Symantec Set To Clean Up Norton Security Line Focusing On Subscription Model
Symantec is pulling its array of security products into a subscription meant to protect all your devices, from desktop and laptop computers to smartphones and tablets. Norton Security launches in September.
Like the Adobe and Microsoft subscriptions, Symantec’s Norton Security subscription is more flexible than boxed software: you can install the software on multiple computers (including Mac and PC) and mobile devices (including Android and iOS). Norton Security provides different features based on the type of device it’s protecting, which makes sense. Your computer will get antivirus, antispam, and password protection features, among others.
The move will reduce the number of products Symantec offers. Norton 360, Norton Antivirus, Norton Internet Security will be absorbed into the Norton Security subscription.
