Norton’s New Brand Promise Shines a Light on the Company’s Vision

Protecting and Empowering People to Live Their Digital Lives Safely

NortonLifeLock , a global leader in consumer Cyber Safety, announced a new promise for the Norton brand along with an upgraded visual identity to match its ambitions. Inspired by the company’s vision to protect and empower people to live their digital lives safely, the refreshed brand identity will represent the bright side to the very dark problem that is cybercrime. The shift signals Norton’s commitment to be the digital ally for consumers as well as a catalyst for change in the industry – from fear to trust and empowerment.

According to the 2021 Norton Cyber Safety Insights Report, globally 58 percent of people say they are more worried than ever before about becoming a victim of cybercrime. The cybersecurity industry has often focused on the fear of cybercrime rather than empowering people to take control of their Cyber Safety.
