Symantec on Wednesday released the public beta of its bundled security suite of software known as Norton 360. The service combines software to protect against viruses, spyware and fraud, as well as data backup and restoration and computer tune-up tools.
The final version is scheduled to be available by March 2007, Symantec said. No price has been released yet for the subscription service. Norton 360 was originally scheduled to be released in September, but was delayed in May, around the time Microsoft launched its Windows Live OneCare service.
