Norton Antivirus

Norton Antivirus is a cybersecurity software providing protection against viruses, malware, and other online threats. The software uses signature-based detection to scan for known threats, in addition to more advanced heuristics that can identify suspicious behavior. Its features often include real-time threat detection, automatic updates to maintain the latest virus definitions and security technologies like SONAR (Symantec Online Network for Advanced Response). Norton typically integrates with web browsers to warn users of potentially harmful sites while offering email scanning to detect infected attachments or links.
