What is Norton Security Premium?

The more connected you are and the more your personal information is out there, the more security you need. Do you watch videos or shop on your tablet? Use your smartphone to pay bills or check your balances? Your personal information is in multiple places. Keep it private across all of them. Norton Security Premium provides one easy solution to protect your computers, smartphones and tablets, even on multiple operating systems: Windows, Mac, Android and iOS — and Windows 10. Plus, only Norton shows you if that Android app you’re about to download will impact your battery life, has potential privacy risks or contains malware, before you even install it from Google Play.

Norton Security Premium was previously known as Norton Internet Security.

    Protects against malware, viruses, and ransomware and is easy to handle
    Pros and Cons
    • "Flexible antivirus and antimalware software. It also provides protection against ransomware. It's flexible, easy to handle, scalable, and stable."
    • "Having a dashboard that shows the different functions of Norton Security Premium can convince end users that the software is more than just an antivirus solution. This product offers several features, but end users think that it's just one out of the box solution, because the different functions are not explained in detail."

    What is our primary use case?

    I'm using Norton Security Premium because I want security and protection for my PCs.

    What is most valuable?

    What I found most valuable in Norton Security Premium is that it provides protection against malware, viruses, and ransomware. It's a flexible product. It's easy to handle.

    What needs improvement?

    They say Norton Security Premium is an all-in-one solution, but we don't know exactly what's in it, e.g. they didn't make an effort to explain the difference between a virus scan and a ransomware scan. They offer several features, but end users think that Norton Security Premium is just one out-of-the-box solution, when it has several functions that are not explained in detail. This is an area for improvement for the software. Having a dashboard that shows the different functions of Norton Security Premium can convince end users that the software is more than just an antivirus solution.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    There's no problem with Norton Security Premium in terms of stability.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Norton Security Premium is a flexible and scalable software. I have a license for ten devices, so I can install the software on several PCs and laptops. This is what I'm looking for.

    How was the initial setup?

    The setup for Norton Security Premium was easy. To activate a function, you just have to push a button and you don't need to do anything else.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    I'm paying for the license of Norton Security Premium on a yearly basis. Pricing is competitive, because I'm paying less than 100 Euros per year, for 10 devices. If I were to rate pricing for the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the highest, I'm rating it a four.

    What other advice do I have?

    I have a full suite of Norton solutions to protect my PCs, including Norton Security Premium. The software is deployed on-premises, and I prefer on-premises deployment over cloud deployment, finance-wise. Professionally, we have some experience with other antivirus solutions, e.g. Sophos and Symantec, but I can't compare them with Norton Security Premium. Norton Security Premium is a solution I would recommend because it's easy to use, though end-users should be given more information about the different functions the software has, through a dashboard showing the functionalities. I was working in IT, so I know a bit about the product, but if you compare it with the knowledge standard end users have, I'm not sure if more than 50% of the end-users know what they are doing. The dashboard is very important, and I can't think of other features I'd like added to Norton Security Premium in the next release. I'm convinced that Symantec and Norton are the leaders, they know what they are doing, they cover all functionalities of spam, virus, and malware protection, etc. I'm rating Norton Security Premium eight out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    Secure, stable, and well priced
    Pros and Cons
    • "The internet security was a plus, and it's pretty good."
    • "I don't like the password manager of Norton Security Premium."

    What is most valuable?

    The internet security was a plus, and it's pretty good. The ransomware protection that they have now is worth considering.

    When compared with Microsoft, Norton has a backup.

    What needs improvement?

    I don't like the password manager of Norton Security Premium. I won't use this solution for those purposes. The password manager should be simplified. 

    Their password manager is so hard to use. I really dislike it. You have to come up with a password, and other requirements when you are in the middle of things. It's terrible.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I had been using Norton for a long time and recently started using Norton Security Premium.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I have not had any issues with the stability of Norton Security Premium, so far it is doing what I want. 

    It is preemptive, and it reminds you that there are areas that need to be checked.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I have not contacted technical support.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    I decided not to renew Norton because Microsoft gives you the impression that it is taking the place of Norton. When I used it, I lost an incredibly large folder. It was not necessarily related to malware, but they don't have any backup that I am aware of.

    I have also used Dashlane. They have gotten very clumsy. You are constantly required to enter your password.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    As I have been a long-time customer, I was given a fair price of $49.95 per month for the first four to six months.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    I evaluated the 2021 rating for Norton Security Premium, and it was very high, which is why I decided to start using it again.

    What other advice do I have?

    I started using Microsoft in 1982.

    My only advice to others would be that since it's rated by reputable people as either number one or close to number one of its type, they should consider using it.

    I would rate Norton Security Premium an eight out of ten.

    A stable security solution that is easy to install
    Pros and Cons
    • "Norton Security Premium is good, and it's pretty simple to install."
    • "The only problem with Norton Antivirus is that it consumes a lot of resources like CPU and memory in the background. Whenever it's scanning, my laptop becomes very slow, and the worst part is you cannot do anything about it. As this product is secured by my local IT team, you cannot even kill that process, and that's what I've felt about many other antivirus solutions. I'm using McAfee for personal use, and I have the same problem."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use Norton Security Premium for antivirus. We also use it to block USB devices and some other peripheral devices.

    Norton Security Premium is pretty stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Norton Security Premium is scalable, but I have only had it for my personal use.
    In my previous company, there were more than 10,000 users.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is pretty simple. It took me less than five minutes to implement this solution.

    What about the implementation team?

    I implemented this solution.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    I don't pay for a license.
