    When did NAB exit public beta? I can't seem to find the date. Thanks in advance.

    I thought Norton Antibot died a painful death after AVG bought out Sana Security earlier this year?

    Its a behavior blocker. It offers the same functionality as Threatfire. And TF is free. Why pay $30 for Norton Antibot?

    They both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    E.g. TF is much more configurable (incl. custom rules), while Norton Antibot / Sana PRSC is more silent.

    But anyway, it seems NAB is dead.

    Don't want to make another thread when this one is closed; lets focus on the original question.
