It is the most recommended antivirus because it is the most virus detected and eliminated with a very reliable heuristic, great protection guaranteed, great spindle facility, real-time protection against viruses, eliminates everything easily, is easy to install and easy to update the virus base for better protection.

Using a hosted model, we know we are always getting the best core cybersecurity, but for the endpoints, we don't need something as complex as FireEye, and we wanted more than Lookout was able to provide. Lookout was terrific, and it came already installed with many of our phones. But we chose to proactively seek out a cyber solution that mapped to our policies.

I have used or tried a few different anti-viruses over the years. Malwarebytes is really good at scanning and removing harmful items but I don't think its active protection is as good as Norton. Both Eset and Kaspersky were used at places I used to work at earlier. I still feel like my experience with Norton has been the most painless though. It's just simpler to use and works better than the rest.

We liked the pricing of Norton better. Also, it was more reliable in finding suspicious attachments and phishing emails than Avast was. Lastly, it ran better on our machines. The feedback we got from our pilot testing batch was very positive and that is what made us take the final step and switch.

Norton seems to prevent more attacks than McAfee. I receive more notifications from Norton than I did McAfee which tells me it most likely is performing better. McAfee didn't seem to notify me about prevented attacks as much as Norton. You can also run Norton on individual email attachments to see if they are safe prior to opening them.

User-friendly interface (it's not just AV and users who were interacting with the product), performance, resource usage (most of the computers were not very fresh and that factor was very critical), efficiency, it shouldn't be just sitting on a PC - it should protect it, what was perfectly done with that product.

  • Webroot.
Our go to product is Webroot. Unlike Norton Internet Security it is built for MSP's that need multi-tenancy options. Webroot also does not need to be installed on a server (like NIS) and it uses much fewer resources on the endpoints. Norton is licensed annually, Webroot is monthly, so depending if you prefer Opex or Capex this may be a determining factor.

Other security products have their own strengths and weaknesses but Norton Internet Security does very well in terms of performance and working with Android OS devices. While past versions were known to be performance hogs, today's incarnation of the security program is well versed to be a top security solution for small offices. Unlike competing products, its refined user interface can really help lower the learning curve and required management time. The product also has a top notch security lab for the latest updates.

Norton 360 has a better detection rate as well as remediation rate than the others I have used. It also does not affect the computer resources if configured properly. It provides an all in one solution that is easy to configure for the novice user and provides easy to review remediation efforts if anything is found.
