To detect and block complex online threats

By CBR Staff Writer

Symantec has entered into an agreement to distribute Norton Internet Security on Lenovo Think-branded PCs, including ThinkPad laptops, ThinkCentre desktops and ThinkStation workstations, worldwide, in multiple languages.

The company said that its Norton Internet Security will detect and block online threats. In addition, it also provides layers of security, including browser protection, anti-spyware and identity protection.

Reportedly, this security services complement Lenovo’s full suite of hardware and software based security offerings including ThinkVantage Technologies like hardware password manager for managing full hard drive encryption and Lenovo Lost and Found to help in reuniting lost ThinkPad laptops with their owners.

Hal Bennett, vice president of global OEM and ISP sales at Symantec, said: “Lenovo is clearly committed to delivering computers that are exceptionally engineered for performance and security, and in offering their customers our groundbreaking reputation-based security technology, they are taking protection to an unprecedented new level of efficiency and effectiveness.”

Peter Schrady, vice president and general manager of software, peripherals and enterprise products, at Lenovo, said: “Lenovo and Symantec’s similar focus on providing unparalleled security and performance to business customers, especially the growing small to medium business market, makes Norton Internet Security a valuable addition to our portfolio of services included with our Think PCs.”
