Comcast Cable has high standards for the services they provide their customers with. A part of this service is their online security suite through Norton, by Symantec. This award-winning software, given to Comcast Cable subscribers for free, helps protect family members and the computer from malicious spyware, worms, Trojans, popups, viruses, bots and identity theft. Comcast Cable partnered with Symantec to deliver an extra level of security, allowing subscribers to enjoy safer, faster online experience with software that can also help protect a valuable, expensive family investment- the family computer.
“Cyber threats are very real and this year we expect to see five new threats coming online every minute,” reported Janice Chaffin, the Consumer Business Unit President at Symantec.
Chaffin added, “By joining forces with Norton, Comcast can now bring world leading protection, performance and family safety offerings to its millions of customers.”
Norton offers protective features like the Identity Theft Protection, software that helps to safeguard against key logging, phishing and other spyware. The Identity Theft Protection software can also store and protect passwords. The Norton Security Suite also has a Two-Way Firewall Protection feature that protects against security breaches at their point of entry on the computer. This “behavioral security technology” actually stops threats before they can download or install on the family computer.
This software is designed to run “behind the scenes”, so that it works quickly while still allowing other functions to work while it is running. The Norton Security Suite is even helpful in the repair and cleaning of the Windows registry, further helping the computer to function efficiently.
Norton even provides professional customer service representatives standing by through email, by phone or by online chat. These services are available to customers 24/7, offering complete technical support, should the need arise.
Comcast Cable can also provide these services for MAC users, with the Norton Internet Security for MAC service, offering complete protection for their subscribers, no matter what the operating platform might be. No matter if the subscriber has Windows or MAC, Comcast Cable can provide a faster, safer online environment for the user to utilize and enjoy for daily applications in work or play.
Comcast Cable offers these services at no additional charge. The Norton Security Suite, a retail value of $160.00, offers protection from malicious assaults against the computer and family, while giving the family a good value for their monthly rate. With Comcast Cable, the family gains a reliable service, with professional products that allow them to enjoy their online experience in safety.
