When a security company has a name with worldwide recognition, something like “Norton” for example, a full-on name-change would be crazy. However, Symantec hasn’t hesitated to tweak parts of its antivirus product’s name. The standalone antivirus briefly vanished from the product line, then returned at Norton Antivirus Basic. With this year’s updates, the product now goes by Symantec Norton Antivirus Plus. It merits the “plus” in its name, with bonus features that include online backup, spam filtering, and an intrusion protection system that beats most security suites. It’s an effective antivirus, but its pricing is impractical, as I’ll explain. Most users who want Symantec protection should opt for one of the Norton 360 suite products.
