Windows remains the main target for hackers and viruses across the Internet and, with a new version to be launched next month, security companies struggle to protect their buyers.
Symantec recently announced that its anti-virus software is now compatible with the upcoming Windows 8 and every single application has been optimized to work with the Windows 8 touch interface. Norton Anti-Virus
, Norton Internet Security
and Norton 360
are all able to protect Windows 8 users, with Symantec claiming that all products will run on low hardware resources. What's more, they feature new social networking and anti-scam protection, while Norton 360 sports a threat-removal layer
The social network security feature protects users from risky links and scams by scanning the Facebook timelines for malicious content.
As always, a one-year license for Norton Anti-Virus costs $49.99, while Norton Internet Security 2013 buyers have to pay $79.99 for a three-user license.
