Antivirus, firewall, spam filter, identity protection—there are a vast number of protective functions that make up a security suite. In addition, the average modern household has a ton of devices to protect. That’s where a cross-platform multi-device security suite comes in. This type of utility packs all the protection you’ll need and lets you apply it to all your devices, whether they run Windows, macOS, Android, or iOS. Kaspersky Security Cloud and Norton 360 Deluxe are our Editors’ Choice picks in this category, but only one of them can be the best. Which is it?
The Pricing Problem
Kaspersky costs $99.99 per year for licenses to protect five devices. Norton costs $104.99 per year (up from $99.99) for licenses to protect five devices. So, they cost about the same, right?
Well, it’s more complicated than that. You pay $149.99 for a Kaspersky family license that protects up to 10 devices.
