A newly revealed feature of NIS 2012 is Safe Web for Chrome. Safe Web is a NIS feature that checks the safety of links in web pages. Already available for Internet Explorer and Firefox, Symantec has now added support for Google's increasingly popular Chrome browser.
The company is also promoting improvements to Identity Safe, a NIS feature for the secure storage of web passwords and bookmarks. Identity Safe can now store the encrypted file in the cloud, allowing its use from any browser with this feature installed.
David Hall, regional product marketing manager, said the underlying engine had been completely rewritten for compatibility with an even broader range of web sites. Identity Safe was designed with cloud safety in mind, he added.
Identity Safe works with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, and includes anti-phishing features.
That's not the only freshly-revealed feature of NIS 2012, so please read on.
