With the Norton 360 version 21.x (2014) and higher, during the disk optimization process, solid-state drives (SSD) are defragmented only in Windows 8 and up. More on this support page at Symantec.com.

After all, the service can be disabled and run manually if you have regular drives that require periodical defragmentation service.
