How do I access the mobile site?

Access Connect automatically identifies the device you’re using and serves you the mobile site if you are using a recognized mobile device.

What can tasks can I complete on my mobile device?

  • Browsing content
  • Searching content
  • Making comments on content
  • Creating your own blog entry, idea, or forum discussion topic

What devices support the mobile site?

We tested the mobile site on the most recent versions of iOS, Android and Blackberry. Due to the large number of devices we cannot test all of them. We tested using the native browsers on each device. Also, please be aware that the interface may look slightly different depending on the device you are using.

How can I learn more about the navigation on Symantec Connect?

Symantec can confirm that the source code for 2006 versions of Norton Antivirus posted by Anonymous is authentic.  The exposure of this code poses no increased risk to Norton or Symantec customers.  This code is part of the original cache of code for 2006 versions of the products that Anonymous has claimed to possess over the last  few weeks.  We anticipated that the code would be posted.  As we have already stated publicly, our analysis shows that due to the age of the exposed code, Symantec antivirus or endpoint security consumer and business customers – including anyone running Norton products – should not be in any increased danger of cyber attacks resulting from this incident.  We also anticipate that Anonymous will post the rest of the code they have claimed to have in their possession. So far, they have posted code for the 2006 versions of Norton Utilities, pcAnywhere, and Norton Antivirus. We also anticipate that at some point, they...

In recent weeks you may have noticed a few new colorful badges adorning various user contributions on the site.  Below is a brief explanation of the various badges and their meaning.


 - Admins are responsible for the general running on the site. They may move posts to the correct forums, help identify potential abuses on the site, and generally assist users.

Symantec Employee

 - Pretty self explanatory.

Trusted Advisor

 - The “Trusted Advisor” designation is given to an elite group of Symantec Connect community members who voluntarily share their expertise and experience with the Symantec Connect Community. Trusted Advisors are identified in the community with a special badge and are the front line of support for community users. Trusted Advisors are not Symantec employees. Trusted Advisors are not paid and offer up their expertise purely on a volunteer basis.

Data Explosion * Risk and Compliance * Cloud * Mobility * Making it all work together

These topics are all front of mind in our increasingly complex IT landscape. Symantec offers the solutions to protect your most valuable asset. Your data and your patients’ data.

Evolving infrastructure, increasing complexity, and the challenging threat landscape are forcing Health IT to evolve from a systems-centric to an information-centric model of service delivery. Hospitals are under massive pressure to protect their information, all the while needing to increase the scope of infrastructure their employees can use to access this data. With this shift, providers will be managing information and applications, across ever changing environments such as virtual, mobile devices and cloud-based applications - - all under increasing regulatory control, enforcement, and penalties.

Hi all,

I wanted to thank you for this feedback (adding a new "Recent Activity" sort order to forum lists) and let you know we're going to roll this new sort option out to the production server this evening.

Cautionary note: To make this work, we're having to re-index the site (which takes several hours). During that time, the sort order will, indeed, be out of whack.

We hope to have the indexing completed at the latest by Sunday afternoon and at the earliest by Saturday morning (PST).

Thanks again for your support.

Symantec will be conducting a research study in June to gather feedback from Connect users who have also shopped in our online Business stores. The purpose of the research is to collect important, time-sensitive feedback, and by participating, you’ll allow Symantec to better meet your needs. 

Study method:

The research will be conducted via phone. Specifically, participants will provide their feedback via a 45-minute phone discussion. During the call, the moderator will share materials through a webcast for study participants to evaluate. Everyone who participates in the study will be paid for their time.

How to participate:

Symantec has commissioned Mozaic Group, an independent research firm, to conduct the interviews.

If you are interested in participating, please reply-to  with your name and...
