NortonEvents

The Norton 360 security suite is one of the best antivirus programs out there with excellent malware detection rates, real-time protection, feature-rich antivirus application, plus a VPN, a password manager, and more. These features such as the device security help block hackers and Norton Secure VPN helps you keep your online activity private. Here are some related guides: How to download and install Norton 360 Advanced Anti-Virus on your Mac device, how to fix error reading setup initialization file, how to setup Trend Micro WorryFree Business Security Server, how to Install, Manage, Use and Uninstall ClamAV and ClamTK on Ubuntu Linux, and how to remove third-party cookies from Microsoft Edge.

Note: Norton Security History, in the Advanced details window, gives more information about a security event so that you can decide on the action to be taken. In this guide, I will be discussing the steps to achieve this.

To launch the Norton360 application, click on the LaunchPad and search for Norton as shown below.

Under General, you can click on All, and all the security events will be displayed.

History

To take a look at each event, double-click on it as shown below.

In the Security History window, in the Show drop-down list, select the category to filter the security events by category. For example, select Quarantine to list only the security events that are related to the Quarantine feature.

If there were events, you will have to double-click an item, or select More Options, to open the Security History Advanced Details or File Insight window. In my case, I have no events and therefore, the window is empty.

As you can see also, there isn’t any threat as well. If there were threats, they will be available on the right pane of the window.

For location awareness as well, when you are in a new location, this will be detected and the configuration will be updated.

For Data Protector, you have the option to exclude processes from data protector scanning, remove the file/folder from exclusion, and view File Insight.

Under the Firewall, and Application Blocking, you have the option to view the security options as desired.

You can as well view the connection that has been blocked by double-clicking on each event you wish to take a deeper look into.
