Norton Internet Security 2012 for 3 PCs Retail
Norton Internet Security 2012
Norton Internet Security 2012, the award-winning PC security program from
Symantec, offers automatic, comprehensive protection against viruses, spyware,
phishing, spam, and hackers. Now offering improved speed and performance, it
remains one of the most popular security programs available. Startup and scan
times have been decreased, and you get an always-on two-way firewall that
monitors traffic both in and out of your computer. Its web site authentication
technology even warns you if you navigate to a known phishing site.
Stop unwanted web traffic
Internet Security 2012's most important feature is the two-way firewall, a
crucial feature not usually found in standalone anti-virus packages. Unlike the
basic firewall that comes with Windows, which filters only inbound connections,
Norton's firewall protects against both inbound and outbound connections. For
protection against constantly emerging new threats, Norton now offers Rapid
Pulse Updates, the download service that provides new features, product updates,
and threat advisories, which are delivered every 5 to 15 minutes.
Protect your PC from viruses
Internet Security 2012 is designed to detect and remove spyware and viruses,
block worms, and locate potentially malicious rootkits, using the included
AntiVirus software. Integrated with the rest of Norton's security technologies,
it can start up with Windows and run in the background, preventing many types of
threats from ever damaging your system. It runs more efficiently than previous
versions, and the new recovery tool can attempt to repair infections on
