Symantec launches Norton Zone secure cloud storage
Today, Symantec announced the availability of Norton Zone, a secure file sharing service that allows users to easily and safely access, sync and share photos, videos and documents. The new cloud file-sharing service leverages Norton's security expertise to keep data safe. Norton Zone provides 5 free GB of storage and users in the US can now purchase additional storage if they need it. Symantec never claims ownership over any data that is uploaded to the service, and all files uploaded to Norton Zone are encrypted. Norton anti-malware scanning technology automatically checks content for viruses and other threats before it is shared. Norton expects to announce additional updates to the service later this year with "new feature modules and enhancements."
