It is very significant to protect our PC from online threats that are growing rapidly in today’s social media community. Security is important when we surf, shop and bank online and most notably social networking. We spend most of our time online every day and very few would take proper measures to secure their computer with antivirus or internet security program from cybercriminals.

Norton Antivirus and Internet Security 2014

Norton Antivirus (NAV) 2014 and Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2014 are the two primary security products released this year by ‘Symantec Corporation’ that prevents malware and other online viruses using heuristics approach. These products are distributed as OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) softwares which are Windows 8 OS compatible.

The new technology of Norton Antivirus and Internet Security 2014 blocks malicious URLs, exploiting websites and phishing websites effectively. The ‘Remote Monitoring’ via network map is efficient and works properly. The main intention of Norton Antivirus 2014 is to safeguard our PC by blocking malware in real-time. This product is successful in eliminating hard-to-remove online threats which are infected on our PC. Let’s look at the two products in detail.
