We’ve talked about Norton and Symantec on IdentityTheftSecrets before.
How could we not?
Norton/Symantec are some of the powerhouses when it comes to internet security.
In-house, they have teams of people working all day (and all night) making sure they are keeping virus definitions up to date, tracking trends in spyware and hacking, and developing new software to address new security threats (both on your computer and on the Internet in general).
Their Norton 360 product really does a good job of keeping your computer safe.
They do this by:
- Including several overlapping layers of protection. These layers work together while you’re durfing the Internet to make sure they are stopping viruses, spyware and other online attacks.
- Warning you (through Norton Download Insight) if you are going to be downloading a file or application that is potentially dangerous. This lets you make informed decisions about your security before you install or run a new program on your PC.
- Giving you very high level, and very in-depth information about all of the information on your PC, scanning in-depth and letting you know where the file came from (the Internet address) if it can be found, as well as if using that program or file is a good or bad idea.
- Lots of other benefits and features you can read about on their site.
And the 30 day free trial through their online virus scan (a scan which can be done for free), is something worth taking a look at.
Our big complaint about Norton and Symantec? It’s for people who don’t want to have to think about Internet Security and just want it taken care of for them.
We always advocate knowing more and knowing what’s going on behind the scenes. But here at IdentityTheftSecrets.com, we’ve come to realize that most people don’t want to be educated about Internet Security, or what’s going on on the backed of their computer.
If this sounds like you and you just want software to take care of your computer in 2011, we recommend Norton 360. It’s a bit of a resource hog, but you probably won’t notice it on newer computers, and it will work very well for most everyday users of the Internet.
