If you’re a regular reader, you’ve probably noticed that something has changed about our blog…
That’s right: everything has changed.
When we started the original blog more than a decade ago, little did we know how popular it would become. From a few hundred visits per month back in 2004 to more than 100,000 now, the Emsisoft Security blog has become a major destination for people looking for straight-talking security advice from our team of malware and online security experts.
Sadly, while the actual articles have progressed in leaps and bounds since the early days, the blog page itself has received little love and was starting to feel inadequate for the breadth of content we are now offering our readers. We decided to change that and embarked on the biggest redesign of our blog ever. After lots of brainstorming and gathering feedback, we are excited to show you what we’ve been working on and hope that it will make discovering, exploring and sharing our content even better.
So, go ahead and check out our redesigned security blog now, or read on about the exciting changes you can look forward to.
See what’s new
Without further ado, below are some key highlights from the many improvements we have made to your Emsisoft Blog experience:
Visitors to Emsisoft’s Blog will now be greeted by a clearly structured home page, with a prominent “Featured Article” chosen by the team to highlight the latest insights into online security. The page itself is divided into clear categories with a selection of the latest articles for each, so it’s easy to browse through each section and dive into those that you find most interesting. From the latest videos, to Protection Guides and Enterprise Security, there’s something for every security-conscious reader.
All posts are now grouped into clear categories and can be accessed from any part of the blog using the new category menu. Each main category page has been designed with a clear purpose and provides an intuitive way to browse the most relevant articles. While the Emsisoft News articles are organized in a timeline, the Protection Guides are grouped by topic to allow you to find the most relevant information in one place.
Go ahead, have a look around!
First and foremost, a blog should be a pleasure to read. Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, reading should be a pleasant, distraction-free experience. We have reduced the clutter around the actual article text and adjusted the layout and typeface, creating the feeling of reading a high-quality book, whether it’s on a desktop or on your mobile phone on the go.
With hundreds of online security articles published over the years, our completely new search functionality makes finding that one article about ‘ransomware payment methods’ a breeze.
Simply click on the magnifying glass in the header to bring up the search box, start typing and results will appears instantly.
To achieve our ultimate goal of a malware-free world, it’s critical to share our insights and security advice with as many people as possible. We’ve now made it easier than ever to share articles or even sections of articles via social media or email: simply click on your favorite social network on our new sharing menu on the left-hand side to share the whole article with your friends and colleagues, or select a particularly insightful sentence or paragraph and share it via the new context menu that appears.
We want to hear from you
This article only touches the surface of all the changes we’ve made for you in our new Emsisoft Security blog, and we plan to continue developing it over the coming months.
