Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Norton Internet Security [DISCOUNT: 35% OFF!]
Keeping a Windows machine clean is one of the most difficult tasks these days, especially if the user spends several hours browsing the Internet every day. There are a lot of security suites out there though, so there are some ways to protect the data.
Norton Internet Security is a suite developed by Symantec and promises to give us the protection we’ve always dreamed about. The whole application has been developed to be extremely user friendly, so you should have no problem using it, regardless if we’re talking about installation or the software per se. Installing it will not necessarily require you to restart you PC.
Everything’s organized within Norton Internet Security, so every tool is in the right place. Thanks to its powerful features, the application can keep you away from most existing threats, including viruses, hacker attacks, spyware, Trojan horses and identity thefts. In case you believe that your computer is already infected, you can easily start a scan to get back on the safe side.
The scanning process actually takes a bit longer than expected no matter the selected scan profile. Norton Internet Security needs some time to look for malware in every sector of your drive. Moreover, it comes down hard on system resources and thus draws back the responsiveness of other running applications.
Norton Internet Security is able to protect you on all fronts, including email, instant messaging, web browsing and all the other online activities. All of these are possible thanks to its particular detection technology - Insight and SONAR (Symantec Online Network for Advanced Response) Protection modules.
These are closely followed by the Smart Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, Identity Safe, Download Intelligence or Safe Surfing modules. Norton's SONAR analyzes the habits of applications upon determining whether they are malicious or not.
At the end of the day, Norton Internet Security doesn't look like beating the competition. Although its revamped interface and modules provide both efficiency and ease-of-use, the overall performance still needs more than just a few tweaks to regain its seat at the top security solutions table.
