Norton Security v22.17
Norton Security 2015 sports a major UI redesign.

For years Norton has been synonymous with security, and aside from a slight name change, Norton Security continues its fine tradition of offering comprehensive protection for PCs worldwide. (And it now covers Macs, iOS and Android devices, too - up to five in total.)

There’s everything you’d expect in such a security suite: strong antivirus protection that monitors files and programs not just for known threats but for suspicious behaviour too, helping block malware before it can gain a foothold on your system.

There’s the firewall, of course, silently blocking attacks from both outside and inside your PC. Web Safety components check the links you click to make sure they’re safe to visit, while downloaded files are screened and checked for both security and reliability.

Norton Security also provides a spam filter, password manager/form filler, network monitor, startup program manager, bootable repair disc option, performance-related tools and more.

What’s new? The most obvious change is a brand new user interface, updated to blend in better with the modern look of Windows 10. This release also debuts what Symantec terms its "next generation" anti-malware engine, which evaluates and offers protection against threats in real time using the cloud to reduce definition files by up to 80 per cent.

Other improvements include intelligent boot-time protection, more aggressive threat detection heuristics and automatic aggressive botnet scanning triggers. Smart data leak protection has been added along with improved Norton Community Watch integration.

Browser protection is now delivered without the need for installing browser plug-ins, while protection against socially engineered attacks has also been tightened.

The SONAR engine – used to detect brand new threats – has been improved alongside performance tweaks.

Please note, Norton Security replaces Norton Antivirus, Norton Internet Security and Norton 360. There is no direct upgrade path from those products to Norton Security - you'll have to buy a new licence - but of course they will still protect you until the end of your current subscription.

What's new in v22.17.3.50?

- Automatic Renewal (AR) opt-in offer will be available on Norton main UI for customers who are not enrolled in AR. The banner on main UI will be shown only if subscription remaining days is more than 60 days. The offer is not available in China, Japan, Korea and France. 
- Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup 'Internet Security' pillar health in Main UI, Task Bar icon and System tray icon will show Red, if Safe Web extension is not installed in Default browser. This will be visible in English builds only.
- Minor bug fixes
- Performance enhancements

Verdict:

Time will tell if the new changes deliver better security for your PC, but it’s good to see Symantec continuing to evolve its product with increased protection and a slicker user interface.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.120

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.120 

- Muted chats will no longer display notification badges on the app icon when you receive new messages.

- New alignment guidelines help you position stickers, emojis, and more when editing media.
