Norton has introduced its first beta application for the Android and also plans to launch its first beta applications for the iPad and iPhone in the next few weeks.
According to Symantec, the Norton 360 includes Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus 2010. The version 4.0 also discovers new malware and threats, and protects web-based attacks, including new social networking threats.
In addition, the new version includes features such as PC tuneup, which improves performance and saves time. The smart start-up manager feature enables consumers to reduce boot-up time, while data from the Norton Community gives insights into which applications are used, allowing consumers to make informed decisions.
Rowan Trollope, senior vice president for consumer products and marketing at Symantec,said: Consumers today expect to be able to access and share their files, photos and music anytime, from any device, and our mobile applications make that possible.
They’re also interacting more on social networks, which have become a top target for cybercriminals. Norton 360’s reputation-based technology leverages the strength of millions of our community members and is proven effective in fighting the web-based threats that attack social networks.
