A testament to how dependent we are on our mobile devices these days, Norton announced their 2012 product line this week, and they’re focusing on our mobile security. Though they announced a wide array of products, three are Android-focused: Norton Tablet Security, Norton Anti-Theft Beta, and Norton Online Family. Descriptions from Norton follow:
- Norton Tablet Security – Available in the next few weeks, this new offering is designed specifically for Android tablets to protect the device, your privacy and your important data against loss, theft, viruses, and other threats.
- Norton Anti-Theft Beta – Available as a free download today, this new web service allows users to quickly and easily lock, locate and possibly get back a PC, laptop or Android device – and the invaluable information on it – in the event it is ever lost or stolen. Norton Anti-Theft beta includes several key features including Sneak Peek, which allows users to remotely activate the Web cam on their lost or stolen device to see who has it.
- Norton Online Family for Android and iOS users – Now out of beta, this free mobile application allows parents using Norton Online Family to view their children’s online activities and manage each child’s “House Rules” from their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or Android device.
