Norton Delivers Protection for Windows 8, Social Networking and Scams

Norton by Symantec released the latest versions of its award-winning core security products, Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus, which are fully-compatible with the newly released Windows 8 operating system. 

With five patented layers of protection, stronger social networking defenses, anti-scam capabilities, and improved cloud-enabled features, the latest Norton products set new benchmarks for protection and performance. In addition, the latest releases are Windows 8 compatible and engineered to make Windows 8 safer and faster compared with running Windows Defender on Windows 8.

According to third-party testing, when paired with Norton, Windows 8 is 50 percent faster 1 and 20 percent safer than with Windows Defender. In addition, testing showed that Norton was able to correctly detect and block all the threats that Windows Defender failed to recognize.

“According to this year’s Norton Cybercrime Report, one in 10 social network users said they’d fallen victim to a scam or fake link on social network platforms. Today, consumers are living nearly every aspect of their lives online and often putting personal information at risk,” said Janice Chaffin, Group President, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec.

The latest Norton products are engineered to be safer, optimized for speed and performance, and simpler to use. In third-party testing, the new products ranked first in both protection and performance among a field of competitors.
