Both Norton and AVG have established themselves in recent years as top performers in the field of internet security. As far as reliability, consistency, and overall performance, the race is neck and neck between the two. Like Norton, AVG has, for many years, used a hybridized system network of cloud and database technologies. These overlapping network features combine to block malware, virus, and phishing threats with remarkable consistency.
Where AVG falls slightly behind is in its ability to recognize and swiftly quarantine and delete brand new, so-called zero day, threats. Norton, perhaps due to some slight edge in recruiting brash new software developers with a flair for the dramatic, has managed to grasp the current social climate, and thus to somewhat “corner” the market where it comes to “proactively” perceiving new social network based malware and phishing threats which many comparable systems (including, regrettably, AVG’s) seem powerless (at least, for the foreseeable future) to avoid overlooking.
Norton also gains kudos for its firmly established base of customer loyalty. Its 60 day, “all or nothing”, free trial program allows potential new customers to sample a nearly complete version of its basic antivirus program, and really gives them a solid, finely detailed look at exactly what its full, paid program can do for them. Likewise, once you purchase its full version, you can take advantage of a fully warranteed, 60 days or full refund, guarantee. None of its leading competitors, including McAfee and AVG, offer a comparable program.
Both Norton and AVG offer a roughly comparable scope of protection. AVG may be better suited to personal home computer protection, whereas Norton’s programs may be better suited to safeguarding multiple computers for corporate use. Regardless, the degree of difference between the two programs is slight. Further research and price comparison via the internet is advised. Use Norton coupons to save on your purchase.
