According to David Freer senior director of consumer products, APAC, Norton 360 began its development from the ground-up to ensure streamlined integration.
“The key difference is it is all built-in instead of layering a number of technologies on top of each other,” said Freer.
Targeted to home users, it is designed to protect against traditional anti-virus threats, transaction security, backup, recovery and system tune ups.
“It is made to be as automatic as possible, the installation process has been reduced from 10 clicks to four clicks,” he added.
Furthermore, the package includes a subscription to a 24/7 customer support live chat site, and 2GB of online storage on Symantec’s servers.
However, it is not guaranteed that data will be kept after the expiration of a subscription, said David Hall, regional consumer product marketing manager.
Norton 360 will cost $129.95, and is available on XP or higher versions of Windows.
