免费防病毒软件的真正代价:#30SecTech 视频

你可能会问,既然有大量的免费安全软件可以用,为什么还要花钱买安全软件?

借由各种设备,我们与互联网之间愈来愈紧密相连,因此近期经常看到数据泄露占据报道的独家头条也就不足为怪。媒体报道让我们提高了安全问题意识,加倍防范潜伏在我们屏幕后的安全隐患。尽管我们可能认识到了谨慎小心的重要性,但确保安全的最简单方式还是在设备中安装一个安全解决方案。

保护自身和设备有两个基本选择:一是安装免费的解决方案,二是购买订购式解决方案。

尽管免费软件看起来很诱人,但是它真的是完全免费的吗?想想你设备中的隐私信息、敏感交易以及无可替代的照片和文件吧!当所有这些信息岌岌可危时,你真的放心让一款免费的解决方案去拯救它们吗?选择免费软件前,不妨想想以下几点:

免费软件只能提供最低程度的保护

免费软件通常只能为你的设备提供基本的功能和最少的保护。你可能认为自己受到了全面保护,可以抵御一切威胁,但实际上则不然。免费软件并不能提供全面的数据安全保护,根本无法与可信的安全软件相提并论。

光有防病毒是远远不够的。

尽管防病毒保护至关重要,但它无力保护你免遭当今复杂且手段高明的种种威胁。事实上,防病毒只能抵御大概 50% 的威胁。Norton Security 等类似的全面解决方案可提供全面保护,有效抵御身份盗用、金融诈骗、网页仿冒、恶意软件等等威胁。

免费软件解决方案缺乏技术支持和保证

免费软件解决方案很少提供保证,如果你够幸运,可能会得到一点或稍微的支持。做出决策前,务必理清一旦遇到问题甚至是遭受隐私泄露时,你可以找谁或在哪里寻求支持。别幻想免费软件会有类似诺顿的全天候支持以及“防病毒效率 100%,否则退款”等之类的保证,你只能自求多福了。

免费软件可能包含隐藏的收费项目

并非所有免费软件都一定是危险的,但是天底下没有免费的午餐,对于市面上大多数免费软件解决方案来说也是一样。它们总会要你付出点代价的,可能是烦人的广告,或不断提醒你升级到付费版本,甚至可能存在欺诈软件。灰色软件并不像其他恶意软件一样会对你的数据造成实际损害,它只是以广告软件和间谍软件等恼人的形式存在,掌握你的上网习惯或尝试访问你的更多文件。但是,这不正是你起初想要避免出现的情况么?

免费软件并不保护所有设备

如果设备连接到互联网,就必须采取保护措施。这就表示,你所用的每台设备都应采取保护措施,包括智能手机、平板电脑、笔记本和台式机。每个设备都内含重要而隐私的信息,一旦丢失,可能会对你的个人隐私造成重创。游走在移动设备中的信息很容易被捕获,因而它们逐渐成为犯罪分子的狩猎目标。此外,移动设备也很容易丢失、被盗或放错位置,而你最不愿意面对的就是失去对其中信息的控制。因此,仅仅保护台式机是远远不够的。

免费软件的保护功能并不能适应需求变化

科技日新月异,同时在设备中注入了过去只能梦想的尖端技术。我们很难克制自己想要购买最新创新技术的冲动。无论你购买的是新型智能手机、最新款的平板电脑还是新的笔记本,你都需要一款灵活且能够适应安全需求变化的解决方案。

免费软件通常不能够保护你的多台设备。因此,你只能选择大费周章地下载和注册不同提供商的多个产品来实现逐一保护。相反,Norton Security 这样一款简单易用的产品具有高度便捷性和灵活性,可全面管理你所需的保护功能以及你需要进行保护的位置。

既省心,又安全,何乐不为?

至此,希望你已经了解为何选择值得信赖的安全提供商所提供的解决方案是明智之选的原因。选择 Norton Security,所有设备都能得到全面保护,又可享受全天候技术支持,免除你的后顾之忧。省心省力,物有所值。

Forgo the 24/7 support and 100%-virus-free-or-your-money-back guarantee you get with Norton, and be prepared to fend for yourself.

But...

Norton Virus Protection Promise or Your Money Back

In addition to the 60 day money back guarantee, Symantec offers a 100% virus removal guarantee for Norton Virus Protection Promise, a virus removal service provided by a Symantec service representative for specific product and product bundle purchases. If Symantec is unable to remove the virus, you may request a refund for Your Norton product. In order to receive a refund, the following terms and conditions apply:
  • Virus removal service and its guarantee are limited to computers (PCs, Macs) only;
  • Your refund will be a full refund based on the actual price paid for the Norton product, or if a bundle, the total price of the bundled price paid (including any discounts or refunds received and less any shipping, handling and applicable taxes, except in certain states and countries where shipping, handling and taxes are refundable) and only for the current paid subscription period for that product or product bundle;
  • Proof of purchase is required if you have purchased from a retailer;
  • Refund eligibility requires that you have the purchased Norton product installed and activated on your computer prior to the time it is infected by a virus; and,
  • Money back guarantee DOES NOT apply to, any damages incurred as a result of viruses.

Also;

1.2. Commercially Reasonable Effort.

(i) While Symantec will make every commercially reasonable effort to perform the Services, both

You and Symantec understand and agree that not all viruses can be removed through the Services, and

Symantec does not guarantee that it will remove all viruses from Your computer.

(ii) In the course of providing the Services, Symantec may determine that the issue is beyond the

scope of the Services. Symantec may use commercially reasonable efforts to refer You to the appropriate

alternative resource; however, Symantec will not transfer You directly to an alternate resource. To the

extent permitted by applicable law, Symantec reserves the right to refuse, suspend or terminate any of the

Services in its sole discretion.

http://us.norton.com/nortonlive/pdf/VPP/English/international/VSSG_Terms...

You need to be enrolled in the auto-renewal service to receive this and live in the right country / countries, right?

What does Symantec call a virus anyway?  Does that cover any and all malware?  What about PUP's?

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hi Krusty13,

In countries where Norton Security is available, customers will have the benefits of Norton Virus Protection Promise automatically if they buy Norton Security directly from Norton.com.  Specific to US and UK retailers, customers will receive the benefits of Norton Virus Protection Promise, with their Norton Security product, after they opt-in to auto renew when they activate their product.

We still use the term “virus” for malware, you can find our definition here. It does cover any and all malware, as well as PUP's.

So, I opt-in to auto renewal for 11 months and 29 days.  Receive the benefit of VPP.   On day 30 of the 11th month.  I opt-out.  Or, simply decide not to renew.  The opt-in auto renewal makes no sense.  I'll presume the need to be enrolled in auto-renewal at the time I receive VPP services...then I can just opt-out or remove my payment information.  Why the condition of auto renewal that cannot be enforced. 

How many times per yearly subscription period may a user avail themselves of  VPP services.

That video wasn't there when I posted.  See the edit time of the original post.

Yeah, I've watched it too and that's 30 seconds of my life I'll never get back.

Sorry Dave, I didnt find you had commented on this blog post with a similar question ( and norton employee commented with the corporate languaged rules and regulations a few hours after I started the topic ). Else I wouldn't have started a seperate thread for it.
