Norton Security with Backup Editor's Review

Symantec is an old time player in PC security and its various security suites with Norton brand name are used all over the world. With time, Norton security apps have been tweaked to consume fewer resources and they come with several bells and whistles along with malware protection. The newest versions released by Norton have undergone interface overhauls and naming changes too. Norton 360 has been rechristened as Norton Security with Backup. The suite comes with nearly every feature you can expect in a top of the line PC security suite.

Installing Norton Security with Backup is as simple as it can be. The procedure gets over fast. You will need a PC with Windows XP or later version to use the suite. There are no customization options in the installation, a departure from the past.

If you have used Norton security suites earlier, the UI will seem drastically different to you. Norton Security with Backup discards the well known black and yellow color scheme of its predecessors. Instead of that, you get a clean attractive UI with a white and green color scheme. The UI offer fast access to the core components.

The first time you launch the app, it runs a quick scan to gather information on current computer security status. It also downloads updates to virus signature database. There are 4 large buttons on the UI- Performance, Identity, Security and additional Norton utilities. On a panel above the buttons you can view information on each component.

You can view current security status, time of previous scan, update etc in security module. In Identity section, you get access to components related with keeping identity and data safe. In the app’s Performance section, you get utilities for disk cleanup, registry cleanup etc.  

As is the case with most security suites, Norton Security with Backup lets you run custom scans along with quick and full scans. To remove stubborn or persistent malware that cannot be removed by regular cleaning method, you get Norton Power Eraser. It uses severe measures to clean system of rootkits or tough malware. There is an option to monitor network activities.

To improve PC speed and performance, you can use Norton Insight which keeps a tab on startup items and active processes. Like some other security suites, the app’s ‘Safe Web for Facebook’ component can scan your Facebook account for posts containing malicious code. You can also get Diagnostic reports and choose to save or print them. Diagnostic report includes aspects like resource utilization, inoperable hardware devices, installed programs and network connectivity issues. Signature updates run silently in the background, requiring no user intervention.

The Identity Safe offered by the app is ideal for storing your private login data and password secure. As far as back up is concerned, you do get some customization options. You can select what files will be backed up and set a schedule for the job too. You can backup literally all types of files using the application. You may store data online or use optical media. For Cloud based Backup, Norton offers you 25 GB storage space, which is quite generous.

There is a two way firewall in the suite and it gives you plenty of settings to tinker with. You can enable silent mode which is ideal when you do not want to see any pop-ups by the app. It can be ideal when you play games or watch movies in full screen mode. The Norton Tamper Protection ensures a malware or exploit cannot turn off core component of the suite. It also uses Norton SONAR technology for comprehensive malware protection and removal. There is a spam filter bundled as well.

The suite comes with plenty of features and components and average users may feel baffled at times. To learn about these, they can refer to the app’s excellent help manual online. The scan results are fairly good but full system scan does take some time. Norton Security with Backup does not make the system slow.

Positive Points:
•    Revamped, sleek UI.
•    Extensive feature list and customization.
•    Decent Backup Options, 25 GB Cloud storage.
•    Norton SONAR technology and Identity Safe.

Negative Points:
•    Scan speed not very fast.

Norton Security with Backup is a feature rich PC security suite which replaces the older Norton 360 app. The revamped UI with clean layout deserves praise. The customization options in the suite are likely to please even the most finicky user. The feature list is long and everything you can think of- including two way firewall, identity protection, anti-spam component- is there. The backup works well and you do get decent customization options. Malware protection is good and the Tamper Protection ensures your PC remains safe from stealthy malware. The suite’s scan speeds are not much impressive but it is not a deal breaker either.  

Rating: 3.5/5
