Core vs NAV

As we all know, Norton is the the fastest kid on the block, just the toughest! 

So, I'm asking, do I NEED NAV if I'm already protected by the Core?

I'm using Win 10.

Pros & Cons would be appreciated!

Re: Core vs NAV

Hello

If you are using the Core, you should be using the free Norton Security Plus security program and not NAV. If you are using Norton Security Plus security program, then you getting the APP updates as well as Firmware updates for the Router.

If you have days in your NAV, then contact customer support and they might be added on to your new Security program.     www.norton.com/contactcs   

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Core vs NAV

I'm sorry, I used the term NAV as general name. I AM on the Security Plus, paying monthly.

The point is, do I NEED to be running antivirus app on my pc, since the Core is doing it anyway!

It seems to me as a duplicate effort, wasting voluble resources. Unless, the Core is not doing it all, maybe JUST a firewall, but the win 10 firewall is pretty good now days, much better then ever!

Thanks floplot!

Sorry for the misspelling, one I DO know about anyways, "... wasting valuable resources..."

Yes!! Core requires an active subscription to have all the internal functions enabled, Core and the subscription are tied together. In the event a subscription lapses here is the info that you'd need to either renew or not. Most of the benefits of Core will be discontinued yet the Core will function as any other good router would otherwise.

Re: Core vs NAV

Thanks bud! What I was trying to figure is, in my bad English, if I don’t run ANY NAV (using general term) on my PC, only win 10 firewall and JUST be connected to the Core, will I be safe? Per your last post, most likely not! Thanks again!

Re: Core vs NAV

You're most welcome. You SHOULD install a good antivirus suite IF you do not renew the Core subscription to remain protected. Core will NOT keep you protected without its subscription. Router and Windows firewalls will offer some protections on their own, IF the manufacturer is keeping customers updated with new firmware. Most Internet Providers who have their own ISP specific devices have embedded into them automatic checking for firmware updates. That being said, you'd totally be at the whelm of your ISP relying on trusting them that they are indeed patching vulnerabilities. I would run good AV to make sure I have the highest level of protection available.

Re: Core vs NAV

Oh, I wasn’t planning on discontinuing the Delux! I was just not running it on the PC, only on the Core. But I’m getting the idea that’s not enough protection. Well, right now my score is 500!

Re: Core vs NAV

Yes, you should always run AV on your PCs, regardless of your network security.  First, not all threats arrive via the internet.  Second, Core cannot scan encrypted traffic from HTTPS websites, and many, many websites are now in that category.  No single defense is foolproof - always think in terms of having several layers of security, each providing a different kind of protection than the other layers.  Antivirus is actually your last line of defense, designed to catch anything that manages to sneak through.

Re: Core vs NAV

Thank you all for your input! I’ve NEVER ran w/o NAV, in fact I’ve been using exclusively Norton since it’s creation! 
It’s the only antivirus I will install on machines I work on, it’s the only one I recommend! It’s the one I installed on the enterprise, back when I was a systems analyst! 
But, thanks to SendOfJive, I must be getting old, I never stopped to think, it cannot scan HTTPS, how stupid of me!
Brain is getting mush!
Here’s a quick story if anyone has time to read! About, I’d say 15-20 years ago, my son stopped NAV because he couldn’t get to his “nice” site! That day the drive got trashed, I couldn’t even do a low lever format! I had to trash it! He never done that again!
