Norton 360 All-In-One Security detailed review



Security simplified

Norton’s latest product—the 360 All-In-One—is a complete security solution. The interface has changed a bit from the earlier software by Symantec; it now has a fancy, sleek, Vista-like theme. The colourful controls should suit beginning computer users.

It looks like Symantec has covered pretty much everything on the security front. You get an anti-virus and a spyware scanner to hunt down viruses, worms, and spyware. There’s a firewall, and a Transaction Security feature which is meant to safeguard the online transactions you do—shopping and banking, for example. It verifies whether the sites are online scams or authentic.

The Tune-Up feature is very basic; its task is to clear out your Windows and Temporary Internet Files and defragment your disk(s). You can set the software to automatically back up important files like the stuff in your My Documents folder and others. Schedules can be set for this.

You get 2 GB of online space that can be used to back up important data: once you’ve activated Norton 360, you register for the online space.

If Norton 360 finds anything that could hamper security, it highlights this by displaying it in the main window. For example, if the firewall is disabled, or if the software isn’t up to date, it gives out alerts. The software even reminded us that our Windows password wasn’t strong enough!

360 All-In-One performed quite a lot better in terms of resources consumed than what we expected having seen previous Symantec products—like Norton AntiVirus. When idle, RAM consumption was a mere 8 MB. With the interface on, it went up to 17 MB, and it was 75 MB while running the barrage of scans.

All in all, Norton 360 All-In-One Security as a complete security solution does make some sense. The software’s focus is ease of use, so it cannot be compared to full-fledged anti-virus software or spyware detectors. Everything is automated, so it’s great for those who don’t want to be bothered with checking for viruses and backing up data frequently.
