When Norton gives you 360 Protection

We received a Norton Multi Device 360 suite and we decided to put it to the test , here is what we found . The 2013 edition of Norton 360 Multi Device  includes all the powerful protection found in Norton Internet Security, just packaged differently. It also offers full-scale online and local backup plus a full set of system tuneup tools.

Symantec, the company responsible for all Norton products, has made leaps and bounds with their internet security suites over the years. Norton 360’s settings page offers a set of quick controls to turn components on or off, along with nine links to additional pages of detailed setting and is quite different from the “Norton Internet security”  and “Norton Internet Antivirus”  in its design. The new 360  interface is easy to use on Windows 8, as that’s what it’s been designed for. It’s also effective on a Windows 7 computer

Security is essential  and so is knowing how websites fare  and so the new Scam Insight takes browsing data from Norton’s Insight network of anonymous user-contributed data to warn the Norton community when a Web site is potentially risky. Sites that are new or do not have an established reputation will be flagged, however this feature can be overridden

Security is also beefed up with Norton Intrusion Prevention System and the Norton Safe Web for Facebook app keep an eye out for threats such as linkjacking and posts with links to malicious sites. With  the customary quick scan, full system scan, and custom scan for viruses and malware, you can now have Norton scan your Facebook wall for malicious links as well
