Norton 360 v2 introduces new backup options
Symantec Corp. have released Norton 360 version 2.0, its all-in-one security solution. The newest version of Norton 360 now includes Symantecís Browser Protection technology, which defends against drive-by downloads and other new or unknown threats that exploit vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer.

With advanced antivirus, antispyware, firewall, intrusion protection, and behavioral detection technology, Norton 360 users are protected on multiple fronts from online threats, like the recent Silentbanker Trojan, which take advantage of various points of entry to infect computers and steal personal information.

Now included in Norton 360 is Norton Identity Safe, which stores passwords and other personal information. Norton Identity Safe also offers convenient automatic form-filling capabilities and one-click log-in to trusted sites, and it works with Norton 360ís identity protection technology to safeguard against phishing sites.

More than two million Norton 360 customers have taken advantage of the productís online backup since its launch in February 2007. Users of the productís backup feature now have more storage options including Blu-Ray, iPods, HD-DVD discs, or shared drives, in addition to internal drives, CD/DVD drives, USB drives, mapped network drives, or external hard drives.

Another new feature to Norton 360 is Network Monitoring, which checks the status of wireless security, maps connected devices, alerts users when they are connected to an unsecure network, and provides advice to help manage network security settings.

Norton 360ís Smart Background Scheduler has been enhanced with the ability to prevent tasks from initiating automatically while in battery power mode and now throttles bandwidth for online backups to minimize impact on performance.

Other features include a Registry File Cleanup, for PC performance optmization by removing unneeded information from the registry. Norton 360 also provides a Diagnostic Report for easy system troubleshooting and problem solving. The productís Internet Browser Cleanup capability is also compatible with Firefox.

Norton 360 customers can receive Parental Control and AntiSpam through an optional add-on pack available via download at no additional charge. Norton Parental Control now allows individual user settings tied into existing Windows User Accounts and the ability to choose pre-defined profiles or create custom profiles that can be used once or reused. The new Log Viewer feature records attempts to access restricted sites based on user profile. The AntiSpam feature now also includes improved spam filter setup, retrieving and merging pre-existing white and black lists from Outlook e-mail addresses and pre-existing Norton AntiSpam lists.
