Symantec Corp. today announced that its new all-in-one security service, Norton 360, earned the prestigious CNET Editors’ Choice Award.

“Launching Norton 360 was the culmination of years of research, development and countless hours devoted to creating the best comprehensive security solution we could build for our customers,” said Enrique Salem, group president, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corp. “CNET’s recognition of our efforts by naming Norton 360 its Editors’ Choice is one of the highest honors we could receive, and we’re excited for our customers to experience the confidence that this all-in-one security service will provide them.”

CNET Editors’ Choice winners are recognized as top products in their respective technology categories, and contribute to the standard by which all future products are judged. A key selection requirement is the difference it makes in the lives of its users, whether through innovative features, exceptional value for the price, remarkable ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to users’ productivity.

According to a review from, “Norton 360 is a good example of the ‘out of the box’ thinking needed by traditional security vendors today,” “…we think Norton 360 represents the best value of ease, tools, and performance, and we recommend it over McAfee Total Protection or Microsoft Windows Live OneCare.”
