Pros

My laptop is running perfectly well and strong thanks to this software and I am so grateful for it exisiting.
Over all, this program is great and serves top tier service for their customers. I love using this application.
Overall experience over a year is very good. One of the best features of Norton Antivirus is its easy to use and intelligent user experience.

Pros

Malwarebytes is seamless to integrate, extremely affordable, and protects our systems better than more expensive options.
It is very easy to use and there is a wealth of information on the internet to help with any new threats. This is my top recommendation for any essential software on computers and tablets.
Malwarebytes offered a stable, reliable and affordable solution for us while we used it. We ultimately moved away from it to Sophos.

Cons

Nothing stands out as being overly bad about Norton. At a push, I would say that there are perhaps too many notifications which can get quite annoying.
It was terrible, it took about 5 minutes to install and 3 days to get rid of all the bad effects it caused on our network. Also we were not able to get our money back even after 3 days.
It takes a long time to run the scan and it will try to interrupt me to scan at inconvenient times.

Cons

The critical issue for me is if the do the job without being annoying. Some of them seem to bring up warning windows so often that I get tired of them.
When at a user's computer, we are unable to view logs while at that computer and instead have to go login to the UI at the IT desk to view those logs which is inconvenient.
Lack of a feature to inspect emails and there is no option for a quick scan.

Reseource-heavy antivirus

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, I have moved on from NAV and instead use Defender, Malwarebytes (passive protection only), and good common sense.

Pros

It does it's job fairly well, albeit with higher-than-average false positives and relatively high use of system resources.

Cons

Compared with other antivirus software, NAV uses more system resources, makes more false positive findings, and misses malware that other products pick up. Overall, it's a less valuable layer of protection for more experienced computer users.

Very well automated and does not need user involvement

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is maintaining safe operation of the computers on our network with minimal user intervention needed.

Pros

I appreciate that the software is a mostly set and forget application. In the Advanced options, the ability to turn on email, browser, real time, firewall, and browser protections once helps take away a lot of the user worry. The password vault is also helpful in that it creates automatic passwords and stores them.

Cons

The subscription price is very high for personal use (minimum $90 for the version I require). For business use, the subscription price is reasonable, at approximately $20+ per user

Good overall protection - Not great for admins (Norton Anti-Virus Small Business)

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, the price is right and Norton does what's its' designed to do. It will work best for a smaller team where you can have the team involved in security management.

Pros

The Norton Antivirus for small business offers a lot of value. It's reasonably priced in my experience for a small business level anti-virus and gets the job done.

Cons

Not much visibility for the IT admins. Unfortunately, Norton Anti-Virus for small business doesn't offer nearly enough insight into the status of the product on the team's computer to the IT admin. There are no rules that can be set (to say prevent it from being exited). The only information you get is if the computer is online or something is wrong but you're not told what's wrong. It asks the end user to open it to see the error message. In my opinion, it would be far more efficient for the IT team to have insight and visibility into the problem and resolve it.

Improved the security of our systems

Reviewed 5 years ago

We have been using this software in our systems from the past two years. It is essential for any organization to keep its online assets secure and so we are also not an exception. Norton Security will take care of all your internet related activities and will try its best to keep your system secure from any hacking attempt. I will recommend it to others looking for their personal use or any professional purpose.

Pros

Norton is the best security solution. It can effectively protect all your devices. Protecting online security and personal or professional data is a very crucial thing today. Whenever you're connected to the Internet, Norton will monitor all your activities in real-time and blocks or notifies about any potentially harmful activity happened. The virus definition of the Norton is updated regularly,...

Cons

Norton is an excellent virus protection system but, it is not as efficient is detecting the rootkits than its competitors like Malwarebytes. I have used many other antiviruses also but, Norton consumes much memory while performing a regular or a scheduled scan. Thus, making the system a lot slower while performing any other task alongside it.

Perfect customization for opening or blocking particular Ethernet ports for professionals using special data transfer application. Good technical support and recovery tools.

Background activity has an impact on the PC run time activity. Computer optimization program is not safe enough and may cause OS destruction which is difficult for recovery. There is lack of email protection for non standard sockets.

The perfect antimalware solution

Reviewed 4 years ago

For small businesses, Malwarebytes is all you really need. It does the job and complements Windows Defender perfectly.

Pros

Malwarebytes is the hidden diamond when it comes to antivirus programs. It's a more optimised and less intrusive solution in comparison to other solutions such as McAfee and Norton, and has a clean UI to boot. The scans are fast and feel much more reliable and impactful.

Cons

Though it's less instrusive than the competition, Malwarebytes is still somewhat resource heavy, so expect some slowdown in performance when actively running it on a lower end machine. The price of the premium license is also fairly expensive.

On older computers, this may slow it down considerably.

Malwarebytes for Business

Very good malware protection

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Very good coverage of malware and can be installed next to an antivirus for maximum antivirus and malware protection.

Cons

Not much is bad about the software. Does a great job for the price. The free trial works great too if you need a quick scan.

Works in the background without me even knowing to protect my computer from viruses.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Great antivirus software for the money.

Pros

It doesn't appear to slow down the computer, it works without ever getting in the way, it doesn't require multiple and annoying prompts, and it does what it needs to do.

Cons

I really don't have any dislikes about this. If I had anything to say, I'd suggest that it at least once a quarter confirm that it is up to date.

Reliable

Reviewed 5 years ago

Malwarebytes has been great. I have used it personally for almost 10 years and professionally for about 4. This is the first tool we use to do a scan when something fishy is happening on one of our workstations.

Pros

This antivirus always manages to find malicious content that our enterprise antivirus does not. Quick to install and easy to use.

Cons

I Rightfully can't think of any cons for this product.

Great protection tool for computers

Reviewed 5 years ago

Malwarebytes provides our computers with another layer of protection from malicious software. Since not all of my colleagues are tech-savvy, it is important to have a protector which run easily and lightly on their system while also providing good protection. Malwarebytes is such a program.

Pros

Malwarebytes is very useful in catching possible malicious programs threatening your computers. It runs light on resources, making it almost unnoticeable, unlike some other antivirus. Malwarebytes also updates regularly thus capable of noticing malicious programs undetected by other antivirus.

Cons

Its description says that it cannot replace an antivirus. While I understand that Malwarebytes' focus is on the newest threat, I don't understand why it cannot design its software into a full-fledged antivirus. It is annoying to have another antivirus in my system.

Great cyber security protection

Reviewed 6 years ago

My business is fully virtual so cyber security is of utmost importance, this product gives me the peace of mind and reliability I need to conduct business.

Pros

It's easy to setup, works as advertised and a great value for the price. The free version is good if you remember to run scans manually, for a small cost you can upgrade to have the peace of mind of automatic scans. It found threats that my antivirus didn't.

Cons

It works best in combination with antivirus software but my Windows Defender considers this antivirus software so I get a warning about having 2 antivirus programs running. I really can't pick one over the other because they each cover the vulnerabilities that the other one doesn't.
