Here are the four components of Norton 360

1. Internet security. Basically, this is the antivirus feature of the software which protects you from all the latest viruses, malware, trojans etc. It also has a robust firewall and all the great information and security a user needs to protect a computer

2. Transaction Security. This is another feature people need to be aware of cause it’s going to protect the user from phishing attacks that we often see out there, where you think that your bank is sending you an email and you click on it and it turns out that it wasn’t the bank that sent you that email. Norton 360 Transaction Security makes sure that the sites that you think you are on are not known fraudulent sites and it encrypts your personal private information as it goes across – perhaps your shopping, your online banking, whatever other transaction you might do – and it makes sure that it is not going anywhere it shouldn’t.

3. Backup: You can configure and say which files or folders to upload at your online space. If your computer crashes, if you accidentally delete some files or if your laptop gets stolen, you can download all the files you had uploaded. Of course, the syncing feature changes your files on the cloud up to your last save. Now, should you need more space from the 2GBs you can update your software to the Premier version. After the first backup the software sees only the new information so it’s not going to slow down your PC at all. There’s even a feature in there you may want your backup to happen in 1 in the morning when your PC is not being used, but you may want to get up that time and use your computer; as soon as you start using it while it’s in the middle of the backup, the process pauses in order not to steal the resources and slow down its performance.

4. Computer Tuneup. This feature scans your PC for errors and cleans the registry to optimize its performance. The program makes sure that your PC is healthy, that it doesn’t have a lot of garbage and useless files in and it’s going to clean it up.

In essence, Norton 360 is encompassing all the things that you need to be secure online, to work on a fast PC, to have all your important files backed up and synced.

It’s a great piece of software because it’s a “set it and forget it” product. It’s designed for those people that are really busy, they navigate and interact online and even buying things from the internet but they are not security experts. Norton 360 is really simple to install and it’s going to do all the work for you.
