Need for two (2) Antivirus programs

I have an I-Mac with Win 7 running on it by Parallels Desktop. I have renewed my Norton AV [Windows] for 2013.

Does this Windows 7-based Norton AV protect the WHOLE computer, including the MAC OS X part, or do I need to

also install a separate Norton AV for Mac for complete protection?

Thanx.

Parallels runs the OS in a sandboxed environment and with that logic, you will need NAV for Mac as a separate product to protect your Mac OSX.

A Norton 360 Multi device subscription or Norton one would be ideal in cases where you want security on multiple devices.
