Norton 360 Version 6.0
16 February 2012
Summary: Norton 360 Version 6.0 gives you all the same protective features as Norton Internet Security 2012, with a friendlier face. You also get flexible backup, including 2GB of online storage. Tuneup features are also useful, especially the diagnostic report. This full-featured suite is definitely a good choice.
Pros: Remote Management. Self-healing. Very good antivirus. Intelligent firewall. Accurate antispam. Excellent antiphishing. Password management and form-filling now portable, Web-accessible. 2GB online backup; local backup too. Useful tuneup features.
Cons: Premier parental control features cost extra.
Summary: Verdict: The latest version of Norton 360 offer strong security features and equally useful PC tune up functionality. Thanks to its intuitive interface it’s easy-to-use regardless of your skill level.
Pros: Quick to install, inviting and intuitive interface, doesn’t negatively impact system performance when running, useful disk and PC maintenance utilities, comprehensive firewall.
Cons: Updates can be quite large, still among the more expensive security suites on the market.
Summary: A raft of small but useful improvements make Norton 360 2.0 a useful addition to anyone's utility tool bag. It remains powerful and yet very easy to use. At the same time, it's not dumbed-down enough to deter power users.
Excerpt: Norton’s latest product—the 360 All-In-One—is a complete security solution. The interface has changed a bit from the earlier software by Symantec; it now has a fancy, sleek, Vista-like theme. The colourful controls should suit beginning computer users. It looks like Symantec has covered pretty much everything on the security front. You get an anti-virus and a spyware scanner to hunt down viruses, worms, and spyware.
Excerpt: Forgive me Father for I have sinned. It’s been too long since my last confession… over a year in fact, but there’s something that I just have to get off my chest. Last summer, I committed a truly heinous act: I reviewed a security product from Norton and I enjoyed it. “Nonsense!” you cry, but I simply speak the truth.
Excerpt: Back in the day, when I previously used the Norton Anti-Virus suite for my home computer, it gave me the hump. There were a few reasons I got narked with it, the main one being that the hit on system performance was pretty high for an AV suite, and for a chap who liked to play the odd online FPS, it was a bit of a pain. Secondly, once you installed it, it was installed.
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security, clearly gunning for Norton 360
17 July 2009
Excerpt: ZoneAlarm Extreme Security is Check Point's most extensive suite yet. It incorporates all the features of the ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite with improved browser protection, PC tune-up tools and online backup. Although these latter components must be downloaded separately, it's clearly gunning for Norton 360 .
