SINGAPORE – Norton by Symantec today announced the availability of Norton Tablet Security and new updates for Norton Mobile Security, including a new “Scream” feature that helps users find a lost or stolen phone quickly. Both offerings for the Android platform further support the Norton Everywhere initiative, which extends Norton's security expertise and technologies to protect consumers everywhere they go, regardless of device or platform.

Norton Tablet Security

Available through retail partners, this new offering is designed specifically for Android tablets to protect the device, as well as the user’s privacy and important data, against loss, theft, viruses, and other threats through the following features:

· Web-based Anti-Theft – By logging in through a web browser, users can access anti-theft features that include the ability to remotely lock a lost or stolen device, preventing information from being stolen. Users can also add a default or custom “device lost” message to the lock screen. A lost or stolen tablet can also be located on a map, which shows the device’s most recent locations. For those who want to see who may have their device, the “Sneak Peek” feature remotely takes a photo using the front-facing tablet camera and uploads the picture to the anti-theft site that stores and displays the most recent pictures.

· Anti-Malware – Automatically scans all the apps and app updates downloaded to the mobile device and SD card for threats.

· Web Protection – Norton Safe Web technology alerts on fraudulent and malicious websites, protecting the device from content accessed or downloaded over mobile networks and Wi-Fi connections, without slowdowns or interruptions.

Norton Mobile Security

Also available through retail partners today, this updated mobile offering now includes web-based anti-theft functions and a “Scream” locator feature that lets users send a text to their missing phone to remotely activate an alarm, helping them locate their device. Users who have already purchased a version of Norton Mobile Security will receive these new feature updates through their existing product subscription:

· SMS-Based Antitheft features – In addition to the “Scream” locator feature, users can remotely locate, lock and wipe their device through SMS commands. Users can also create a buddy list, specifying trusted contacts (like friends or family) who can send an unlock code through their phone.

· Web-Based Antitheft features: Users can remotely locate and lock their device through the antitheft.norton.com web portal. A Web-based feature, “Lost Notice,” allows users to display a customizable message to anyone who finds the missing device so the owner can make arrangements to get it back. Norton Mobile Security also includes a “Sneak Peek” feature that remotely takes a photo using the front-facing camera and uploads the picture to the anti-theft site.

· Privacy features – Protects personal information from phishing scams and allows users to avoid unwanted communications. Users can browse safely while Norton Safe Web technology alerts on fraudulent and malicious websites, protecting the device from content accessed or downloaded over mobile networks and Wi-Fi connections, without slowdowns or interruptions.
