Norton Internet Security 2012 is the latest from the makers of world’s best security brands Symantec.
Norton products have had a complete makeover this year to make them more user-friendly and powerful inorder to engage any threats.
Norton Internet Security 2012
Is an all-in-one security suite that safe-guards your computer from all kinds of threats on the Internet.
It comes loaded with not just anti-virus, anti-bot and anti-rootkit technologies but also additional technologies like identity protection, browser protection, social network protection, network monitoring and a smart firewall system that keeps every hacker and cyber-criminal out of your computer’s reach.
Every year Norton has continued to get better and the 2012 version provides more improvised safety.
Now you can browse, shop, bank and socialize online without any worries.
It offers advanced protection from online threats with 4 different layers of smart protection that proactively detect and eliminate threats before they reach your computer.
One cool feature that makes it really hot is that NIS 2012 is very light on the system resources. Unlike the other security applications, it doesn’t hog your PC down to impact the performance.
