The 2015 incarnation offers antivirus protection, parental controls and system rescue and ensures that your ID is kept secure. There’s also a two way firewall, and spam and phishing prevention.

Installation is reasonably painless, although it wouldn’t proceed until we’d uninstalled iolo’s System Mechanic – if you value that maintenance software (other utilities we weren’t running might also prove incompatible), you’ll need to look elsewhere for your internet security.

This clash appears to be down to the program’s Sonar 4 behavioral protection. This searches for suspicious behavior by evaluating the processes on your PC and, if it’s unsure of a particular process prevents it from taking place. Unfortunately, other legitimate software that works behind the scenes can be confused with malicious programs, so is best not run alongside the Sonar engine.

Norton Security’s main interface has been overhauled but continues to be straightforward to use. The most popular options – Scan, LiveUpdate and Advanced settings – have been given more prominence and setting screens are mainly devoted to slide switches, which are simple to work with.

There’s a useful performance display that shows CPU and memory usage by Norton and other processes, and a timeline of threat detections and resolutions. This is the kind of feedback that few other internet security product offer.

The Norton window can’t be viewed in a full-screen mode, which means that this information, along with the global malware activity map, is little more than window dressing – the map is too small to identify specific places.

Another irritation is that scans aren’t represented with a progress bar, so it’s hard to tell how long they’re likely take. However, our tests show that it’s fast. A 50GB scan of 175.621 files took 27 minutes 8 seconds, resulting in an average scan rate of 108 files per second. This is the fastest we’ve recorded for any internet security suite but, by default, the program tested 10 times as many files as its rivals, which may be over-exhaustive.

Symantec claims that Norton Security 2015 has a smaller footprint than its predecessors, and this was certainly borne out by our copy tests. With the program running in the background, the 1GB copy took 50 seconds, which is close to their other suites we’ve looked at recently, with a scan running, it took 1 min 15 seconds, which is pretty much in the middle of the times taken by its competitors.

AV-Test evaluated the latest engine and gave it a score of 14.5/18; a very good result. Breaking that down, Norton scored 5.5/6 for protection, missing only 2 percent of all the malware thrown at it in two months.

Verdict

This is probably the best known of all security products and Symantec has stood the test of time by constantly improving its product with useful extras, both in its core engine and in the way it reports what it’s been up to. The latest version is light on resources and does what it sets out to quickly and efficiently.
