Cybersecurity software and services company NortonLifeLock (formerly Symantec) has announced that it is adding a novel feature to its suite of antivirus, VPN, and Dark Web monitoring technologies, Norton 360. Starting today, select Norton 360 customers will be able to check out a new feature dubbed Norton Crypto, which allows users to mine Ethereum and track/transfer their earnings to a Norton Crypto Wallet. Not surprisingly, Norton stressed in its press release that its software enables a secure and reliable way for consumers to dabble into the world of cryptocurrency.
“As the crypto economy continues to become a more important part of our customers’ lives, we want to empower them to mine cryptocurrency with Norton, a brand they trust,” said Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock. “Norton Crypto is yet another innovative example of how we are expanding our Cyber Safety platform to protect our customers’ ever-evolving digital lives.”
