About Norton Security

Norton Security is an on-premise anti-virus and identity protection software designed to help individuals and businesses of all sizes protect desktops, mobile devices, and data from hack attempts, malware, ransomware, and unauthorized access. The platform includes a firewall, which automatically tracks online traffic and data exchange across the internet and blocks suspicious activities to secure personal data and files from malicious attacks.

Norton Security’s password manager allows administrators to create, store, and access complex passwords from an encrypted online vault and facilitates secure internet browsing on shared or public Wi-Fi connections using the built-in virtual private network (VPN). It offers a host of features, such as cloud data backup, stolen wallet protection, credit and dark web monitoring, remote learning management, and more. Parents can also utilize the parental control functionality to monitor online activities and application download history and implement content filtering to ensure a safe browsing environment.

Norton Security includes privacy monitoring, which lets users scan and block data broker websites from accessing personal information like phone number, address, or date of birth. Enterprises can also receive text, email, or in-app notifications about data breaches, illegal identity verifications, potential threats, and other security issues.

Norton for Good Online Security

Reviewed on 2019/05/17

My overall experience has been excellent.

My overall experience has been excellent.

Pros

I like the "set it and forget it" aspect. I'm too busy to deal with security software every day, and this has been a reliable software that I literally can trust to keep me secure without having to check it constantly.

Cons

Sometimes the software can be a little pushy with pop-ups about getting you to participate in other software products they carry.

As stated above, Norton sweeps clean and gets the job done. My information, passwords, and data are protected online and offline.

Pros

I swear by this software, and have been using this for over 10 years. Software automatically sweeps computer and network for Viruses and other malware. The sweeps and scans are thorough and can be used for any date or time.

Cons

Price, however, you get what you pay for. I have used cheaper services and still found viruses on my computer. Norton sweeps clean and gets the job done.

We have had a good experience with the Norton. Initially I had used Norton on stand alone computers and it slowed my computer down considerably. This is no longer an issue. I used a different company a few years back and was very pleased with the transition to Norton.

Pros

It does what it says! We use the Symantec Norton on our server to keep 100+ computers safe from viruses, malware and children mischief. Seriously, it catches many attempted intrusions on our system and sends me alerts when students attempt to violate our terms of service agreement. I never have to worry about the product doing what we pay for.

Cons

In the beginning we had to install on each of the client computers in order for the computer to contact the server for updates etc. This was a big undertaking each time we had a new license or a renewal. Now the program runs from our server and pushes out updates to each client. I really don't have any to do anything.

Norton is overhyped, save your money and roll with smaller companies!

It offers you the bare minimum to keep your PC from further infections of malware, adware, and/or viruses. However, in my experience, I have yet to see it make my PC more optimized and failed to quarantine items that should have been. Don't rely on this product if you have prior issues on your PC that need to be addressed and cleaned out of your system.

Pros

For the basic minimum Norton offers you the firewall and web browsing security on your devices from things such as malware, adware, and viruses. Norton does offer the ability to check your website's security before entering with a green marker for the passing site and a red marker for a dangerous site. Normally Norton automatically doesn't allow you to pass through red marked sites without you selecting the button at the bottom of the screen.

Cons

Despite the fact I spent money on Norton security, I noticed no difference in the optimization of my PC. I kept cleaning my device with the scanner and Norton had not found things that another provider in security software for free had found for me, that was slowing down my PC. I was disappointed at that point.

I work for a client that has me review websites that I must open and view to see if they are the type of website that our company is looking to be partnered with. I also use Malware Bytes which picks up most issues, but there are times that Malware Bytes does not pick up an issue and Norton does. I feel very well protected.

Pros

It really works the way it said it does. It catches websites all the time that are shady or have flat out Trojans and other viruses on them. It also "sanitizes" documents that I download.

Cons

I had a bit of trouble with customer service. Not sure if I did something incorrectly or if it was an issue with Norton.
