Norton Internet Security 2012
10 December 2011
Conclusion: Some suites are good at just one thing, but Norton is a jack of all trades. Powerful antivirus protection, smart firewall, accurate antispam? it all works well.
Pros: Powerful antivirus protection and malware cleanup. Smart firewall protects without hassle. Blocks phishing sites and exploits. Very accurate antispam. New startup manager. Identity Safe now syncs form-filling and password management with the cloud. Integrates with other Norton products.
Cons: SONAR detection may erroneously block very obscure and little-used utilities.
Excerpt: Symantec’s latest Norton-branded product, Internet Security 2012 builds on its impressive predecessor of last year with some new features and enhancements to build an impressive all-round security suite.
Excerpt: It's always nice when a company - especially one that has been the market leader for so long - acknowledges its past mistakes and strives to rectify them. This has never been truer than in the case of Symantec and its Norton Internet Security product.
Summary: Most suites will try to get away with one or two substandard modules, such as weak spam filters. Norton Internet Security 2012, though, does a great job in every area, even with bonus features like performance monitoring - there's nothing here that couldn't be successfully released as a stand-alone product.
Excerpt: Symantec's Norton Internet Security suite generally does extremely well in our tests, and this year is no exception. It was compromised in 4 per cent of our tests (one sample), putting a dent in its otherwise perfect performance. Norton keeps you informed about every program you install, with a little toaster popping up from the notification area to let you know what's going on.
Conclusion: All in all, Norton Internet Security 2012 is a very comprehensive package. Features are logically accessible according to their functions, while there is enough depth to go beyond the surface and customise one’s security settings to one’s own preferences and personal usage patterns. It managed to remain unobtrusive enough while providing valuable information.
Pros: Feature rich, Accessible, Logically laid out, Licenses for three PCs
Cons: Does require some input to take full advantage of some features
Summary: As we approach the final quarter of a year, it means the release of titles bearing next year’s designation will begin to pick up speed. This is especially true of titles that provide protection against the various malware threats that attempt to take control of our computers.
Conclusion: Symantecin valtti pisteytyksessä on tasapainoisuus. Tuote sopii käytännössä kaikille käyttäjille ummikosta tietoturvansa hyvin tuntevaan tehokäyttäjään. Ainoastaan kaikkein edistyneimm&aum ...
