Welcome back folks, I am back after a long time. Today I have a new product by Symantec called Norton 360 (v6). Remember, last time I did a review on Norton Internet Security putting up 5 important reasons why one should go for it.
As we all know, every company comes with a range of products. Norton’s portfolio for PC consists of three things, Norton AntiVirus (which is Free), Norton Internet Security (we discussed last time) and Norton 360. Norton 360 sits on top of Norton Internet Security with two extra features:
1. Automatic secured backups.. you can backup online or to an external storage.
2. PC Tuning to keep everything running at its best.
The 2nd feature is what i loved. Norton Internet Security though gave the ultimate protection against viruses,spams, spyware etc, It was hogging more memory. With Norton 360, you need not much worry about your system going down.. Norton is kind of top class.. there are special features to tune your PC , cleaning up registry, clearing unused temporary files and more control over processes and applications (startup and background)…

Of course Online Backup is an added benefit where it provides 2 GB of storage online free (*secured*).. if you wish to extend your online storage you can go for Norton 360™ Version 6.0 Premier Edition.

Here is the Product Press Release:
Norton by Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced two premium security suites: Norton 360 Everywhere, which protects multiple platforms in one solution, and an update to the award-winning Norton 360. Norton 360 Everywhere, available in around mid-2012, will provide security across PCs, Macs, Android-based phones and tablets. Norton 360 version 6.0 is available now and has just earned top rankings for both protection and performance.
Many families today have some combination of PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets – all of which need security of their own to protect against online threats, data loss, and device loss and theft.

Norton 360 Everywhere will deliver a multiplatform solution where consumers can customize their security to meet their specific needs.
