Keeping up with the latest definitions for your antivirus application is essential in ensuring that your Mac is fully guarded against the latest online threats.
Since it would be bothersome to update your antivirus software’s database frequently, some security developers use external virus definition updaters.
Install the newest Norton AntiVirus definitions
Norton AntiVirus Definitions is a free installer package that updates the definitions database for your Norton or Symantec AntiVirus software to the latest version.
Due to its nature, the Norton AntiVirus Definitions installer requires an already installed Norton AntiVirus on your Mac.
Furthermore, new versions of Norton AntiVirus Definitions are released randomly; sometimes, a new package is released daily for 7 consecutive days and, other times, a new releases might appear 7 days after the latest one. Therefore, the release dates are based on the threats that have been discovered in a timeframe.
Safeguard your Mac against the latest threats
The definitions contain updated software solutions designed to protect your computer against the late-breaking worms, viruses, spyware, trojans and other malicious software that circulates on the web. Symantec works around the clock to deliver the anti-malware tools to combat newest online threats.
Another thing to note is that Norton AntiVirus Definitions provides 2 types of installers - one for Intel Macs running Norton AntiVirus 11.x and Symantec AntiVirus 10.2, as well as an installer for PPC Macs running Norton AntiVirus 11.x, Norton AntiVirus 10.x and Symantec AntiVirus 10.0, 10.1 and 10.2.
A simple to follow definitions installer
To sum up, Norton AntiVirus Definitions is an easy-to-use OS X package that works out of the box and provides the most recent definition updates for your Norton / Symantec antivirus software. The installer is free and deploying it on your Mac requires following just a few simple steps.
