Finland's F-Secure will work with India's Exatt Technologies to develop data security services for broadband.

Mumbai-based Exatt's 80,000 subscribers will be able to access F-Secure's security service.

"Entering into cooperation with Exatt supports our plan to deepen our footprint on Indian soil and offer ordinary Indian subscribers the possibility to surf the Internet securely and affordably. We are delighted to be doing business with Exatt and celebrate their choice to secure the Internet in a new and innovative manner," Jari Heinonen, Asia regional sales director of F-Secure, said in a news release.
