With the world practically in lockdown, many of us have found ourselves working and learning from home on possibly unsecure networks. Cybercriminals and scammers are taking advantage of this situation and targeting devices left vulnerable to cyber attacks.
The easiest way to protect yourself online while at home would be to download a strong antivirus solution, like Norton’s AntiVirus Plus or the company’s 360 range of solutions.
However, a Norton subscription isn’t always cheap, and you could find yourself out of pocket each year by a couple of hundred dollars, depending on which product you opt for. You’re in luck, though, as Norton has just kicked off its Easter sale in Australia and New Zealand, with up to 60% off its entire 2020 antivirus solution line-up.
In Australia, the basic solution – Norton AntiVirus Plus – is now available with a very significant 57% discount, while if you happen to be in New Zealand, you’ll be able to save a whopping 60%. These offers are available only for a limited time, so protect your devices for less by getting an antivirus package by April 17.
Norton AntiVirus Plus 2020 | AU$29.99 / NZ$29.99 (was AU$69.99 / NZ$74.99)
This might be a lightweight package but it’s feature-packed while also being fast and accurate. It’s more than capable of blocking most threats and it’s definitely worth a try, especially at this low price. Aussies get 57% off the yearly subscription, saving them AU$40 for a one-year subscription for a single device, while Kiwis get a slightly better discount of 60% for the same one-year package, which translates to a savings of NZ$45.
Norton 360 Deluxe 2020 | from AU$74.99 / NZ$94.99 (was AU$144.99 / NZ$149.99)
While you could opt for a 360 Standard solution, it covers only a single device. So if you’ve got multiple machines that need to be protected, it’s worth upgrading to Norton 360 Deluxe. This adds a VPN to the package so you can browse safely from any of the protected devices, and also features parental controls – an important feature as our kids are also spending more time at home these days. With 48% off for Aussies and 37% shaved off the yearly subscription for New Zealanders, this is well worth your consideration.
