Symantec offers Vista security test drive
Symantec on Monday made available public beta versions of Norton Internet Security 2007 and Norton AntiVirus 2007 for Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista. The final releases of Symantec's Vista-compatible consumer security products are scheduled to be available for purchase when the operating system ships early next year. Symantec plans to have corporate editions of its security tools for Vista out by December.
Both betas, or test versions, are available for download. They work with the early releases of Vista, Symantec said in a statement. People who bought Norton Internet Security 2007 and Norton AntiVirus 2007 for Window XP are eligible for a free Windows Vista compatibility upgrade when the operating system ships, Symantec said.
