Versions:

Norton Security 2015 - Norton Security is the standard level of protection. This product replaces Norton Antivirus 2014 and Norton Internet Security 2014. The main difference is that the 2015 solution is a cloud-based solution which means it takes up less memory and the update files are significantly smaller.

Norton Security 2015 with Backup - Norton Security 2015 with Backup provides the exact same quality of product as the standard version. Obviously this version comes with backup features. The backup is currently 25GB of online storage in the cloud.

Versions:

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus 2013 - ZoneAlarm has gone to a free edition as their entry level product. The free version does have a lot of functionality though. It includes standard antivirus scans but also has a firewall, an anti-phishing toolbar, and file scanning on downloads.

ZoneAlarm Internet Security 2013 - Internet Security edition includes the same features of the Free Antivirus but with additional features including parental controls, a live chat support option and an increase in antivirus dictionary update speed (from 24 hours to 1 hour).

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2013 - Extreme Security includes the same features of Internet Security but also comes with a virtual browsing sandbox and a PC Tuneup option.
Strengths:

Norton Security and Norton Security for Business are now hosted mostly in the cloud. This means less work is being done on your desktop which enhances speed and performance.
Norton Security implements on multiple devices without an additional fee. Protect your PC, your tablet, and your smartphone.
Norton utilizes Sonar technology which examines the behavior of an application which helps determine viruses before they are well known and before it is too late.
Strengths:

Most free versions of antivirus do not come with a firewall and anti-phishing technologies. Those are both nice options to have.
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security has a virtual browsing sandbox which is a personal favorite of ours. We like antivirus solutions that provide a browsing experience where you can't mess up your system if you accidentally visit a malicious website. For this reason it's worth the upgrade.
