leader F-Secure®, Frontier Secure’s Computer Security Pro for PCs/Macs and Mobile Security Pro for Android OS-based mobile devices offer an advanced, low cost and low maintenance solution designed to protect small and medium businesses from cyber threats. Kelly Morgan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Frontier Secure, cites security as a prime benefit of the new product set. "Small and medium businesses are losing revenue to security-related downtimes that average 2-3.5 hours, 2-4 times a year.” He notes that compounding the problem, “87 percent of SMBs have no written Internet security policy for employees and 69 percent allow employees to `Bring Your Own Device’ to work.” Morgan adds, “Our high-value solution, powered by F-Secure®, offers a web-based admin console able to manage mobile devices as well as traditional office PCs and Macs. With 99 percent of mobile malware targeting Android OS-based devices, Mobile Security Pro is an excellent first step into the mobile application space for Frontier and our customers.” Frontier Secure’s Computer Security Pro includes:
