Symantec's Norton anti-virus 2010 betas go live

Symantec has released live betas of Norton Internet Security 2010 and Norton AntiVirus 2010. 

The updates to Symantec's flagship antimalware products feature reputation-based security technologies as part of what the company is calling a new security model - codenamed "Quorum" - that Symantec says will 'tackle undiscovered malware and today's toughest threats head-on'. 

Expected to launch in the autumn of this year, the 2010 models of Symantec's Norton lineup represent a radical change of approach from the world's biggest security vendor.  They will all be Windows 7 compatible. 

The NIS 2010 beta is available for free from .  (Only those people who consider themselves sufficiently technically savvy to deal with software glitches and flaws should test beta software, particularly security software. )

Symantec says it is seeing more than 200 million online attacks each month, and that as a consequence traditional signature-based security solutions are now 'obsolete'.  Due to the rapidly changing and exponential nature of the threat, it is no longer sufficient to recognise threats in the wild, and then write signatures to counter them. 

"Looking at the sheer volume of infected systems in the world, one thing is resoundingly clear: basic security protection is not good enough," said Symantec senior vice presidet Rowan Trollope. 

"Norton pioneered the signature-based model of security and today we're introducing a new standard that reconsiders all facets of protection. 

"'Quorum' lets us stop the bad guys even if we've never seen their 'wanted' poster. "
