Symantec Corp. has released Norton Ghost 14.0, its most advanced PC backup and recovery solution for the consumer market.
Norton Ghost 14.0 backs up and restores a user’s entire PC system, including all of its data – applications, settings, folders and files – and offers exclusive remote backup management, encryption and advanced compression features.
Using Norton Ghost 14.0, users can quickly recover lost or damaged files and restore from system failures, even if their computer’s operating system does not start.
Norton Ghost 14.0 leverages Symantec’s ThreatCon global security alerting system to identify threats, trigger automatic incremental backups and protect the user’s system before an external attack can occur.
It also offers protection and enhanced performance with new features, such as offsite backup to an FTP site or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices, in addition to long-standing features like remote management and LightsOut Restore capability.
With Norton Ghost 14.0, users can backup an entire system or only specific files and folders. Incremental backups and enhanced compression help reduce the amount of required storage, while the product’s encryption technology helps keep all of the stored data safe and protected. Norton Ghost 14.0 also integrates with Google Desktop, providing users with access to fully-searchable backup indexes.
“PC users need complete protection from unforeseen threats to system data,” said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president consumer products and solutions, Symantec Corp. “Even if users diligently backup their systems, their PCs remain vulnerable to today’s most prevalent and potentially system-crippling threats. Norton Ghost 14.0 provides comprehensive protection from data loss by using the most advanced PC backup and recovery tools in the industry.”
Norton Ghost 14.0 works with most storage drives, including external hard drives, networked drives, and recordable and rewritable CDs and DVDs.
The software is available for purchase through the Symantec Store on-line, at various online outlets and at select retail locations for an estimated retail price of NZ$99.95.
