For the second year in a row, Symantec Client Security prevailed as the Best Application Security Software. Voters apparently like the integrated antivirus, firewall, and intrusion-detection capabilities that they can manage through one central console.

Symantec Client Security offers more protection than antivirus-only solutions, shielding client systems from unwanted network intrusions and intruders as well as from viruses, Trojan horses, and worms. The software's multiple, coordinated security technologies aim to maximize containment and recovery and enable advanced client security policy management. The client firewall can adjust policies based on the machine's location and is designed to be nonintrusive to users. The software detects unauthorized programs such as spyware and adware and prevents client systems from being used for malicious outbound activities, such as sending worms via email messages. The software also helps administrators ensure that mobile and remote systems connecting to corporate resources through a VPN comply with security policies.
