Why We Recommend Norton Security 2015? - Read Below!

 

Norton SecurityPros: Excellent interface; Range of different types of scans; Secure password storage tool

Cons: No secure browser or rescue disk in the program; Parental controls not included

Verdict: Norton offers a strong, usable range of features in its latest product, making it an excellent PC antivirus option.

Norton Internet Security is one of the most feature-packed security suites we've tested and it’s also one of the best at protecting your PC from danger. In fact, Norton achieved the highest defense score of all the products we've tested this year, batting off 99 out of 100 threats. The one threat that did slip through the net was able to compromise our test system, which is a minor negative mark on an otherwise excellent performance, and it achieved the highest protection rating of all the suites on test, racking up 292 points out of a possible 300.

For years Norton has been synonymous with security, and aside from a slight name change, Norton Security continues its fine tradition of offering comprehensive protection for PCs worldwide. And it now covers Macs, iOS and Android devices, too - up to five in total.

There’s everything you’d expect in such a security suite: strong antivirus protection that monitors files and programs not just for known threats but for suspicious behavior too, helping block malware before it can gain a foothold on your system.

Antivirus Lab Tests

Norton scored well with the independent labs. ICSA Labs and West Coast Labs don't test Symantec's consumer product line, but both certify Symantec's enterprise antivirus for malware detection and removal.

In the latest report from AV-Test Institute, Symantec earned a perfect score (along with Bitdefender, Kaspersky, and McAfee). This lab also releases a yearly report on how well antivirus products clean up malware samples that they're known to detect. Norton detected and neutralized all the samples, but lost a few points for leaving non-executable traces behind.

Streamlined Interface

Norton has redesigned and streamlined its interface, providing a far less confusing user experience than in the past. The bright white and green color scheme is easy on the eyes, and large buttons and navigation ensure optimum usability.  The bottom of the interface is taken up by four large buttons: Security, Identity, Performance and More Norton. Clicking on each of these buttons takes you to different sections of content within the program. You can minimize the navigation by clicking a large green arrow at the right-hand side of the interface. Doing so will give you the ability to view all of the content in a given section.

Anti-phishing Champion

Norton is the touchstone I use for measuring how well other products can detect and block fraudulent (phishing) websites. I scrape newly reported phishing URLs from various websites—URLs so new they haven't been verified as frauds. I simultaneously attempt to visit each URL on five systems protected by Norton, the product under testing, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. I repeat the process over a few days, always using the freshest phish, until I have about 100 samples.

Almost every product I've tested comes up short when compared against Norton. Among the few to actually score better are Bitdefender, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete.

Speedy Spam Filter

Norton filters out spam from your POP3 email accounts, and integrates with Microsoft Outlook. If you're using a different email client, you simply define a message rule to divert spam into its own folder.

To test a product's antispam component, I download thousands of messages from a real-world spam-infested email account, discarding any over 30 days old. I also measure how long it takes to download 1,000 messages, and compare that against a baseline measurement with no spam filter. Occasionally I'll run across a product that seriously slows the downloading of email. Norton swings the other way; its download time was actually faster than the baseline.

With all the messages processed, I manually identified each message as valid personal mail, valid bulk mail, or undeniable spam, discarding any that didn't clearly fit one of those categories. After doing the same for the spam folder, I ran the numbers.

Intelligent Firewall

Norton's firewall is the poster child for smart and silent firewall protection. To start, it correctly stealthed all the system's ports, and it resisted all the Web-based attacks I threw at it. That's important, but it's just a baseline; the built-in Windows Firewall can do the same.

I attacked my test system using about 30 exploits generated by the CORE Impact penetration tool. Norton detected and blocked every single exploit, identifying a quarter of them by the precise CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) number of the attack. No other firewall I've tested comes close.

Conclusion

Norton offers PC users top-notch protection with plenty of features that will help keep your computer safe while you use the Internet, as well as a simplified interface design that is easy to navigate. The mobile app isn't the best we've seen, but it will protect your devices, and it is great that it offers protection for iOS devices as well as Android.

Norton Security offers seamless, pain-free protection, but so do rival products that cost less, especially when fewer PCs are involved. Because of its generous licensing arrangements, Norton Security offers the best value to a family, or an individual, with more than three devices to protect across multiple platforms.

Norton Security is a terrific security suite with a wide range of features. With great malware protection and equally good legitimate software recognition, it's our Best Buy for this year!
