Technology connects the world today and we are more dependent on it than ever. In today’s cyber age, cyber security is one of the major areas of concern for which there are dedicated and professional teams developing security solutions for protecting computers from cyber attacks. There are numerous anti-virus and Internet security solutions available these days. In this article, I am going to review a complete product which not only provides safety from viruses, but also provides an all round protection, data backup, firewall and PC tune-up features all features bundled very efficiently into one. This product is Norton 360, I will be sharing a detailed review. Also we will giveaway 10 licenses of Norton 360 Version 4 worth Rs. 34000 INR to the readers who participate in this contest.

We have previously reviewed Norton Internet Security 2010 and giveaway. The Norton 360 provides all the features of Norton Internet Security and many more additional features along with it. Lets see a complete review of the features which Norton 360 provides.
First thing I noticed about Norton 360 is that it will update itself when you start the installation. This is really important for a security product the the program should be up to date. It will download the required updates even before installation and then proceed.
After Installation of Norton 360, it will download the latest virus definition and other updates to take care of all kind of viruses spreading around the cyber space.
The main screen as you can see above is very neatly designed for easily managing all the required functions. This screen has been broadly divided into 4 – PC Security, Identity Protection, Backup and PC Tune-up. When you further browse these sections, you get more detailed information and controls of your computer’s security.
The Norton 360 provides an all round protection from Viruses, Spywares, Intrusion attacks, browser attacks etc. with its complete auto-protect and SONAR advanced protection features.
On Settings screen there is a Quick Control section from where you very easily control all the features without going through complex screens and options.
Norton provides some limited free space for your data backup which comes complimentary with Norton 360 license where you can save your important data on the cloud servers in a secure way even if your PC gets bad or crashed.
Identity protection protects you from bad and malware infected websites and helps to avoid any websites which phish your information to steal your financial or personal data. You can also configure identity safe feature which will save your login information in a secure way and will prevent any mistaken logins on malware infected or fake pages.
There is an in-built diagnostic feature which diagnoses your computer in a complete way from software, OS, hardware, resource usage and other perspectives and provides you a complete diagnostic report.
The PC Tune-up feature of Norton 360 will tune your PC on disk optimization, temporary files removal, IE temp files removal, History removal, Registry cleaning, startup clutter removal etc. This is one of the most complete package which one would need to clean up and speed up a Windows computer.
