Norton 360 V6.0 Beta is said to offer powerful core security technology found in Norton Internet Security 2012, in addition to the enhanced PC tuneup and backup capabilities of the software. It also comes with new protection and usability improvements which includes:
- Norton Identity Safe in the Cloud – Protects personal and financial information from cybercriminals and keeps users safe from fraudulent websites
- Norton Management – New web-based functionality lets users manage their Norton products from anywhere in the world
- Download Insight Stability Ratings – Checks every downloaded file for safety before installation and now provides users with additional data about the predicted stability of the application in their environment based on the stability experiences of millions of other Symantec users.
- Bandwidth Management – Limits non-critical Norton updates when connected to metered networks to avoid using up monthly data allotments or causing overage fees.
Symantec claims the Norton 360 version 6.0 Beta outperforms its previous most stable build, the Norton 360 version 5.0, on key performance metrics — including an average improvement of over 50 percent on file copy impact.
I’ve been using Norton 360 V5.0 for months now and I must say it’s undeniably among the best security software for PCs. It’s light, clever, comes with great UI, and doesn’t eat much of your computer’s memory; so I’m quite excited to see how the new version performs on the same system.
