Symantec launched Norton Internet Security 2008 and Norton AntiVirus 2008, industry leading security solutions that have been enhanced to provide computer users with comprehensive protection against new and emerging online threats, including disguised attacks used by drive-by downloads. In addition, Norton Internet Security 2008 will also feature Norton Identity Safe to protect users’ identities when they buy, bank or browse online.
The company has also optimized each product for greater performance, improved technical support and reduced user interruption. With Norton 2008 products, users have powerful solutions that effectively guard against new threats and extend protection beyond the PC to wireless home networks and online identities.
Both products include the powerful SONAR behavioral detection technology that protects against malicious code before standard virus and spyware detection definitions have been created.
