Norton Security Standard to Norton AntiVirus Plus?

My Norton Security Standard subscription will be up soon, and I'm still a bit confused about the new product offerings.  I currently only need the 1 licence and don't care about or want the the VPN or the cloud backup.  I like my current Norton Security for the firewall and virus protection.  Norton seems to be telling me to upgrade to the new Norton 360 standard, but wouldn't AntiVirus Plus be a better selection for me?

The AntiVirus Plus looks to be the closest offering to the current Norton Security Standard as it doesn't include any of the VPN or LifeLock junk.  But if I'm correct AntiVirus Plus does include the firewall.  Am I correct in that AntiVirus Plus is sort of the 'new' Norton Security Standard offering?

new offerings

Norton AntiVirus Plus does include Smart Firewall sans VPN or LifeLock. 



old offerings 

Norton Security Standard is part of Symantec's all-new 2017 product lineup, which has been greatly simplified compared to previous years. Gone are Norton AntiVirus, Norton Internet Security, Norton 360 and Norton 360 Multi-Device. Customers now have a choice between Norton Security Standard, Norton Security Deluxe and Norton Security Premium.

Norton Security Standard protects all your devices no matter what they are: PC, Mac®, tablet, smartphone. You don't need to buy different security products for different devices. And as a user you don't have to worry about what happens behind the scenes on these devices; your data and privacy are always safe. 


are we confused yet 


Re: Norton Security Standard to Norton AntiVirus Plus?

Thanks!  Yep, I would think based on what you posted from the 'If You Were Using' ... Norton Security Standard should recommend the new AntiVirus Plus.  But it sounds like Norton is really trying to push everyone onto one of the new 360 offerings at a higher price-point.

I used to be a Norton Internet Security user until it became Norton Security Standard, which may now become AntiVirus Plus

Shop best price from reputable dealer.   I understand you're wanting to avoid VPN & LifeLock.
