Norton 360 version 5.0 announced



The retail division at Workgroup IT has announced availability of Symantec’s Norton 360 version 5.0, an all-in-one security suite. Norton 360 version 5.0 features the same advanced new core security technologies as the Norton 2011 products.

Norton products leverage the anonymous software adoption patterns of over 175 million contributing Symantec users to automatically identify and block new malicious software faster than ever, no matter which browser, instant messenger or file sharing program is being used.

This is according to Ewald Fourie, product manager: Norton at Workgroup IT who says that, additional security features, which help deliver these levels of protection include Download Insight 2.0, which checks every download file for malware before it is allowed to run using the latest-generation reputation system and SONAR 3, which provides true ‚zero-day‚ protection against new and emerging threats designed to evade other security features.

Also in Norton 360 version 5.0 is System Insight 2.0, with new Proactive Performance Alerts that identify programs that overuse system resources and cause PC slowdowns.

‚In addition to providing core security, Norton 360 version 5.0 includes identity protection, automatic backup and PC Tuneup. These features give computer users comprehensive, automated protection for their PC in a simple set-it-and-forget-it package,‚ says Fourie.

‚Consumers can feel safer shopping and banking online with antiphishing technology, Identity Safe protection, and Norton Safe Web site ratings.‚

‚Norton 360 version 5.0 also offers the ability to backup important files or photos online and restore or access them from anywhere on the Web. PC Tuneup technology is designed to improve computer performance so users can spend more time doing what they want, and less time waiting for their computer to boot up or for applications to load.‚
