Symantec AntiVirus

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

What is Symantec AntiVirus?

Symantec Antivirus is not one, but different security suites from Symantec; this is basically an umbrella term to refer to any of the four (2 for home users and 2 for corporate and enterprise environments) security software suites that Symantec has released. These four are the Symantec Endpoint Protection (and the Hosted Endpoint Protection) for corporate users, and the Norton Internet Security and the Norton 360 suites for home users. They offer essentially the same amount of protection, only in the scale of the data they protect; corporate Symantec antivirus suites typically offer firewall and antivirus protection right out of the box, and are meant for servers and workstations (in contrast to the Norton line, which is targeted for desktops).

The Symantec Antivirus line share a few defining traits and features among themselves. One of these is the firewall, which takes over the Windows default firewall and protects you from outside (i.e. outside the network) threats. The proactive, real-time scanning uses the patented Symantec Tru Scan technology to assess data that your computer is processing to see if it’s harmful, or is tagged as a malicious code, and alerts you to their presence. And finally, the on-demand Antivirus scanning looks for and eliminates viruses and other malware that might be lurking in your hard disk.
