Norton Security Scan

If you are looking for Norton Security Scan, you have come to the right place. We explain what Norton Security Scan is and point you to the official download.

What is Norton Security Scan?

Norton Security Scan is a computer security application designed by Symantec as part of their Norton full security suite (which includes the Norton 360 and Norton Anti-Virus software). Symantec however differentiates from the two types as the latter is bigger and must be purchased – there is of course a limited trial edition for either one – but that Norton Security Scan is a free tool. This means it has a perpetual license and free for personal and home use. Aside from this, its main difference from its bigger counterparts is that the Security Scan’s only capability is to scan, and not protect in real-time as the other software products in Symantec’s security line are able to; however, this ability also means that its footprint on the system is far smaller, as it’s essentially just an executable file that runs a scan on a computer – and removes detected viruses at the point of a scan.

While it is free, Symantec guarantees that its capability to scan for and remove viruses, malware and worms is at par with their paid license products especially the Norton Anti-Virus, and it can be augmented through the use of regular updates from the Symantec database.
