Norton 360 Multi Device Giveaway

Protecting Multiple Devices in a Single Solution with Norton 360 Multi-Device

While we wait for a single device that will be able to encompass all our smartphones, tablets and computers features into one, we will keep adding new devices into our digital lives. As the world increasingly becomes a ‘multi-device personality’, the cyber threats out there increases as well.

The latest Norton 360 Multi-Device from Norton by Symantec protects us from evolving threats in our daily online lives. The latest version improves on the industry’s leading protection and performance, and is designed for compatibility with the new features of Windows 8.1. The Norton 360 Multi-Device comes in the form of a single license to protect up to five different devices.

According to the 2013 Symantec Internet Security Threat Report, Web attacks increased 30 percent in 2012, driven by the easy availability of malware toolkits and the high frequency of unpatched vulnerabilities on websites. We are exposed to cyber threats even when visiting a legitimate website, putting our devices and personal information at risk. Norton 360 Multi-Device actively protects your devices from online threats, without impacting speed and performance.

The Norton 360 Multi-Device product’s five patented layers of protection provide comprehensive security, improved performance and ease of usability. The key features include:     
  •          Multi-Device Protection – The Norton 360 Multi-Device software gives protection to all devices – PCs, Mac, iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tablets.

    ·         SONAR Behavioural Protection SONAR detects the signs that a file is dangerous to proactively protect you from never-before-seen threats. It helps with the removal and cleanup of malware attempts by saving the evidence of the attack for later use by Norton’s repair technologies. This remediation helps to ensure that all traces of a malware attack are removed and a system is returned to its original state.

    ·         Internet Protection System – This feature actively protects your devices from online threats. The system scours websites and social networking sites for suspicious links and content to identify the latest social networking scams.

    ·         Parental Control – This feature helps you protect your kids from online dangers by giving you direct access to Norton Family. Norton Family is a web-based service that helps connect parents to their children’s online lives and start a dialogue about appropriate online habits.

    ·         Faster performance – Based on recent testing, compared with last year’s releases, Norton products have improved boot time by 15 percent, install speed by 10 percent and memory usage during scan by 100MBs, resulting in the fastest and lightest performance yet. (Source: PassMark, August 2013)

    ·         Locate missing phones/tablets – The Scream Alarm feature alerts you to the location of a misplaced mobile device, and the Remote Locate feature pinpoints your lost or stolen device on a map.

    ·         Enhanced Norton Identity Safe Norton Identity Safe remembers, secures and automatically enters your usernames and passwords for you, so they can't be lost or stolen. The latest release offers enhanced password management tool, including improved form filling, with drag-and-drop functionality and full vault searches available directly from the toolbar to help manage passwords even more securely and conveniently. 
The latest version of Norton 360 Multi-Device, is now available for purchase in Malaysia through various retailers and online at http://malaysia.norton.com.

Travel Safely Online with Norton by Symantec

Heading out for a vacation,
During the festive holidays,
Has never been easier thanks to the Internet. 

Booking your reservations online, 
Via mobile devices or desktops, 
For hotels, camping sites, tours, auto rentals, 
And other attractions is just the beginning. 

The Internet provides so many ways 
To optimise your time once you've reached your destination, too. 
Of course, 
There are also missteps and mistakes 
You'll want to avoid online,
That can put a real damper 
On your holiday 
And jeopardize your safety and security.



The Facts:

·         Last year, mobile “malware” families (malicious software that can threaten or compromise the information on your mobile device) increased by 58 percent (2013 Symantec Internet Security Threat Report)
·         61 percent of malicious sites are actually legitimate websites that have been compromised and infected with malicious codes (2013 Symantec Internet Security Threat Report)
·         More than 1/3 of smartphone users have experienced mobile cybercrime (2013 Norton Report)
·         57 percent of users aren’t aware that security solutions for mobile devices exist (2013 Norton Report)


Make Planning Fun
Whether you visit the website for the place of your dreams, 
Download podcasts of walking tours of ancient cities, 
Or lock in dinner reservations at a hotspot, 
The Internet makes travel so much more enjoyable. 

Don't Leave Breadcrumbs
There are tales of crooks noticing planned trips on social networks 
And taking advantage by scheduling break-ins during the victim's vacation. 
Or they could start taking over your accounts 
By filing a postal change of address form 
And intercepting the verification form that gets sent out.

The solution is to not be specific about who you are and exactly where you're going. 
You also don't want to divulge your exact dates of travel. 
Too many times people use their real names or personal email addresses
While posting their planned travel dates and destinations. 
If you post questions about travel in an online travel forum, 
Don't be specific about your dates or hotels. 
Make sure nothing in your online name makes it possible to find you in the real world. 

If someone on a message board offers to help you and asks you to email or telephone them, 
Be guarded and careful about what you tell them. 
Most likely they are simply being helpful and generous 
With their travel experience, 
But there are enough online crooks 
That it pays to be slightly paranoid about any cyber stranger.



Be on Guard
Be extra cautious about documentation that contains your personal information, too.
A misplaced or lost boarding pass may enable someone to engage in identity theft. 
Cybercriminals have demonstrated how easily 
The limited information on a boarding pass stub (full name and frequent flier number) 
Can provide access to a traveler's profile on an airline's website. 
Often, those profiles include home and business addresses, 
Telephone numbers, and even passport or credit card data.

Offline, limit the information you put on your luggage, too. 
It's not necessary to tape your name and address on your bags.
Don't even include your home information. 
We'd recommend a first initial, last name, and a cell phone number or email address only. 
The airlines can use that to find you, 
And it's not enough for a criminal to determine your address 
And do damage while you're gone.

Hit the Road Safely
Remember to be vague about your itinerary, 
And don't let your online entries identify exactly 
Who you are, where you live, and when you're leaving home. 
As long as you don't get careless with the information you're sharing online, 
The Internet is a great place to plan your vacation.


Top Tips on Safe Online Travels from Norton by Symantec

What to do Before You Travel:

·         Beware of Fake Travel Promotions – Be careful when clicking on travel promotions and offers for your next flight or hotel booking as they might be disguised to look like trusted and reputable brands to steal your personal information. Ensure that you are protected online so that cybercriminals won’t be able to ruin your vacation.

·         Mind Your Settings – Set any Bluetooth devices to "hidden", not "discoverable". If you don’t use the Bluetooth function, make sure you turn it off altogether. Also, disable geo-tracking on your smart phones.

·         Reset your Passwords – Use strong passwords on your mobile device, laptops, and tablets.  Make sure everyone in the family does the same. Also, change your network configuration to manually select each wireless network it joins, rather than any automatic selection.

·         Secure your mobile device and tablet – To help avoid possible fraud, make sure you get Internet security software on all your mobile devices before you leave home. Get a comprehensive security solution for your mobile device which will not only prevent strangers from using it if it gets lost or stolen, but will detect and eliminate mobile threats, block unwanted calls and texts, and provides top-notch anti-phishing web protection at airports and other public Wi-Fi areas where risks are high. Get the same protection on your tablets.

·         Back up! – Before your trip, back up your files, your programs, and your personal data.

·         Don’t advertise your trip – As much fun as it is to share your plans with friends and family, it is unwise to advertise the dates, places, and times you’ll be out of town.  Criminals look for all kinds of hints on how to steal from you, and if you’re letting everyone know that you won’t be home between certain dates, how difficult is it for bad guys to find out where you live?  Ease up on the social networking when it comes to vacation details. 
  

What to do While You’re Traveling:

·         Avoid Bill Paying and other financial transactions – Try getting all your financial chores done before you get to the airport. If you absolutely must pay that one bill you forgot to take care, go ahead and do it. But get your personal business done ahead of time so you can avoid entering user names and passwords on a busy, crowded, and unsecured airport Internet. Always assume your Wi-Fi connection, particularly at the airport, is vulnerable. Limit email and IM to casual communication.

·         Remind Your Kids – Refresh your kids with information about smart and safe Internet use in a public place. Tell them to be wary of anyone sitting too close; make sure they NEVER share their user names and passwords; and encourage off-line games and videos instead of online activities, particularly while at the airport.

·         Watch your Back – “Shoulder surfers” are crooks that looking for people so absorbed in online activity that they won’t notice someone taking note of passwords and other information getting typed in. These identity thieves are at the airport, a hotel lobby, a crowded bar or restaurant – anywhere where you might be mindlessly surfing the Internet.  Be aware of your surroundings!   Remember, if you can read the magazine of the person sitting nearby, he or she can probably read the screen on your laptop. An inexpensive privacy screen is a great in-flight option and they’re sold in every local office supply shop.


·         Turn off file sharing – Turn off file sharing while at the airport. If you have highly sensitive or personal data, consider storing it elsewhere.

Coming up on my next post...
I'll be giving away...
3x Norton 360 Multi Device product 
Worth MYR 249.00 each!

Genting Outdoor Theme Park no more...

We went Genting again,
But this time,
No more Genting Outdoor Theme Park......
In few more years time..
It'll transformed into.....
Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park!
I'm pretty sure the new theme park,
Will looks more amazing and trendy..............
Looking forward to play there in future......

Daddy and mummy purposely bring us,
To the outdoor theme park,
Just before they close it....

Riding the antique car,
That mummy used to ride,
When she was a kid,
Together with us!~
A place full of our childhood memories,
As well as our parent's childhood memories..
:)

This is how the Outdoor Theme Park looks like currently,
And this round,
We spent most of our time in Indoor Theme Park......
:)
