With the holidays coming up, I know a lot of people have technology items and gadgets on their wish list for Santa! Since there may be laptops or netbooks in store for your family, it’s a good time to review your internet security and protection measures to keep your machines, data, and family members safe.
Norton Small Business by Symantec is a suite of internet security products (you may be familiar with the terms “anti-virus” or “virus protection”). While in the old days, these security programs were mostly designed to block viruses, in 2012 they mean a much broader layer of protection over our everyday activities we do on computers.
Do you have someone in your family with a small business? I know I do and a lot of you bloggers can relate. Do you sell Mary Kay? Scentsy? Pampered Chef? Are you a freelancer? Whatever your small business is, you need to have big business level of protection but with a small business price tag that’s just right for you.
Symantec wanted us to pass on that small business owners get a 30% discount when they purchase Norton products designed for 5-10 users!
It’s so important for us to have this full spectrum of internet protection like what is provided with Norton 360 version 5.0. It automatically backs up files in the method you choose to the Norton data centers, so you don’t have to worry about losing your valuable data in case of computer problems. It would be devastating to your time and productivity to not have an offsite backup for your information if something did go wrong!
Norton 360 and Norton Internet Security 2012 are the 2 new Norton products that came out in September 2011. They have the latest protection and tools to fit your everyday technology needs. For those of us who shop online, we used to have to worry about spyware and tracking cookies. Not anymore!
Whether you’re using them for your small business or just your family’s regular computing, the 2 new Norton products offer necessary protection like:
- Keeping confidential business information or financial information safe when you pay bills online or other banking transactions,
- Keeps your internet browsing safe by checking files for safety before download,
- Checks websites for threats before you open them in case of danger by virus or malware,
- Does automatic backups of your files,
- and lets you access your remote files no matter what computer you’re on!
Having children old enough to use the internet, I’m always concerned about their safety as well as them accessing information and sites that are harmful to the computer. My daughter has to do research on the internet for reports and research projects, and you never know if unsafe sites will come up in the search results.
Thankfully, the parental controls and the built-in site and download protection in Norton take care of those issue for my preteen so she can do her homework safely and I can stop worrying!
If you don’t currently have a comprehensive plan for protecting your current computers (and any other tech goodies which might be coming home for Christmas!), go check out the options available in the different Norton products. Plus, remember you can get 30% off Norton Small Business Products now!
