Beginning September 2014, the Symantec Donation Program at TechSoup will no longer offer Norton AntiVirus. Symantec recommends that organizations using Norton AntiVirus consider a more comprehensive security product like Norton Internet Security for Mac or Norton Internet Security for Windows. These products include all the functionality of Norton AntiVirus in addition to a two-way firewall, protection from Internet and email threats, and other capabilities.
Norton AntiVirus protects Macs from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, botnets, rootkits, and spyware. The program scans existing files and all incoming and outgoing data without interrupting the user.
This donation provides a subscription for use of the product on one computer for one year. The subscription includes protection updates and new product features. The product will cease to function entirely after one year unless the subscription is renewed.
