Symantec unveils latest Norton products
Dubai, September 12, 2012
Norton by Symantec has released the latest versions of its award-winning core security products - Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, and Norton AntiVirus.
With five patented layers of protection, stronger social networking defenses, anti-scam capabilities, and improved cloud-enabled features, the latest Norton products set new benchmarks for protection and performance, a statement from Symantec said.
In addition, the latest releases are Windows 8 compatible and engineered to make it safer and faster compared with running Windows Defender on Windows 8.
When paired with Norton, Windows 8 is 50 per cent faster and 20 per cent safer than with Windows Defender, according to third-party testing. In addition, testing showed that Norton was able to correctly detect and block all the threats that Windows Defender failed to recognise.
“According to this year’s Norton Cybercrime Report, one in 10 social network users said they’d fallen victim to a scam or fake link on social network platforms. Today, consumers are living nearly every aspect of their lives online and often putting personal information at risk,” said Janice Chaffin, group president, consumer business unit, Symantec.
“With our latest releases, Norton responds to this and other consumer vulnerabilities with stronger social media and scam protection to ensure consumers are safe in the multi-device, Wi-Fi-enabled world.”
The latest Norton products are engineered to be safer, optimised for speed and performance, and simpler to use. In third-party testing, the new products ranked first in both protection and performance among a field of competitors.
The latest versions of Norton 360, Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus are now available for purchase in the US through various retailers and the Norton online store at www.norton.com.
The cost of Norton 360 is $89.99 and Norton Internet Security is $79.99. Both provide one year of protection for up to three PCs. The Norton AntiVirus is $39.99, and provides one year of protection for one PC.
In addition, Norton 360 Multi-Device (previously Norton 360 Everywhere) and Norton One will be updated with the features in the latest release of Norton 360.
