<p>It was 15 years ago this spring when F-Secure (then called Data Fellows) established the world’s first computer security vendor website. The latest version of this website at www.f-secure.com now introduces a new design and improved usability that aim to serve the needs of end customers as well as security specialists.</p>
<p>The F-Secure website has established a loyal following among security specialists, especially with the launch in 2004 of the F-Secure “Weblog: News from the Lab”, the first antivirus industry blog. The Blog currently has hundreds of thousands readers monthly.</p>
<p>Back in 1994, F-Secure’s website was the first to include a comprehensive virus encyclopedia. Since then, the worlds of Internet security and web design have changed dramatically and F-Secure’s website has also gone through several design changes over the years.</p>
<p>Stefan Konopatzki, Director of E-commerce &amp; Online Marketing at F-Secure, says: “We did not want to just adapt the old website, we wanted it to the next level in terms of design and usability and went back to the drawing board. The new website serves the purpose of each visit better and makes it easier for different types of visitors to find exactly what they are looking for.”</p>
<p>Today F-Secure’s website is accessed by hundreds of thousands of people weekly, but a significant peak in this number was seen when the Conficker worm was expected to become active on April 1st, 2009. During that week the number of visits to f-secure.com, and specifically the page offering the free Conficker clean-up tool, was almost 150% higher than average.</p>
