Symantec announces Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac OS
Symantec Corp. have announced the new Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac, featuring vulnerability protection technology and antivirus for Mac users running Boot Camp or other Windows virtualization software.

Virtualization software are programs that allow users to run both Mac OS X Leopard and Windows operating systems on the same machine. This solution provides protection from both Mac and Windows-based vulnerabilities and viruses.

With Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac, users get comprehensive protection for two operating systems in one package. With this dual protection functionality, Mac users receive both the Mac antivirus solution Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac and the antivirus and vulnerability protection of Norton AntiVirus 2008 for Windows.

The security protection includes automatic updates from Symantec's global security network. Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac automatically detects and removes viruses, scans and cleans downloaded files and e-mail attachments, and incorporates discrete security alerts.

In addition, Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac is designed to automatically update itself in the background, allowing users to conduct their online activities without interruption.

"As the popularity of parallel operating systems increases, Mac users are at increased risk of vulnerabilities and viruses from threats targeted at both Macs and PCs. This is why an extra layer of security is needed -- to ensure users are protected against both sets of threats," said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corp. "Norton AntiVirus with dual protection gives Mac users peace-of-mind as it silently protects them from both Leopard and Window's-based attacks."

Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac provides an extra layer of protection against attacks that target software vulnerabilities on Leopard and Windows operating systems. This product includes both vulnerability protection -- which is new to Norton AntiVirus for Mac and intrusion protection included in Norton AntiVirus 2008 for Windows.

Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac also includes performance and engine improvements to ensure better compatibility and less impact on system startup and resource usage, so users can safely continue their online activities without impacting their productivity.
