Symantec is attempting to take the wind out of rival Network Associates' sails by bundling some of its most popular utilities in a suite, Norton System Works, which will include Internet and desktop functions.
Symantec officials denied this was in response to Network Associates' own plans to launch a product suite. Two weeks ago, Network Associates acquired Cybermedia for $130 million and said it would incorporate its utility products into a suite.
Norton System Works will include Symantec's Norton Utilities, Norton Antivirus, Norton Uninstall Deluxe, Norton Crashguard, and a six-month subscription to Norton Web Services, and is expected to be priced at under $100, around half the price of purchasing the products separately.
