According to Symantec’s latest Internet Security Threat Report, there were nearly one million new threats released into the wild each day and crypto-ransomware threats increased by more than a 4,000 percent in 2014. It’s increasingly important for consumers to take steps to protect themselves in this highly complex and connected world, no matter what device they are using.
Norton Security is a single service which is available for PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, iPhones and iPads. Norton Security comes with three different tiers of service that are created to meet customer needs: Norton Security Standard (for a single PC or Mac), Norton Security Deluxe (for up to 5 devices and platforms) and Norton Security Premium (for up to 10 devices and platforms, plus additional family features and backup). Some of the key features and protections across all three tiers of Norton Security include:
Backup precious files and images: Norton Security Premium offers consumers the option to backup and save their personal files, photos, videos and other memories on their PCs. Consumers can also purchase additional backup in 10GB increments at a prorated price, so they only pay for what they use and still only get one renewal bill.
Beyond Just Antivirus: Norton Security builds on patented innovations like Insight, SONAR and threat monitoring with aggressive threat detection techniques that enable it to identify even the most resistant threats. In addition, Safe Web, Scam Insight, Download Insight, and Anti-Phishing technologies share information with one another to determine if a site is being used as part of a new social-engineered attack scam.
Proactive App Intelligence: Norton Mobile Insight, a proprietary intelligence tool, crawls over 200 app stores globally to determine and provide dynamic analysis of app behavior. It protects against Android apps that leak personal information/content from devices, change settings, place ads in the notification bar, and require high battery or data usage.
Norton Family Premier: Keeping kids safe online should not be the end of their freedom but the start of an open conversation about building smart and healthy online habits. Norton Security Premium will now include all the advanced features of Norton Family Premier to prevent kids from sharing too much information and balance the time spent on their devices.
