Windows 8 apps: Norton Satellite

Windows 8 apps: Norton Satellite






Easy integration with online services such as Facebook is a plus point for Windows 8 – but you need to keep an eye on your security. And the free Norton Satellite can help.

The program uses apps to scan your Facebook links and Dropbox files, for instance, alerting you to threats before they have a chance to infect you. And if your worries lie elsewhere, then Satellite can scan particular files or folders on demand.

You don’t get real-time protection for your whole system here, and so Satellite is no substitute for a full-strength antivirus package. It’s simple, lightweight and easy to use, though, and will add a welcome extra layer of security to any Windows 8 system
