2. Software Overview

Symantec Norton Security is an Internet security suite that replaces the previous programs "Norton Antivirus" and "Norton Internet Security." It protects computers, smartphones, and tablets from malware and Internet attacks. The software requires an annual subscription fee that protects up to 5 devices.

Norton Security provides Threat Monitoring and SONAR technologies for 24/7 protection. The software combines feedback from millions of Norton users to identify incoming threats, such as viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, worms, bots, and rootkits, in order to avert them. Norton Security's protection is always up-to-date, ensuring automatic downloads and installation of product and feature updates, even when you are not using your device.

While some applications use a large amount of system resources, Norton Security executes with a small footprint. Therefore, the software has a minimal impact on the system runtime performance and boot speed. This is partially possible because of Norton Security's Vulnerability Protection, which locates the most vulnerable regions of the system and scans commonly infected areas, then efficiently allocates system resources to the places with the highest potential threat.

Norton Security is primarily installed on home devices, which include computers, smartphones, and tablets, but is also used by small businesses. Users benefit from the overall system protection, which protects devices from viruses, spyware, and other malicious threats. The software also protects devices against the vulnerabilities and weaknesses that reside within commonly used applications. Norton Security is a strong solution for protecting home users' computers.
