Norton has everything from parental controls to pulse updates to network mapping. The parental control tool will let you create unique profiles for everyone in your family. You can restrict the websites your children visit as well as when and how long they can be online. This security suite will also log the websites your children visit so you can know what they are doing online. You can also restrict the applications they have access to so they cannot alter your software settings.

This suite provides lots of scan options. You can schedule scans, block files from scans, limit scans while certain applications (such as games) are running, and monitor bandwidth. The bandwidth monitor can detect connections to a 3G or 4G network and limit non-critical updates.

The Norton Internet Security suite includes a password manager and tools to protect your identity and login information. The password manager is Identity Safe. It can securely store your address, usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and email addresses. It will also automatically enter this information into forms so you can bypass keyloggers.
