Advanced protection

The Advanced window lets you configure the advanced protection features for your Norton product.

The following are the different advanced protection features:

Norton DeepSight Community Download

Lets you configure your Norton product to automatically obtain the updated list of IP addresses of computers that Symantec identifies as attackers.

Norton DeepSight Community Submission

Lets you configure your Norton product to automatically submit any suspicious network activity to Symantec for evaluation.

Symantec saves only the geographic location of the computer that submits the event. It does not save the IP address of the computer.

Vulnerability Protection

Lets you configure your Norton product to scan all of the network traffic that enters and exits your Mac and compare this information against a set of attack signatures.

The attack signatures contain the information that identifies an attacker's attempt to exploit a known operating system or program vulnerability.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
