We are proud of the fact that, unlike the world of Windows, the Macintosh operating system is devoid of viruses (or, so we believe). This can lead to a false sense of security about which we need to be very careful. It is important that we still protect ourself from a much broader world of intrusion, misrepresentation and invasion.
VirusBarrier X6 is a powerful product that provides comprehensive protection from malware and network threats. It is the only antivirus program for Mac that includes full anti-malware protection together with firewall, network protection, anti-phishing, anti-spyware features and more.
As malware changes, protection needs to be repeatedly reinforced. While viruses, Trojan horses, worms and other forms of malware are a constant threat to computers of all kinds, the folks at Intego remind us that cyber-criminals are turning to new techniques to infect and control your Mac. These new threats come silently, with little warning, over the Internet. In many cases, simply visiting a booby-trapped web page can compromise your Mac. Focusing on malware or network attacks alone is no longer sufficient to protect Macs from the dangers of the Internet.
VirusBarrier X6 is the latest version of Intego's network and malware security program which includes more than 100 new features. With multiple threat-detection techniques, improved methods of detection, combined detection protocols, proactive behavioral analysis, and a full range of defensive functions, VirusBarrier X6 protects Macs from all known network-based threats, as well as all known malware.
Installation was very easy, and very impressive with an immediate analysis of my computer for any existing problems. It also encouraged me to make ongoing analytical settings for real-time scanning, anti-phishing protocols, firewall settings, ad banner filtering, cookie filtering, web threats, anti-spyware, data vault and other important considerations. It also puts an icon in my upper menu for instant access whenever needed. The main control panel (see above) provides an extensive range of tools to manually or automatically set and monitor the protection features. For those of us who also host a virtual Windows program (I use Parallels), Dual Protection is also available by getting the more advanced version.
