Adds Protection for iOS devices and contacts backup
Norton has released the latest version of its flagship mobile offering, Norton Mobile Security. The new Norton Mobile Security delivers enhanced protection for consumers’ mobile needs, including support for iOS devices and contacts backup.
In addition, Norton 360 Multi-Device, a wide-ranging security solution that provides security across platforms and devices is now also available including support for iOS devices. As the name suggests it’s designed for consumers who have multiple devices such as PCs, Macs, Android-based phones and tablets.
Now that mobile phones have become an integral part of consumers’ lives, it’s reported that two-thirds of adults worldwide use a mobile device to access the Internet. However, one in three mobile device users have had a device lost or stolen, putting their sensitive information at risk. Norton said its Mobile Security was developed to help consumers keep their device secure, recover a lost or stolen device and prevent strangers from accessing their information.
“It’s no secret that people are using mobile devices more than ever in their daily lives, for everything from connecting with friends to paying for a cup of coffee,” said Dave Cole, vice president, product management, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corporation. “Your phone may not just be your phone – it may be your wallet, identity card, address book and family photo album. As we use our phones in new ways, we’re also putting sensitive information at risk if the device gets lost or stolen. With the latest version of Norton Mobile Security, we are making it simple for people to stay protected on whichever device they choose.”
Norton Mobile Security offers new and improved features including:
• Multi-Device, Multi-Platform Support – Now protects multiple devices, including Android smartphones and tablets, as well as iPhones and iPads

• Remote Locate – Pinpoints a lost or stolen device on a map so users can find it fast
