    Symantec launched the public beta of its new all-in-one consumer security service. Norton 360 helps protect consumers from Internet threats, online scams and identity theft while safeguarding important documents, photos and music through automated online backup and restore functionality. Norton 360 is part of Symantec’s broader Security 2.0 vision for the next generation of online security.

    Norton 360 provides consumers with the essential protection they need to secure their online activities and important data. The service offers protection from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, adware, hackers and other Internet threats and risks. Consumers can feel confident their confidential information is safe when banking and shopping online through Norton 360’s online identity theft protection. Norton 360 also safeguards irreplaceable files such as photos and music through an automated online backup service.

    Users aren’t bothered with constant alerts because Norton 360 automatically resolves the vast majority of security, backup and PC tune-up issues quietly in the background. Norton 360 also provides consumers with free 24x7 support via embedded e-mail and online chat, which will be active during the beta period.

    Norton 360 is backed by Symantec’s unmatched security knowledge and assets, including the company’s extensive Global Intelligence Network, which consists of the Symantec DeepSight Threat Management System and Symantec Managed Security Services, providing more than 40,000 sensors monitoring network activity in more than 180 countries. Norton 360 also takes advantage of Symantec’s Phish Report Network, an extensive antifraud community where members contribute and receive fraudulent Web site addresses for alerting and filtering, to protect consumers against fraudulent Web sites.

    Users can download the free public beta of Norton 360 from http://www.symantec.com/norton360beta. Beta testers must have Windows XP and an Internet connection, and they must uninstall other security solutions from their systems. The final version of Norton 360 is scheduled to be available for purchase by March 2007 in multiple languages and countries.

    ----------
    My first thought was Norton bought Microsoft and renamed their xbox but then I realized Microsoft is richer.

    What's the difference between this and Norton's current security suite (besides the M$ naming)?

    it's an all in one package with a few added features like online backup. I'd try it out but I can't be assed to uninstall avg.

    surprisingly it does according to IEXBeta though it doesn't say in the system requirements.

    So is the difference just the online backup?

    there's inbuilt chat but apart from those I think there's no difference. guess it might be cheaper than buying separately.

    Norton Internet Security 2006 and Norton Internet Security 2007 are two of the worst culprits for slowing down your PC, they're a bugger to uninstall as well. I think I'll stay well clear of a beta version of anything they're releasing...
