Ready for Windows 8: Norton Internet Security 2013

Starting October 2012, security suites should be able to function properly under Windows 8. Symantec’s Norton Internet Security 2013 is one suite that not only offers good compatibility, but goes further by fully embracing the workings of Windows 8. For starters, the interface is very fluid and has buttons adequately sized for touch. But, it doesn’t stop with beauty. You’ll find that its security elements are top of the class.

It’s likely for users to confuse Norton Internet Security 2013 with Norton Antivirus 2013 in a glance. They have quite similar codes and their default windows conceal differences. However, most of the differences would present themselves when you click the “Advanced” button.

One of the strengths of this suite is malware removal, where it aced several tests from independent labs. The firewall performs intelligently. Exploit blocking is strong. Its antispam and antiphishing are very accurate. One of its features, the scam insight, warns you of websites that are potentially dangerous. You can easily update behavioral detection, and the suite conveniently links with other Norton products and services.

In several tests, the suite didn’t score high on malware blocking. However, the company explains that in the real world, the suite would have taken into account the URL of the source site. Since the testing involves offline folders, it wasn’t able to block everything. It scored only 84% and the remaining malware for testing was able to launch, but when downloaded, everything was easily detected. Another noticeable shortcoming for this suite is it puts a minor toll on system performance.

To conclude, Norton Internet Security 2013 is a very good contender in this line of products/services. It continues from the consistent winning aspects of its predecessors.
