Barclays endorses F-Secure software

By Derek Sooman on
Barclays Bank has taken the move of offering F-Secure’s Internet Security (comprising protection against viruses, spyware and rootkits) to its customers, replacing its previous endorsement of similar Symantec products. The deal, which will give F-Secure access to Barclays' five million online banking customers, is part of a wider drive to protect Barclays' customers when using the Internet. The threats of phishing attacks and identity fraud have become a serious matter, and Barclays wants its customers protected.

"Barclays has customised its Web site to support F-Secure antivirus product. Essentially we've built the back-end — customers can order our product from Barclays, but they are buying from our e-store. Barclays are the shop window, and we're the till, if you like," said Brian Gregory, Internet security business manager at F-Secure UK, told ZDNet UK.
