The Norman Security Suite provides antivirus protection, an intrusion guard, a firewall, parental controls, antispam filters and privacy tools for Windows machines. Norman offers a generous internet security suite license with a year of protection for up to three PCs for one low price. You can also purchase two or three year license packages.

Unfortunately, the software has yet to prove it can protect consistently. The most recent AV-Test scores are quite low. Inconsistent test scores aside, the Norman Security Suite includes a full range of internet protection tools. It also offers a wide selection of configuration options, from hands-off default options to fine tweaking options for advanced users. The homepage provides an easy-to-understand overview of the basics such as the number of items in quarantine, incidences the firewall has blocked, the number of spam emails captured and how many elements the parental controls have blocked. All protection modules include report and log views so you can see the details of what the software has deleted or blocked. This software also has intrusion guard and privacy protection tools to protect your private information from being accessed or accidently shared online. They also have included with the Norman Security Suite an improved ability to run less intrusively and a stronger malware cleaner.

Should you require assistance with your software, you can contact this Norwegian internet security company by telephone or email. However, telephone support is not free; you'll have to pay a per-incident fee for direct telephone support. Free, unassisted support offered online includes FAQs, a PDF user manual, a forum, support articles and a free malware cleaner. You can also follow Norman on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn.

Norman Security Suite Summary:
6/10

The most important things to consider in internet security suites is their performance when it comes to preventing and removing infections. Norman Security Suite was not able to perform well enough in tests at AV-Test labs to make it a serious contender. AV-Test labs have a good reputation in the security software industry and they subject products to rigorous tests that establish how well products do at detecting and preventing malware, whether they can remove infections that are already established and whether or not the products falsely flag safe files as malicious. With so many competitors turning in better performance scores, the advantage to purchasing the Norman Security Suite is not obvious to us.

Norman Security Suite 10

Pros
One Norman license can protect up to three computers.

Cons
Norman test results are insufficient to make them a contender.

The Verdict
: 5.98/10

Given Norman's performance at AV-Test labs, it is not the very best product for protecting PCs from malware.
