Norton Antivirus is perhaps the most well known antivirus on the market. Here are some of the features. The Proactive Exploit Protection feature actively prevents exploit techniques such as heap spray and ROP (Return Oriented Programming). The Threat Emulation feature analyzes malware that has been encrypted, packed, or obfuscated by running it in a controlled environment and evaluating it after it self-decrypts. This is a rare feature that not many other antiviruses have. Norton has a unique guarantee to its customers. If you purchase any Norton Antivirus above the basic package there is a unique guarantee. If Symantec tech support agents cannot rid your system of pesky malware, the company will refund your money.
Kaspersky provides some creative solutions! The Secure Connection feature is worth mentioning. The Secure Connection technology assists in protecting data when you connect to public networks such as internet cafes. Secure Connection makes sure all sent & received data is encrypted & protected from theft or tracking. I do not know of any other antivirus that does this. The Kaspersky Installation Assistant will support you during the installation process of new programs from the internet. It will ensure that you install nothing extra besides the programs you have selected. The Safe Surf technology warns you about potentially malicious websites. URL Advisor uses cloud-based data to determine the reputation of websites. URL Advisor will display a color-coded icon to show you whether a link is trusted, suspicious or dangerous. File Shredder totally destroys unwanted files. See other features at Kaspersky.com.
Business / Endpoint Info:
Norton comes in two flavors for business protection. There is the Small Business option is for less than 20 devices. More than 20+ computers requires the Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud option. The Small Business solution is very flexible. It will protect laptops, tablets and even smartphones. Norton is smart enough to detect the device. It knows the security features different devices need. It is important to note this is a cloud based solution. There is no server or hardware to install. To add a device to the Small Business network a special email is sent to an employee's device. Instructions are included in the email to add the new device to the network.
Business / Endpoint Info:
Kaspersky offers a Small Office solution for less than 45 employees. Anything larger than 45+ employees will require their Endpoint Security solution. Let's talk about the Small Office solution first. This is designed to work out-of-the-box without much IT skills required. This does not mean that the product lacks the punch. Powerful security tools are included to connect any device you choose. Administrate the software from a single admin web page which will display the security status of all your devices. Activate Small Office on any device and have easy access to the Technical Support. Features include anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-ransomware, backup and encryption. Secure email and web activity
against hidden exploits and a malware. Possibly one of the coolest features of Small Office is the anti-cryptor. If you have ever heard of a crypto-locker the anti-cryptor defends against this kind of attack which can lock you out of your own files on the network and demand a ransom to unlock them. Protect Windows PCs, laptops, servers, Mac computers and Android mobile devices.
