Photos of the new interface and features coming in September
As part of the release of Internet Security 2010 (IS2010) F-Secure has shifted its brand focus wholly to the consumer and SME market, with an accompanying logo change and redesigned interface.
An internet connection is required when installing, both to confirm the subscription key and to download the latest updates.
After confirming the subscription code users can opt to go through the installation process automatically or manually.
Those choosing to install IS2010 manually can opt to not have the parental control component installed if they wish, as well as receiving confirmation of any conflicting products that will be removed.
Once installed users can opt to install parental control for small children, teenagers or both. Businesses could also use this feature to restrict access to sites such as social networking applications.
These controls can limit the amount of total time spent online and/or restrict usage to specific hours as well as limiting what type of content can be viewed.
The newly designed main screen offers a large icon reflecting overall system condition and splits all other functions into three sections: Status, Tasks and Statistics.
The Status shows the condition of each separate component within the IS2010 suite.
The Tasks section lets users alter settings and access all the most commonly required functions.
The Statistics page provides a graphical breakdown of all activity of IS2010 to date, including any detected malware, blocked programs, infected email attachments and spam.
F-Secure's latest version of its desktop protection suite, Internet Security 2010, sees a completely revamped interface, as well as a host of new features and background changes.
