What's new in Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac

Features of Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac

  1. Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac is the all-in-one security product for your Mac. It includes the following products and features:

  2. Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac

    When you surf the Web and download software, Norton AntiVirus continuously and automatically detects, removes, and blocks spyware, viruses, and other security risks. Norton AntiVirus scans and cleans attachments exchanged through email or instant messaging (IM).

    In addition, Norton AntiVirus for Mac has Vulnerability Protection to protect your Mac against application and operating system security holes. LiveUpdate automatically downloads and installs the latest product and security updates for you, so Norton AntiVirus protection is always up to date.

  3. Norton Confidential for Mac

    Norton Confidential for Mac is one of the first solutions to protect against fraudulent Web sites that may be "phishing" to steal your identity when you're logging in, making a purchase, registering for a service, or otherwise sharing confidential information online. Built-in vulnerability protection prevents identity thieves from exploiting newly discovered application and OS vulnerabilities.

    In addition, Norton Confidential for Macintosh protects highly personal information, such as social security and credit card numbers, from being sent online without your permission. It also lets you lock personally important files on your Mac, preventing them from being opened, tampered with or deleted without your permission, whether deliberately by hackers or inadvertently by friends or family.

  4. Norton Firewall

    Norton Firewall protects your Mac from unwanted network connections from other computers wherever you're connected at work, at home, or when you travel. Norton Firewall for Mac is completely redesigned and includes these features:

    Location Awareness automatically detects when you connect your Mac portable to a new network and adjusts your settings according to the security risks associated with the network.

    Connection Blocking uses information about your current network location to protect your Mac against incoming and outgoing network communication to applications, services, and ports on your Mac. You can also customize Connection Blocking settings to block or allow one or more computers accessing your Mac by specifying a single IP address, a range of IP addresses, or all computers on a network. A firewall rule setup assistant is available to help you create custom settings by answering a few questions.

    Application Blocking alerts you when applications on your Mac try to communicate out to the Internet. The alert allows you to allow or block the connection and adds the application to a list so it is automatically allowed or blocked in the future. This feature is particularly useful for monitoring the behavior of new applications you have installed on your Mac that you may not fully trust.

    Vulnerability Protection protects your Mac against application and operating system security holes.

    Norton DeepSight Community blocks attackers that have been reported by Symantec users worldwide. Norton DeepSight automatically contacts Symantec to get an updated list of attackers.
