Norton 360 Deluxe Becomes First Paid Comprehensive Cyber Safety Product to Launch in Microsoft Store

Monday June 17, 2019. 03:03 PM , from Digital Pro Sound
Nearly 25-year partnership furthers ongoing solutions to help keep
consumer devices secure

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Norton LifeLock, Symantec’s (NASDAQ: SYMC) consumer cyber safety
brand, today announced that Norton 360 Deluxe is now available for
download in the Microsoft Store. Norton 360 Deluxe provides consumers
with important cyber safety features and helps protect their personal
information and data1. Available for both Windows 10 and
Windows 10 in S mode (Windows 10S), Norton 360 Deluxe is the first paid
comprehensive cyber safety product to launch in the Microsoft Store.


As an early adopter and supporter of Microsoft technologies, Norton
LifeLock has partnered with Microsoft for nearly 25 years to create
solutions that have been used to help secure, manage and assure the
availability of millions of desktops, laptops and servers running
Microsoft Windows and other Microsoft applications.


“Over the years, we have developed over 200 applications to-date that
run on the Windows platform,” says Samir Kapuria, executive vice
president and general manager, Consumer Cyber Safety, Symantec. “We look
forward to evolving our solutions with Microsoft and forging the path
for protection and security solutions across their ecosystem.”


“It’s great to have Symantec, a valued security partner, delivering
another protection option for Windows 10 customers via the Microsoft
Store,” said Darin Fish, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft.


Given that Windows 10S only allows apps from the Microsoft Store,
Windows 10S users now have the option to use a trusted, third-party
cyber safety provider to help protect their device from cyber threats
and maintain online privacy. Should Norton 360 Deluxe subscribers want
to protect additional devices, their subscription can be applied to up
to five Windows, Mac, Android or iOS devices.


Offered at a monthly subscription of $9.99, key features in Norton 360
Deluxe include:


Device Security: Real-time protection for up to five devices:
PCs, Macs, smartphones or tablets against ransomware, viruses,
spyware, malware and other online threats
