Norton 2013 beta versions now available for free download

If you want to try out the latest product coming from one of the biggest name when it comes to computer security and protection, the beta version of Norton 2013 products is available for free download.

Choose from Norton Internet Security, Norton AntiVirus and Norton 360 to protect your system. All three public betas are compatible with Windows 8 Consumer Preview, in addition to Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. In addition to delivering core protection via the cloud, the betas now include improved cloud-enabled features such as Norton Management, Norton Identity Safe and online backup, which allow consumers to conveniently manage their security and keep their personal information safe, anywhere, anytime.

The 2013 betas are designed to outperform the previous versions which already lead the industry in both protection and performance.  These betas include key enhancements including:

  • Metro App Protection – New protection capabilities provide security for consumers using Windows 8 Metro apps.
  • Next Generation Firewall Protection
  • Norton’s award-winning Insight technology has been incorporated into the Norton firewall to improve the ability to detect and block malicious network activity including botnet activity which attempts to steal consumers’ personal information.
  • Bandwidth Monitoring – Increased intelligence and improved integration with the operating system will help consumers avoid costly data overage fees by limiting non-critical updates on bandwidth sensitive networks.

All three betas are available for free download now at the Norton Beta Center.  Beta testers are encouraged to share feedback and discuss their product experiences in our online Norton Public Beta Forum.
