The Norton with LifeLock Story
Authored by a Symantec employee
How can 1 + 1 be greater than 2?
The answer lies in something intangible, like a special synergy between two strong entities that combine forces, becoming far more powerful together than apart.
That’s the story behind Norton and LifeLock, two well-known industry leaders teaming up to protect your digital universe.
Norton now: We’re not just antivirus anymore
There are more hazards in today’s digital world than viruses and ransomware. That’s why protection against security threats needs to go beyond antivirus.
Your information could be breached online and then sold on the dark web, or your privacy could be compromised while using public Wi-Fi. That’s why Norton with LifeLock helps fight these new and evolving cyber threats while helping to protect your identity. Whether you’re on your mobile device running errands or relaxing inside your connected home, this new team helps protect you against digital dangers.
Combining forces: The Symantec STAR team and LifeLock’s ID:A Labs
Norton now has two core components — STAR and ID:A Labs — that work together around the clock to help secure and protect your entire digital life.
The Symantec Security Technology and Response (STAR) team is Norton products’ technology hub. STAR is one of the largest civilian teams of security experts in the world. It’s made up of more than 500 security engineers, malware hunters, threat analysts, and researchers. With nine response centers strategically located around the globe, the STAR team operates 24 hours a day to deliver always-on protection to tens of millions of Norton customers, 365 days a year.
When LifeLock identity theft protection joined Norton security, so did ID Analytics and ID:A Labs. The ID Analytics ID Network provides comprehensive insights into identity and fraud-related risks. It gathers more than 100 million pieces of identity information every day from leading companies in almost 20 industries. This data enables its scientists to research and analyze developments in consumer behavior, identity and credit-related issues, and fraudulent activity.
Digital safety for our digital lives
Today, there’s hardly a distinction between our “online life” and our “real life.” That’s true for a lot of people, including criminals.
Thieves may still be stealing your mail, piecing together information to commit identity theft, but they also could be buying your personal information on the dark web. Maybe your Social Security number and birthdate were exposed during one of the large-scale data breaches you heard about in the news. Or maybe a hacker spied on your unencrypted data while you were using public Wi-Fi. Regardless, we live digital lives now and online privacy is a concern, whether we put our information online ourselves or a company that we entrust with our data does.
Cyber safety can help. That’s where Norton comes in. Norton with LifeLock offers security for your digital life — by helping to protect your PCs and Macs®, mobile devices, privacy, Internet-connected home network, and now your identity.
Do the math. In this case, 1 + 1 is clearly greater than 2. Norton with LifeLock is a powerful force for cybercriminals to reckon with.
