    When will the new version of the F-Secure 2017?
    Competition already has new versions.
    What new can we expect from the new version of F-Secure in 2017 in addition to the improved engine?

    Hmm... Either before 2017 starts or sometime during 2017 maybe? :p

    Hopefully good zero-day behavioural protection features, such as virtualisation utilisation (via usage of hardware technology like VT-x/AMD-V SVM).

    It has a few more weeks/Release Candidates and then it should be ready.
    Before or around Christmas.

    That is, if they're gonna name it 2017 version :)

    I'm torn between Emsi and F-Secure, both work really well. I wonder why the latter isn't more popular.

    Even though I don't see much room for improvements, maybe they'll add something in the ransomware department.

    For sure improvements on DeepGuard and likely adding some virtualization techniques.

    They don't have any problem when it comes on detection since BD engine blends very well on the product.
