Security for virtualized datacentres

The Fins are underestimated as a nation and are hatching a plan to move into the UK channel. So went this morning’s message from Helsinki anti-virus company Data Fellows, due to open its first UK office in Cambridge next month. The Melissa-busting Fins were keen to point out to that there was more to their home country than raindeer and fjords. Data Fellows’ new UK country manager, Jason Holloway, told journalists: "Finland has more Internet connections and more mobile phones per capita than anywhere in the world. It is a little known country, but very technically minded." The company, which makes encryption and anti-virus software, will open its UK base on 1 May. Holloway is the sole employee to date, responsible for developing channel business, recruitment and raising the company profile. Not to mention making the coffee and opening the post. Data Fellows also used today’s press conference to launch its F-Secure Workstation Suite 4.0, which combines anti-virus protection with encryption software. It integrates the company’s F-Secure Anti-Cirus, F-Secure VPN+ and F-Secure FileCyptio applications. "We operate through the channel wherever possible. Anything we can do to help resellers, we want to hear about," Holloway said. He added that the Data Fellows name was not as well known in the UK as the company would like. Data Fellows supplies its 200 resellers in this country through distributor Unipalm. The company said there were no plans to change this. Data Fellows also has offices in the US, Canada, Japan, France and Germany and is looking to expand into Scandinavia and Australia. ®
