    short answer - yes
    long answer - yes, plus 2 more. 'orion' and 'libra'. One is their own engine. The other is a licensed f-prot clone.

    edit ::: wrong!!! see below.

    i thought f-secure stopped using f-prot. does this mean either libra or orion actually is f-prot using the fprot engine and definitions?

    Check out here that F-Secure uses a modified KAV(AVP) engine.

    It also uses 2 "in-house" engines; Orion and Libra. The older versions of F-Secure used the F-Prot engine but not anymore.

    1. AVP engine.
    -Originally developed by Kapersky
    -Traditional engine based on virus signatures.
    -Strong on 32-bit viruses.


    2. Libra engine.
    -Developed by F-Secure corporation.
    -Traditional engine based on virus signatures.
    -Strong on macro viruses.


    3. Orion engine.
    -Developed by F-Secure corporation.
    -Heuristic engine that detects only 32-bit file viruses.
    -Signature files used to handle false alarms.
