Norton by Symantec and Facebook have partnered to help protect Facebook users and make the web a safer place to connect with friends and family. As a member of the Facebook AV Marketplace, Norton will provide Facebook users with a six-month trial to the Norton AntiVirus 2012. Norton will also work with Facebook to detect and alert users to potentially malicious URLs on the site, helping to provide a safer experience for members.



“As the world’s largest online community, Facebook is committed to ensuring security for our members,” said Joe Sullivan, Chief Security Officer, Facebook. “Norton has long been a trusted brand in security and through our partnership, we will help ensure our members are protected from threats on Facebook and any other site they visit.”


Facebook and Symantec have also released a joint white paper, “Scams and Spam to Avoid on Facebook,” illustrating the most prevalent security issues and threats targeting Facebook today and how users can protect themselves. The whitepaper can be accessed at the Facebook Security Blog.


Facebook members who are PC users can obtain their six-month trial subscription to Norton AntiVirus 2012 by visiting the Facebook AV Marketplace, which features a variety of consumer security offerings to protect against online threats. Mac users can obtain a six-month trial subscription to Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac. At launch these partnership offerings will be available in English.

“Norton and Facebook share a common goal of protecting consumers online,” said Marian Merritt, Norton Internet Safety Advocate. “This partnership brings the industry’s best security to the Facebook community and is one more step in Norton’s effort to protect consumers and the stuff that matters to them, whatever device or platform they choose.”
