Norton Does More with Internet Security Solutions for the Family Home

Published October 27th, 2010 - 06:40 GMT

With the number of computer system crashes due
to cyber attacks in the UAE totaling 248,000 in the last months of 2009, the
need for elite standards of consumer endpoint security software is higher than
ever. As a result of findings from the Norton Online Family Report, an
insightful snapshot into the disconnects between parents and children
surrounding online behaviour, Norton from Symantec has developed a diverse
variety of free tools with the launch of Norton Internet Security 2011 and
Norton AntiVirus 2011 that speak to need to protect yourself and your family in
the home at no additional cost.

To alleviate the fears of the six out of ten parents that worry about their
children being exposed to indecent material fear they'll give out too much
personal information and because any infected machine poses a risk to the
broader online community, Norton from Symantec is offering powerful free tools
for consumers to provide all computer users with a deeper level of protection
including the following:

· Norton Safe Web Lite <http://safeweb.norton.com/lite&gt;, a downloadable
toolbar that identifies risky sites before users click on them in search
results.

· Norton Safe Web for Facebook <http://apps.facebook.com/nortonsafeweb/&gt;,
scans current Facebook news feeds to see if they contain links that are unsafe.

· Norton Online Family
<https://onlinefamily.norton.com/familysafety/loginStart.fs&gt; helps keep kids
stay safe online for free while encouraging open communication with their
parents about their online activities. This Web-based service gives parents
peace of mind by keeping them informed about their kids' online activities,
providing the tools to talk with their kids about common-sense Internet safety,
and allowing them to work with their children to manage which types of sites
they can visit.
