Norton Antivirus.. Your first line of defense against viruses and malewares.

Norton Antivirus is one of the mostly used and widely known antivirus software. Knowing that our files and computers are protected from malware, ransomware or cyber attacks that could be costly or disruptive to our businesses and/or personal lives gives me a great sense of security and relief.

Pros

Norton Security is a sophisticated antivirus programme for your computer. The tool offers excellent protection against malware, ransomware, identity theft, and web and email attacks. Advanced Firewall and VPN capabilities are useful for keeping your device secure. The Norton updates and threat protection are the best features. The Norton team releases daily updates to improve their software's ability to combat newly discovered threats. Cloud storage and parental control are among the other functions. These advanced features are only available as part of a high-priced package, so we have to choose according to our needs. The pricing plans are reasonable, and the protection is excellent. One of the most reliable brands and names in computer security.

Cons

To work properly and on full potential Nortin Antivirus, like its other counterpart softwares, consumes a lot of hardware resources like CPU and RAM making your computer work a bit slow..

Reasons for Switching to Norton AntiVirus

Wasn't as effective as Norton and also lacked some features.

A surprisingly light weight antivirus solution

Norton ticks all the boxes for AV compliancy, it appears to be lightweight with competitive pricing. And finally, nobody got fired for buying Norton

Pros

Norton works mostly in the background without impacting user activity. We haven't been impacted by malicious software since installing (touch wood!) and the initial and renewal prices have been competitive.

Cons

Having to trouble shoot adding a computer and user to the domain, which required disabling Norton momentarily. No warning or log entry were apparent and it took several hours to solve the issue. Slightly annoying web pop ups can occur infrequently and intermittently but only impact on productivity for the time it takes to close the browser tab.

Reasons for Choosing Norton AntiVirus

Pricing and it seemed to review as well or better than the competition at the time.

Reasons for Switching to Norton AntiVirus

AVG seemed to impact computer performance and renewal pricing increased.

With Norton Antivirus, I feel completely safe

Sometimes the computer becomes very slow while searching for viruses, and often leave the device without opening any other file because it consumes a large proportion of RAM

Pros

The best for years in integrated and comprehensive protection from attacks, spyware and cache, and it is considered a good value for a respectable price compared to the competition

Cons

Relatively slow in dealing with and searching for viruses It consumes more ram The length of the search period may take more time than the competition

First a selling & marketing company, then an Antivirus maker

It's a good product and I do believe it does its job. However, the commercial side of the company pushed me away.

Pros

It works across multiple operating systems as and the experience is quite similar. It does detect virus and it does its job. Support tends to be too automatic, but when you eventually talk to a human, usually in India, they do help and answer all your questions.

Cons

Norton is a selling and marketing company, and this shows so much. This is not bad per se, however every year when I had to renew, prices were 100% or more than the previous years; one year the price increase was over 200%. So, every 12 months I had to cancel my subscription, start with a new order and one year later, repeat the process.

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.

Reasons for Choosing Norton AntiVirus

Once again was offered a better deal and needed to act under a limited time before I missed it.
