Reputation-based Security

Reputation-based Security

A feature of Norton security software that uses the data collected from millions of Norton users to determine the legitimacy of an executable program. Introduced in 2010, this method augments the common signature approach of detecting viruses, because in order to avoid detection, myriad variants of the same virus are now unleashed every year (an innovative approach to crime!). See antivirus program.
