Norton 360 Version 6.0 scores most for protection and performance
Norton has introduced two new security suites – Norton 360 Everywhere which protects multiple devices in one solution; and an update to the well-known Norton 360.
Norton 360 Everywhere, available this spring, provides security across PCs, Macs, Android-based phones and tablets. The updated Norton 360 (version 6.0) is available now.
With most families today owning a range of PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets, Norton maintains that all these devices need security of their own to protect users against a variety of threats, including data loss, theft and online threats. Norton 360 Everywhere, the company says, delivers a multiplatform solution where consumers can customise their security to meet their own specific needs.
“With the introduction of Norton 360 Everywhere, we’ve expanded the powerful protection consumers know and trust to their digital devices,” said Janice Chaffin, group president, consumer business unit, Symantec. “We are enabling consumers to protect their valuable data and personal information no matter what device they are using.”
The updated Norton 360 version 6.0 recently scored first in third party tests for overall real-world protection and remediation from the AV-TEST Institute and received top performance scores from PassMark Software.
The main features of Norton 360 version 6.0 are:
- Norton identity safe – Secures, remembers, and automatically enters user names and passwords while protecting users from online threats.
- Norton management – Delivers advanced cloud-based functionality to manage select Norton products remotely for greater ease and control.
- Bandwidth management – Limits non-critical Norton updates when connected to metered networks to avoid using up monthly data allotments or causing overage fees.
- Improved backup – Faster and easier back up capabilities and tracking.
Norton 360 version 6.0 can be installed on up to three PCs and details are available at www.norton.com. All Norton 360 users with a valid product subscription are eligible to download and use the latest product versions and updates, released during their subscription period.

As mentioned above, Norton 360 Everywhere will be available in select markets in spring 2012.
