Norton received two prestigious awards from the AV-Test group
The AV-Test group, renowned as the security industry standard for unbiased third-party protection and performance tests, awarded Norton with the Best Protection award for Norton Security and the Innovation award for Norton Mobile Security.
Powered by 24x7 threat monitoring and a global security network, Norton AntiVirus Basic is designed to detect and destroy even brand-new online threats. And when it comes to online safety, you don’t want to be using last-to-know security. Bonus: You won’t be bombarded with the annoying ads you see in free software.
With Norton AntiVirus Basic, you can fill your PC with years of photos, music, files and financial documents without worry. Automatic, behind-the-scenes updates ensure you’ll always have the latest protection for your PC—and all of your valuable files.
Antivirus is in our DNA. Norton created the original antivirus software in 1989, and more than 25 years later we still set the bar for speed and performance in security software. Only Norton has won PC Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award 37 times—more than any other security company.
If you want to add Norton protection to your smartphone, two-way firewall protection for your data, or parental control software to teach your kids safe habits online, you can seamlessly upgrade to our best protection anytime. No need to start a new subscription. You’ll only pay the prorated price for your new service.
