In order to use powershell, NIS would need to have a powershell interface, a module you could load and then use. I am pretty sure that it doesn't, since google stays quiet - closest hit is this: http://www.activexperts.com/admin/powershell/network-monitor/anti-virus/norton/norton-is-2011/

You should use what Norton offers, if any.
