By

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now klint finley Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts This week independent computer security testing organization AV-Comparatives named F-Secure as its product of the year for 2010. AV-Comparatives notes that being the overall best product of the year does not mean that a product is the best product for all users in all scenarios. What it means is that the product has receive the highest ratings in several tests, including malware protection, false positive rates and impact on performance. F-Secure and AVIRA were the only two products to receive an “Advanced+” rating for all seven of AV-Comparatives’ tests in 2010. AVIRA was a close runner-up for product of the year.F-Secure won the Gold award for the low false positives and a Gold award for Whole-Product Dynamic Protection. It was the joint-winner of the Gold Award for Whole-Product Dynamic Protection with Symantec. But F-Secure had a slight edge since unlike Symantec, no user-interaction was required to achieve its scores – everything worked well for AV-Comparatives right out of the box. As F-Secure explains on its blog: “We blocked 1946 of the tested files while Symantec blocked 1936. However, Symantec additionally prompted the user for his opinion on 19 files. They received half a point each for those.”Symantec won best product in 2009 and AVIRA won in 2008.F-Secure is based in Helsinki, Finland and was founded in 1988. It offers a business suite solution as well as personal solutions. F-Secure Internet Security versions 2010 and 2011 received favorable rankings from AV-Test in its Q3 2010 report. F-Secure did not receive a “Caution” rating in NSS Labs’ most recent report, but we can’t disclose any other information about F-Secure’s ranking in that test.Last year was a watershed year for antivirus testing. We reported on the changing state of the field last summer.

Syracuse Fans Took Out An Ad In Student Newspaper Chastising Administration For Botched Roosevelt Bouie Ceremony

By

first_imgSyracuse basketball has picked up two huge victories over Louisville and Notre Dame in the last week, but they bookended a home loss to Pittsburgh that also featured an embarrassing botched jersey retirement ceremony. The school retired the jerseys of greats Roosevelt Bouie and Louis Orr, but misspelled Bouie’s name as “Bowie” on the jersey it gave the former Orange center. While Bouie was very understanding about the mishap, Syracuse fans, who are already smarting from the program’s self-imposed post-season ban, were not happy about the oversight, which many deemed disrespectful. Two Orange fans let their opinion be known by taking out an ad in today’s edition of The Daily Orange, Syracuse’s independent student newspaper:suangryadThe letter is addressed to Syracuse Athletics’ Executive Senior Associate Athletics Director and Chief Communications Officer Joe Giansante, who referred to the gaffe as a “Snickers’ commercial come to life.”“It was not something that — how can I say it — it wasn’t something that you’d think would need to be looked at beforehand,” Giansante said. “There were a lot of people surprised. It was an honest, human mistake. It was a Snickers’ commercial come to life.”Giansante declined to name the athletic department employee who was tasked with the jersey.“Look, it’s an error,” Giansante said. “An honest mistake. We’re a team. An error was made and everyone bears the brunt of that, not a specific individual.”Giansante repeatedly referenced “regret” and “honest mistake.”“It’s not something you want to happen,” Giansante said. “You regret it.”Syracuse plays at Duke on Saturday. A third big win for the Orange late in the season would probably help put smiles back on the faces of Syracuse fans disgruntled by recent events like this.last_img read more
