The Norton Antivirus Software has been recently ranked as one of the top 10 anti-viruses by CNN Tech. The protection device developed and distributed by Symantec Technologies has proven, especially in the last few years, that it is a very reliable tool against the threat of computer viruses and malwares. The product was designed to make things as easy as possible and its target is casual users. From the 2009 to 2012 edition, there has been a huge change in the performance of the Symantec Software.
One of the latest and most attractive products is the Norton One Protector. It’s priced at around 99.99 pounds or 150 dollars for a 12 month subscription and it is capable of protecting five devices at once. It is also one of the first products that offers service to Macs, Smartphones and Androids, which makes it well worth the investment.
Through this innovative, newly developed technology, Symatec seems to be moving away from the traditional antivirus models, to a more advanced strategy. The moment you activate your product, you don’t just get the tools, you also become member of the Norton Community. The tech team put at your disposal is trained to cater for your every need in the shortest amount of time. The program was ment to be personalized by each and every buyer according to personal needs. All of these things put together make it more of a service than a simple antivirus.
Installing Norton One is extremely easy because each buyer receives a link via e-mail containing the customized installation. According to CNET the development team really put a lot of effort into the new products, and Norton One was made entirely from scratch. The results are outstanding. Not only is the antivirus faster and more fluid, but it also has all the previous functions of the Symantec software incorporated in the final product. Sadly, it is only functional on Internet Explorer, and not on Firefox and Chrome browsers.
Another incredible feature of the Norton One is the automatic file backup system. Files can now be protected by creating a copy on the storage device or on the storage space provided by Norton, 25 GB of online storage space. You don’t have to do anything, because the program does it for.
The Norton 360 and Norton 360 Premium are also antivirus programs designed to protect the computer from spyware. While they are fundamentally the same, there are a few differences between the two. The traditional version offers 2 GB of secure online storage for the purpose of file backup, while the Premium version offers 25 GB of online storage.
We know it’s not the perfect software, yet, but Symantec has come a long way since 2009. The built-in callback option is a fantastic tool and the products are more responsive and light. All in all the features of this antivirus software make it an excellent all-round security package.
