Singapore – Today Norton by Symantec released the 2013 public betas of the award-winning Norton Internet Security, Norton AntiVirus and Norton 360. Available for free download from the Norton beta website, these products are designed for compatibility with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, in addition to Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

With the 2013 betas, Norton continues to leverage the power of the cloud to keep consumers safe in all they do online – whether browsing, socializing or shopping. In addition to delivering core protection via the cloud, the betas now include improved cloud-enabled features such as Norton Management, Norton Identity Safe and online backup, which allow consumers to conveniently manage their security and keep their personal information safe, anywhere, anytime.

The 2013 betas are designed to outperform the award-winning previous versions which already lead the industry in both protection and performance. In addition to delivering best-in-class core security technologies and a seamless user experience, the betas include key enhancements including:

  • Metro App Protection – New protection capabilities provide security for consumers using Windows 8 Metro apps.
  • Next Generation Firewall Protection – Norton’s award-winning Insight technology has been incorporated into the Norton firewall to improve the ability to detect and block malicious network activity including botnet activity which attempts to steal consumers’ personal information.
  • Bandwidth Monitoring – Increased intelligence and improved integration with the operating system will help consumers avoid costly data overage fees by limiting non-critical updates on bandwidth sensitive networks.
