DNA first in Finland to launch a new security service that comprehensively protects against online threats

Share

Data security threats, such as phishing scams for online banking passwords, are here to stay. At the same time, the need for protection against scams, identity theft and viruses has increased. Implemented jointly by DNA and F-Secure, DNA Digiturva is the first service in Finland to protect devices, personal data, passwords and web browsing all at once.

DNA Digiturva is a comprehensive security service designed jointly by DNA and F-Secure. It blocks security threats and protects all devices, personal data, passwords and internet use. DNA Digiturva runs on mobile devices with a single app, and the service can also be used on desktop computers.

“Today, everyone should pay attention to online security, and now this is done easily with a single app. DNA Digiturva protects against viruses, ensures online privacy, manages passwords and immediately alerts about data breaches. It is the first service of its kind in Finland that offers comprehensive protection against different online threats," says Cedric Kamtsan, Vice President, Mobile Business at DNA.

Many Finns are worried about their digital security. Loss of personal data following a data breach and problems caused by identity theft are seen as the most significant online threats. According to a DNA survey*, people also worry about payment card leaks, losing sensitive or important information, hacked bank accounts and viruses and malware, among other potential threats.

Parents of young children and teenagers, on the other hand, are concerned about harmful content and online scams, as was found in DNA's school survey**. The DNA Digiturva service also makes it possible to set family rules and limits on the online use and screen time of a child or teenager.

“DNA Digiturva is suited for a wide range of needs and households. Now, it is possible to protect against security threats identified in the surveys as worrisome to people,” Kamtsan says.

“Our thinking is that more people will protect their devices and data if we make security as easy and pleasant as we possibly can. Packing these crucial capabilities into one app ensures people get what they need in a single, hassle-free experience,” says Timo Laaksonen, Executive Vice President, Consumer Security at F-Secure.

DNA Digiturva is available for consumers at DNA's online store, dna.fi chat, DNA Stores and DNA's sales service. Businesses can get DNA Digiturva via dna.fi chat, DNA Stores and DNA's sales service.

A storm front is approaching Finland, should we unplug everything? Expert explains when such precautions are an overreaction and when not28.6.2022 14:20:00 EEST | Press release

Heavy rains, lightning and thunderstorms are expected to hit the western and southern parts of Finland during Tuesday and Wednesday. Many were taught as children that in the event of thunder, electrical equipment, phones and modems must be unplugged, but are the old instructions still valid? Sami Aavikko, CEO of DNA Store, says that in rural areas, you should still follow the advice, although in urban areas the measure is mainly useful as something that strengthens your sense of security.

Ukkosrintama lähestyy Suomea, täytyykö töpselit ottaa irti seinästä? Asiantuntija kertoo, milloin varotoimenpide on ylireagointia ja milloin ei28.6.2022 14:20:00 EEST | Tiedote

Rankkasateiden, salamoiden ja ukkospuuskien ennakoidaan iskevän Suomen länsi- ja eteläosiin vielä tiistain ja keskiviikon aikana. Monelle on lapsena opetettu, että ukkosella sähkölaitteet ja puhelin tai modeemi täytyy ottaa seinästä irti, mutta pitävätkö vanhat ohjeet yhä paikkansa? DNA Kaupan toimitusjohtaja Sami Aavikko kertoo, että maaseudulla neuvosta kannattaa yhä ottaa vaarin, joskin kaupunkialueilla toimenpiteestä on hyötyä lähinnä turvallisuudentunteen vahvistajana.
