Symantec has revealed that the Norton 360, Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus betas are available for free download now at the Norton Beta Center.
The pre-release software is designed for compatibility with the upcoming release of Windows 8.1.
Norton on Monday said the betas are engineered for outstanding protection, performance and the best possible user experience.
Improved effectiveness of reputation-based (Norton Insight) and behavioral-based (SONAR) protection engines keep consumers safe from evolving threats.
Lower memory usage and improved file copy speeds make performance even faster and lighter.
Enhanced Norton Identity Safe Experience
Increased stability, improved form-filling and an easy-to-access vault search in order to find favorite saved sites deliver a seamless user experience. Also includes better cross-platform functionality for users with mobile devices.
