I'm Mike Romo and I am the product manager for Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac and Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac. I am really excited to get this opportunity to welcome you to our beta program and want to be the first to thank you for your interest in our latest products.
Long time Norton users might have noticed that it has been a long time since we have been able to deliver Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security for Mac at the same time. There are a few reasons for this:
- First, these products are specifically designed for MacOS X 10.7, "Lion". We have re-engineered the...
If you’ve been keeping up with Norton products, you probably already know that Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2012 included new capabilities that gave you the option to store your Identity Safe Vault (passwords, credit card numbers, and other data) in the Norton cloud and share it between all your computers with Norton Internet Security 2012. Up until now, however, your Vault could only be accessed from a computer with Norton Internet Security 2012 installed.
Today we’re launching identitysafe.norton.com, a web portal which allows you to access your Identity Safe Vault from any web browse...
It has always been in the interest of malware authors to hide their malware on an infected machine. They don’t want to make it easy for security vendors to find and remove their files. Rootkits are one of the most sophisticated methods malware authors use to stay undiscovered.
A rootkit is a tool that allows an attacker to hide a threat on a computer. Rootkits almost never work alone. Instead, an attacker will deliver both a malicious program (e.g., spyware) and an accompanying rootkit when they infect a new computer. The job of the rootkit is to hide telltale signs of both itself and...
When Steve Jobs died this week, I found out via my Twitter feed. I was working on my Mac and putting together a presentation discussing our plans to continue innovating on the Apple platforms - I had just dropped in a graphic of Apple's new iPhone 4S.
When I read the news, I gasped. I sat for a second and, almost by reflex, just typed "Steve Jobs is dead," sharing the news with my online community. Within seconds, my Twitter feed was an avalanche of disbelief, and for hours, people from around the world shared their grief, the vast majority of them sharing their words on Apple devices.
One of the great new features we’re adding to the Norton 2012 product line is the ability to manage your installed Norton products from one central website. Have you ever received a call from your remote family member that their Norton product is out of date or their Norton subscription needs a renewal? Before the management feature, you’d have to physically be present to address these issues. Now, once you have installed Norton Management on a device, you can handle these things (and more) from the Management website! The site gives an overview of all your managed machines and you can...
Hi, I’m Joe Keehnast, product manager for Norton Anti-Theft, a new Beta service from Norton. Norton Anti-Theft is a new service that gives you a way to track the devices you have, protect the data they house, and get them back in the event that they are ever lost or stolen. Protecting users from the threat of physical device loss and theft is somewhat of a new area for us and we believe this new service is a great addition to our Norton Everywhere vision of protecting you and your data on any device.
So what can Norton Anti-Theft do for you?
Let’s say you have lost a computer or it has...
We at Norton are very excited to
share the Beta release for Norton Internet Security and Norton Antivirus 2012
products with you. Below are descriptions of the new features and great
enhancements provided with this release.
2012 introduces several new technologies to combat emerging threats.
Fake AV is one of the most visible and wide-spread threats that Internet users face today. Fake AV pretends to be security software and tempts the user to pay for it. Even worse, it can install additional malware on the system and claim the system is clean. New for 2012, we’ve included...
We’re excited to share with you that we have reached another major milestone with Norton DNS. As mentioned in a recent press release update on our Norton Everywhere initiative, we’ve just opened BETA testing of our new Web Content Filtering service within Norton DNS!

Users of this new Norton DNS 1.5 beta with Web Content Filtering (BETA) service will be able to create their ow...
