    Do we count Symantec and Norton as one whole?

    But isn't Norton a more "premium" version?

    It's the same engine. Thus, they don't list it twice. And no, Norton Deluxe is not a more premium version, a bloatware version with toolbars, file shredder, online cloud storage, nagging, popups, system optimizer, cleaner, defragmenter, password manager, everything under the sun
