One of the services Comcast Cable offers their customers is the Norton Security Suite by Symantec. This security suite can be used for Windows or for Mac and helps families protect the computer and themselves from harmful spyware, Trojans, viruses, bots, worms and identity theft.
The President of the Consumer Business Unit for Symantec, Janice Chaffin said, “Cyber threats are very real and this year we expect to see five new threats coming online every minute.” She further added, “By joining forces with Norton, Comcast can now bring world leading protection, performance and family safety offerings to its millions of customers.”
The Norton Security Suite for Windows, or the Norton Internet Security for Mac service for Mac users, offers a Two-Way Firewall Protection feature that safeguards the computer from threats at their point of intrusion with “behavioral security technology”. The Two-Way Firewall Protection feature is instrumental in prohibiting these threats from downloading or installing on the computer before they can do damage. The Norton software also has Identity Theft Protection, a feature that blocks against phishing and key logging programs, storing and protecting website passwords.
The Norton Security Suite and the Norton Internet Security for Mac service also provides concerned parents with Parental Control Tools that can help them monitor their children’s online activities. These Parental Control Tools provide a way to filter undesirable web content and keep an eye on specific search terms that have been used, information on social networks the children are going to and chat sessions. With the Parental Controls Tools, parents can ensure the internet is a safe place for their children to visit.
When Comcast Cable partnered with Symantec to bring subscribers the Norton software, Comcast Cable customers received a phenomenal deal. The Norton Security Suite has a retail value of $160, but Comcast Cable offers it for free. Comcast Cable wanted their subscribers to have a safe online environment to enjoy at a family-friendly price.
The Norton Security Suite and the Norton Internet Security for Mac service protects the user and computer, saving time and money and keeping an expensive home investment in good working condition. This security software by does this by cleaning or repairing the registry, and repairing other problems that slow computers down, allowing the computer to remain in good working condition and allowing users to continue their work while the software does its job in the background.
Symantec also provides professional customer service resources. These resources are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, reachable by phone, through email and by online chat, should the need for technical support ever arise.
