The Antivirus That Actually Works!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have been using Norton AntiVirus for a long time now. So, I think I am now in a position to comment about the overall user experience. An unpopular opinion, most of the antivirus in the market are gimmicks. Some are actually useful and Norton is the best of them. The overall user experience is superb. Although nowadays Windows comes with a built-in powerful security system, I can't really depend on that for my office computers. This is when Norton came as a lifesaver. It helps me monitor all my office computers and keep them secure. Also, the developer team is very helpful in terms of after-sales support. This is not only a standalone or offline antivirus system, rather it is a complete package consisting of a firewall, VPN, parental controls, and many more.

Pros:

When it comes to antivirus, you can't say for sure that this will give me a hundred percent protection. But in terms of Norton AntiVirus, I can confidently say that it will surely protect you against all the common threats and privacy issues. Norton is an old player in the market with a lot of experience in this industry. Also, they are quite careful about the users' data security and privacy. The installation and administration are hassle-free too. I can easily monitor all my office computers for any threats. The dashboard is designed beautifully keeping the new users in mind. I haven't seen any other antivirus program loaded with this many features. I love the VPN feature most because it lets me browse the internet without revealing my IP address which is necessary for privacy. At first, I used the trial version and after a week I immediately subscribed for the paid plan. I must say it's worth it and I will recommend this to anyone.

Cons:

I hate nothing about Norton AntiVirus. But there are a few things that should be improved. For example, the real-time scanning feature should be optimized a bit more. Also, there should be some option for the power users to automate and schedule regular tasks. If the developers can improve this two sides, Norton will be unbeatable.

Alternatives Considered:

Norton AntiVirus, good threat prevention app

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Norton was a very good, the top antivirus, however in recent 5-7 years we found others outperforming it catching threats.

Pros:

Norton Antivirus still has good threat prevention capabilities, when it recognized threats it notified us immediately, it has good reporting tool to analyze past threats and help deciding where to change or install additional threat prevention programs to help avoiding future threats.

Cons:

Norton used to be the best antivirus for decades after it came out, however our research even after talking to other businesses we all agreed that today there are just better apps that outperform it. Norton seem to lack in keeping up with the very latest threats or implementing them in their latest versions. We eventually dropped Norton after others outperformed it for two years continuously. Before purchasing Norton I recommend to do research on the internet.

Norton's malware protection is very good, and its system impact is much smaller than in the past.

3.0 6 years ago

Comments: Norton Security offers excellent protection from malware, with at most a moderate impact on system performance. If you're looking purely to shield your system from attack, you couldn't do better.

Pros:

Offers some of the best malware protection around. Password manager, backup software. Not t too much impact on system performance during scans. Each package overlap features, with tune ups to get more protection, ajusted to your needs (from basic to premium). Norton can be set to go into 'silent mode', which reduces signature updates and user notifications whenever another program uses the full screen, graphics, as a game or movie would; it does something similar when you power up a PC after a long period of inactivity, postponing all but the most vital updates and letting you catch up on email and social obligations without slowdowns or interruptions. Regardless of which Norton antivirus product you get, you'll have protection against spyware, phishing emails and ransomware. Norton recently added the ability to stop nefarious changes to the system's Registry file, as well as an enhanced exploit blocker to stop potentially unwanted apps from being installed. The firewall available is easy to adjust and set rules for. You can use Norton Family to block web usage based on time, review what kids have been watching online, filter out offensive material and lock all covered devices for a media-free dinnertime or family meeting. Quick-glance items show whether everything is up-to-date, when the last scan occurred and a link for a quick scan.

Cons:

Few extra features in comparisson with older versions. Still a little slow performance during scans system scans. Lacks the extras we've come to appreciate in other antivirus suites, such as file encryption, file shredding or a secure web browser. It doesn't have a free antivirus product, Norton has four levels of paid malware protection. Parental controls feature is reserved for its pricest tier. None of the Norton products offer the wide range of extra features and tools that have become common in antivirus software.
