Marking the one-year anniversary of its cybersecurity product Norton Everywhere, Norton by Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC) has announced new global partnerships and technology updates that will help deliver a safer web experience for consumers across the world.
Norton Everywhere has been a key investment in the future of Symantec’s consumer business, said Janice Chaffin, group president of Symantec’s consumer business unit. The development of a “post-PC-era Symantec” has included introducing new mobile products and expanding the company’s existing products with mobile apps, Chaffin said.
“The market reception has been highly positive, and in the coming year we’ll continue creating partnerships and technologies that will bring the most trusted name in PC security to mobile and Wi-Fi users all over the world,” she added
Norton has teamed up with OneWifi, Hi-Tech Sound, The WiFi Company, KDDI Corporation and T-Mobile Austria, all of which are leveraging Norton mobile solutions to protect their customers wherever they go. The partnerships entails providing Norton DNS to customers using the in-store Wi-Fi for a major food and beverage retail chain in the U.S. Norton DNS protects users who click on unsafe or inappropriate websites and provides a safer Internet experience by using Norton Safe Web technology, which blocks phishing sites and infected websites.
