Symantec announced the new Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac, featuring vulnerability protection technology and antivirus for Mac users running Boot Camp or Windows virtualization software — programs that allow users to run both Mac OS X Leopard and Windows operating systems.
This solution provides comprehensive protection from both Mac and Windows-based vulnerabilities and viruses. With this dual protection functionality, Mac users benefit by receiving both the number one selling Mac antivirus solution – Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac – and the award-winning antivirus and vulnerability protection of Norton AntiVirus 2008 for Windows.
Mac users who run dual operating systems can now have comprehensive security protection with automatic updates from Symantec’s leading global security network. Norton AntiVirus Dual Protection for Mac automatically detects and removes viruses, scans and cleans downloaded files and e-mail attachments, and incorporates discrete yet effective security alerts. In addition, it is designed to automatically update itself in the background, allowing users to conduct their online activities without interruption.
