I've personally still found Norton to be robust and adequate; I switched
from MCAFEE a long time ago. I have subscriptions for my home based office
machines, and the company I primarily work for has a corporate subscription.
I've enjoyed the central update capabilities of all Symantec products (I
have a few different products). I have also found for the frequency of the
updates has been adequate to address the new variants that come out
The script blocking capabilities has saved me a few times on various web
URL's that had harmful intent (sometimes even when I deserved to be infected
:)). The UnErase wizard with the Norton Protected files is also nice.
I really can't speak to the management of the AV solution from an enterprise
perspective - as I've not dealt with that side (Although my primary company
has 5000+ employees being managed through the corporate subscription), but
as a small business owner and consumer, I've been very pleased.
