Antivirus software are important, very important. If you don’t know how important they are by now, you must have been either off-grid or living under a rock for the last few years. The state of cyber security in the world is dire and if you want evidence google wannacry or Georgia 2016 and I think you will get a better picture of what is going on.
The only once who keep virus’ and malware out are anti-virus software and whole there are a good many of them, the security is still breached from time to time, so imagine what would have been the case if there weren’t any.
Norton is an antivirus software developed by Symantec, one of the world’s leaders in cyber security. If you consider only the resources and the scale at which they operate, they are second to none in this field.
Founded way back in 1991, Symantec or Norton, whichever way you want to call it, has been at the forefront of the cyber security battle. They are now one of the world’s best and I will give you 4 reasons why you should go for it too.
If there is one thing you can’t fault Norton for is performance. Although it is not a light weight software by any means, it still has the virus detection rates to prove its resource heavy performance. The virus detection rate is definitely one of the highest I have ever seen in the industry and I have used a lot of Norton’s competitors, so the opinion comes from experience and quite a lot of it.
Usability and Design
Norton may not be the best antivirus software out there, since it is an arguable statement but it is definitely the prettiest one out there. It looks sophisticated and modern and they have done so without affecting the usability that much. The usability factor is one of the most important reasons why I suggest Norton to everybody else and it hasn’t changed in the two decades that have been operating.
Updates and Agility
Norton, as I said, is second to none when it comes to resources and the scale of operation. What this means is that there are more researches working on the updates and products and the result of this is frequent updates that take care of new threats and issues. So, whether it is a new Trojan or a malware, you can be assured that Norton probably has an update lined up in the pipeline.
Cloud Based Security
The final reason I would suggest Norton is the way Norton operates. It is one of the very few antivirus software that works on cloud-based security. This is quite different from the traditional cybersecurity methods which depend on over the air updates to stay in the loop. Norton however, does it differently. It only has a portion of the scanning offline and most of the scans are done from the cloud itself. So, it becomes unnecessary to continuously update the software and let them do the business.
