Symantec is now developing its version 16 of Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton AntiVirus (NAV) products, to be called Norton Internet Security 2009 and Norton AntiVirus 2009. Both 2009 series security apps are based on the Norton Protection System, a multi-layered set of technologies that work in concert to stop threats before they impact user’s computer, by using security information from millions of users to pre-determine what files and processes are safe, and what aren’t.
