Norton Internet Security 2013 by Symantec is the latest Internet security software from Norton, and features many of the previous version's security programs, including their patented 5-layer defense protection, Sonar Behavioral and Live 24/7 Threat Monitoring, and improved bandwidth management that adjusts Norton data usage updates when connecting to 3G networks to avoid high data charges.
Exclusive Norton Internet Security modules include Norton Online Family which gives you complete control and oversight of your children's online activity, along with improved antiphishing activity and Download Insight 2.0 which scans downloaded files and alerts you to potential Trojans, worms and viruses. Also exclusive to Norton Internet Security is Norton Management, a cloud-based control system that lets you fix, update, renew and install NIS and brings together other available protection for devices like your Mac, smartphone or tablet.
Features new to this version include the Norton Identity Safe, which remembers, secures and stores user names and passwords, and Norton Safe Web for Facebook which scans your Facebook News Feed for dangerous links and infected downloads. There's even a threat-removal layer that targets and eliminates threats that other programs miss.
Norton follows up on their protection with 24/7 technical support through chat, online or phone. The program scans and updates only when you're not using the computer, without user prompting and without a slowdown in your computers process. It doesn't even need rebooting after an update. It also stops cybercriminals from using vulnerabilities in other applications that let them sneak in through the back door of programs and enter your PCs infrastructure.
This version allows a single user to install the software on up to 3 PCs.
