Norton Antivirus and security software are designed to help defend computers, smartphones or tablets against viruses and malware. Norton antivirus security technology includes multiple layers of defense to help catch and block all kinds of online threats that try to infect your devices.

Antivirus for Mac®
Mac computers can get viruses and need file-based antivirus protection. Additionally, they need the other layers of protection offered in a device security software suite such as Firewall, Intrusion Prevention and Anti-phishing Protection. Norton has been helping to protect Mac computers for decades. Symantec launched Symantec AntiVirus for the Macintosh, or SAM, in 1989, later re-named Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh.
