New versions of Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus are now available for purchase at the Symantec Store - http://www.norton.com

If you are an existing customer with an active subscription to Norton Internet Security or Norton AntiVirus (2006 or newer), you can update to the latest version for FREE. To do this, simply go to http://updatecenter.norton.com and select Update Me Now.

Here are some of the new features in this release:


Windows 8 Support 

We’ve included many under-the-hood enhancements to support and integrate with the upcoming Windows 8 release.

Enhanced features in the Norton Toolbar to enable you to safely navigate the web and share URLs as well protect your identity data.

Significant performance enhancements that will ensure your computer runs faster with Norton products installed than any other security product, including the default Windows Defender product.

Powerful phishing detection using Norton’s vast URL reputation data and advanced data analytics to significantly improve phishing protection effectiveness not just in the most popular sites but also in the newest and less frequently visited sites.

Reputation Firewall

Smart Firewall now uses the power of Norton’s vast amount of reputation data to enable users to make more informed decisions when a firewall alert appears.

Enhanced Metered Network Broadband Mode

Our existing cost aware networking feature now leverages the new cost aware networking capabilities built into Windows 8 to offer our users to create more powerful policies when on metered networks. It also displays the name of the WiFi SSID instead of the WiFi adapter, to set the metered policies. 

Integration of Norton Power Eraser

Instead of taking you to a Web page, the new Norton products now provide a link on the manual scan completion page to directly download and run Norton Power Eraser tool.

Always updated all the time

All patches and product upgrades will be downloaded automatically and will not require a restart.

Remote Management

Now includes a built-in feature that allows you to remotely manage your Norton products through Management portal even without installing the Management agent.
