Symantec Releases Norton 360 Public Beta
Posted on 23-Nov-2006 10:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Symantec Corp. has launched the public beta of its new all-in-one consumer security service. Norton 360 combines Symantecís PC security and tune-up technologies with new automated backup and online transaction security capabilities.

The service helps protect consumers from internet threats, online scams and identity theft while safeguarding important documents, photos and music through automated online backup and restore functionality. Norton 360 is part of Symantecís broader Security 2.0 vision for the next generation of online security.

Norton 360 provides consumers with essential protection to secure their online activities and important data. The service offers protection from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, adware, hackers and other internet threats and risks. Norton 360 also safeguards irreplaceable files such as photos and music through an automated online backup service.

Users arenít bothered by constant alerts because Norton 360 automatically resolves the vast majority of security, backup and PC tune-up issues quietly in the background. Norton 360 also provides consumers with free 24x7 support via embedded e-mail and online chat, which will be active during the beta period.

Norton 360 is backed by Symantecís Global Intelligence Network, which consists of the Symantec DeepSight Threat Management System and Symantec Managed Security Services, providing more than 40,000 sensors monitoring network activity in more than 180 countries.

Norton 360 also takes advantage of Symantecís Phish Report Network, an extensive antifraud community where members contribute and receive fraudulent web site addresses for alerting and filtering, to protect consumers against fraudulent web sites.

Users can download the free public beta of Norton 360 now. Beta testers must have Windows XP and an internet connection, and they must uninstall other security solutions from their systems. The final version of Norton 360 is scheduled to be available for purchase by March 2007 in multiple languages and countries.
