Norton 360 Version 6.0 (N360) is
one of the
latest premium version of Symantec’s internet security suite for
home users. N360 is the ultimate protection, performance and
peace of mind against digital dangers. N360 works with Windows XP, Windows Vista and
Windows and provides protection from viruses, rootkits,
bots, spam and more. Read on to find out how well it works
and how well it stacks up against the competition.
Installation and Setup
Download, installation and setup are all exceptionally easy.
Long gone are the days when installing an antivirus product
took an age and required one or more reboots. N360 installs
in under a minute and you do not need to restart your PC
even once. Zero configuration is required- N360 will work
right out of the box and there is no need to alter the
default settings unless you wish to do so.
With a broadband connection, you can have N360 downloaded,
installed, configured and protecting your PC in under 10
minutes. How’s that for speed?
Free Trial Version Limitations
The trial version of N360 has no limitations and is fully
functional for 30 days. But note that you need to provide
credit or debit card information in order to be able to
download the trial version and you card will be billed
unless you cancel the subscription within 30 days. So, be
sure to remember to do that if you decide that N360 is not
the right product for you!
N360 had a modern interface that is both clean and intuitive.
The main screen provides an overview of the current security
status of your PC as well as providing easy access to the
program’s options and features. The interface has been well
designed throughout and, despite the program’s abundance of
features, it’s easy to find exactly what you are looking
As mentioned above, N360 has an abundance of features. As you
would expect from a security suite, N360 offers protection
from viruses, rootkits, bots, spyware and a host of other
internet security threats. The program detects malware using
a combination of signature-based and behavior-based
technologies and its real-time, on-demand and scheduled
scans are all customizable.
In many security suites, spam filtering and parental
controls are the weak – or sometimes missing – link. They
are either not present at all or, if they are present, they
do not work very well. In N360, however, both are excellent.
The spam filter has been radically overhauled and now uses Symantec’s corporate Brightmail
In addition to these features, N360 also offers a secure
password manager, phishing filter and various privacy and
performance optimizing tools.
Al-in-all, N360 is an extremely comprehensive security suite
that bundles a myriad of features and functionality into a
single easy-to-use package.
In the past, Symantec have been criticized for producing
resource-hungry products that make the average PC run at the
speed of molasses. Symantec listened to those criticisms,
redesigned the Norton product line and claim that N360 is now
the lightest and speediest security on the market. And they
may well be right.
N360’s security can be summed up in one word: excellent.
The antivirus engine has long been recognized as one of the
best – if not the best – in the industry. It’s certified by
both ICSA and West Coast Labs and always performs
exceptionally well in independent tests by bodies such as AV
Comparatives (www.av-comparatives.org) and Virus Bulletin (www.virusbtn.com).
As mentioned, the spam filter and parental control are both
excellent as are the phishing filter and password manager.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for your
security and computer maintenance needs, you really cannot
go wrong with Norton 360 Version 6.0. The product is
easy to use, easy on the pocket and has industry-leading
security that will help keep you, your kids, your computer
and the data and personal information that it holds safe
from online threats. Highly recommended.
