I am going to buy security solution as avast premier licence expired. I am considering Kaspersky Internet Security and Norton Security Deluxe. Which is good for protection as both run fine on my all systems and I don't want to do malware testing on my pc to decide. I am getting Norton Security Deluxe 3 years 5 devices at 3500 rupees(50$) and Kaspersky Internet Security 2 years 5 devices at 3460 rupees(48$). Which one will you prefer over other?

This is a topic that has been evaluated 'out there'. The following are mostly from 2019... I included all Norton vs. Kaspersky articles that were recent that came up in a simple Google search. Some articles are more credible (to me) than others.

Some of the articles are pretty good ---- go to the link for more detailed info.

And the consensus of the reviewers is............ Norton wins.

Test both in your system for the entire duration of their trial period. Both are excellent products and both have problems that may not be visible at first.

You don't need to download malware to test. Just use your system normally. Visit web sites, check if any hardware presents problems or if your network get slower with either product installed. Check if they block sites you need for your work if you need any. If you are satisfied by both after their trials just buy the cheaper one. No product will offer you 100% protection so get the one that generate the least problems and that you think is easier to use.

Sonar is slightly efficient over SW, in some cases.
However Norton offline protection is so so despite of aggressive heutistics + Mediocre signatures.
Kaspersky is standard player across all segments..while being gentle..norton is harsh due to file insight + huge fp's
I personally recommend kaspersky, nevertheless symantec is also good apart from non existent anti phishing .
