Norton 360 version 6, which was released not too long ago, will feature an update that will be available once the Windows 8 Consumer Preview (Beta) is released. “We’re making it a priority to [do] whatever updates are necessary to maintain compatibility with all Windows 8 beta product builds,” Symantec stated.

Aside from Windows 8 support, Norton 360 version 6 will eat up less resources than before, have automatic error recovery, a new metering capability for bandwidth usage, and cloud sync for Identity Safe (which is the company’s new secure vault for sensitive information such as passwords).

Norton recently released the “Windows 8 beta-enabled” Norton 360 version 6, Norton 360 Everywhere (PC, Mac, and Android), and Norton One (a brand new suite with premium support and telephone hold time guarantee of less than 2 minutes).

Norton 360 version 6 runs for $89 for a three PC license with 2GB online storage and $99 for three PCs with 25GB of online storage.
