Souq.com, the Middle East’s largest online retail and marketplace platform, today unveiled its  partnership with Norton by Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC) to host a new Norton brand e-store on its retail site for customers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The e-store will provide a one-stop shop for customers looking to protect their devices using Norton’s award-winning flagship service, Norton Security.

Norton’s security solutions, including Norton Security Standard, Norton Security Deluxe, and Norton Security Premium, will be available on Souq.com website and via its mobile application. In addition, customers can take advantage of multiple payment options, including secure payment online and cash on delivery.

Tamim Taufiq, Head of Middle East Partnerships, Norton by Symantec said: “Our partnership with Souq.com is the beginning of something exciting for us as a brand. As the largest e-commerce platform in the Middle East, Souq.com is in a prime position to offer existing and new Norton customers with one of the best online shopping experiences for our products and services. As cyber-crime continues to infiltrate into our everyday lives, it’s vital that consumers in the Middle East protect themselves and their devices. The new e-store offers an easy way for everyone to be just a click away to help protect their identity, digital assets, and sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands.” 

Ronaldo Mouchawar, Souq.com CEO & Co-Founder stated: “This region has one of the highest uptake of mobile devices, hence protection against threats and data security is crucial. We are pleased to support Norton to launch its brand e-store on our site. This move will allow consumers in the UAE and KSA to access Norton’s security services at the click of a button, and also receive support from our skilled customer service representatives, who are well-versed with Norton security solutions.”

Cybercrime is highly lucrative for hackers; more than two million UAE citizens experienced cybercrime in the past year and lost AED 4.9 billion in total, according to the 2015 Norton Cyber Security Insight Report[1]. In addition, the report also revealed that UAE consumers lost close to a day-and-a-half (30 hours) dealing with the consequences of online crime, with the average cost of such crimes being AED 2,331 per person.

One of the most effective ways consumers can protect themselves is by securing their personal devices with robust security technologies. By doing so they become better equipped to thwart cyberattacks.

Norton Security delivers multi-layered protection in an easy-to-use subscription service.  Leveraging one of the world’s largest threat-monitoring networks, Norton Security helps defend against the most sophisticated attacks across multiple platforms including Windows PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, iPhones and iPads.

  • Norton Security Standard: Provides real-time, comprehensive defense beyond anti-virus technologies to protect against online threats such as malware, ransomware, spyware, phishing, and drive by downloads for one (1) PC or Mac.
  • Norton Security Deluxe: Delivers protection for up to five (5) devices including PCs, Macs, Android and iOS smartphones and tablets that can easily be managed from a centralized web portal. For mobile protection, Norton scans and identifies problematic Android apps before download, revealing which mobile applications may put the user at risk, and delivers remote lock, wipe and locate capabilities to secure an Android device in the event of theft or loss.
  • Norton Security Premium: Secures up to ten (10) PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets and includes 25 GB of secure cloud storage to backup photos, financial files and other important documents on a Windows PC.  Norton Security Premium also includes Norton Family Premier, a comprehensive set of family safety tools to help protect children as they discover the online world.
