Symantec upgrades Norton security products
Symantec has unveiled new versions of its Norton security products - beefing up some of the real-time and automated features--and will release them in the next few weeks.
Being updated are Norton AntiVirus, Personal Firewall, and AntiSpam, all of which will be bundled in the upcoming Norton Internet Security 2005. Norton AntiVirus will ship separately in August, with the remaining applications and the suite to follow in mid-September.
Norton AntiVirus 2005 now includes a 30-second QuickScan, which runs during AntiVirus's LiveUpdate automatic software update and checks for active viruses in system memory and other critical areas. More significantly, perhaps, Norton AntiVirus 2005 supplements traditional e-mail virus protection with new Internet Worm Protection to combat threats that automatically scan IP addresses for open ports.
"It's a very targeted solution to stop the Blasters and Code Reds," says Kelly Martin, senior product manager of the Norton AntiVirus product line, of the port-locking technology that Norton AntiVirus adopts from Symantec's major security suite, Norton Personal Firewall.
