Get Free Norton AntiVirus for Mac 12.0.0 Beta.The latest version of Symantec’s flagship AV software for Mac.
Norton is a well-known name in the world of computer security, but its focus has been mainly on the PC market. The ever-increasing popularity of Macs means that the platform is now more of a target for virus writers. For many years Mac users have rested relatively safe in the knowledge that virus protection was not really needed, but this is not necessarily the case now. Norton AntiVirus for Mac 12.0.0 Beta brings the protection afforded to Windows users to OS X, and the newly released Lion in particular.
On paper, the idea to create a uniform look for the Mac and Windows versions of Symantec’s security may not seem like the greatest move, but in reality, where computer users often find that they are working with different platforms on a regular basis, it makes complete sense. The main reason for the release of this beta is the fact that it is compatible with Lion – in fact it cannot be used with older versions of OS X – but there are a number of other changes to look out for as well.
