Norton Security Compared to Old Norton Products


Norton Security vs. Norton 360 vs. Norton Internet Security vs. Norton AntiVirus

Norton Security services are replacing Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, and Norton AntiVirus. How these new products compare to the old ones? Which new product is the best replacement option for you?


As Symantec released its new Norton Security services in September 2014, well known antivirus and Internet security products like Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, and Norton AntiVirus (including both versions for PC and Mac) have entered their “last days” prior becoming fully retired products. From here, the questions arose about which path to take, as three new offers became available:

  • Norton Security Standard,
  • Norton Security Deluxe, and
  • Norton Security Premium.


It was an intention of Symantec to simplify its Norton security product offer portfolio, so you could make your selection in an easier and faster way.


On this page, we serve you with a table that reflects similarities and differences between “old” and “new” products. We also help you in narrowing your course of the transition from i.e. Norton 360 or Norton AntiVirus to any of the three Norton Security products/editions. This is all to help you in selecting the most suitable security solution that can fulfill all of your needs, regardless of what kind of a device you use, and what kind of operating system is running on it. Norton Security Standard, Norton Security Deluxe, and Norton Security Premium support all of the major operating systems like Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Android, and iOS (features vary for each OS).


Now, take a look into the comparison table to get a better picture of how features of Norton Security services stand when compared against the features of legacy Norton products Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, and Norton AntiVirus.
Below the table is a simple guide intended to help users of legacy Norton security software in their transition to the new products.

Which new Norton Security product is right for you?

Norton now offers its best protection across your many devices so you can explore everything the web has to offer – all without fear of having your computers, smartphones, and tablets compromised in any way.
The transition path can be determined by two factors: features needed, and a number of devices that need protection. Or, it can be based on the current Norton software being used. For the users that want to make their decision based on which Norton software they are using now, here is the recommendation:

If you were using:

  • Norton™ AntiVirus
  • Norton™ Internet Security
  • Need to protect 1 device only


If you were using:

  • Norton™ AntiVirus
  • Norton™ Internet Security
  • Need to protect up to 5 devices


If you were using:

  • Any version of Norton 360™
  • Need to backup files on your PC
  • Need to protect up to 10 devices
