You bought a Mac because they are "safe". The problem is, your Mac is no more immune to intrusion than the next computer - unless you vow to never connect to the Internet with it. To the bad guys, your Mac is just an IP Address and open ports, and accessing your personal information via these cyber-criminal gateways is easier than you want to know. Intego NetBarrier blocks unsolicited visitors in their tracks, keeping the bad guys out of your Mac.
Automatic protection as you hop networks
Whether you’re at work, meeting clients, or traveling to trade shows and conferences, Intego NetBarrier X8 will switch to the appropriate setting for the perfect level of protection.
Identify and block untrusted devices
Want to share files with your colleague without opening up your computer to everyone else? Intego NetBarrier X8 identifies various devices that are trying to access your Mac and lets you decide what’s allowed in and what gets turned away.
Settings as easy as 1-2-3
Network settings shouldn’t be confusing and complicated. We’ve simplified the options to home, public, or work. When we see that your network connection has changed, we let you know and make it easy for you to adjust to the best level of protection.
Configuring connections just got easier
Intego NetBarrier X8 makes changes to your firewall simple and, better yet, understandable. Want to temporarily allow connections from the Internet or allow remote desktop? No problem. The settings are intuitive for you and your employees.
Watching your network connections
Intego NetBarrier X8 actively monitors applications using your network. Whenever a connection is opened, we’ll ask if you want to allow it. If you recognize the application, we’ll let it run. If not, we’ll block it. If something is using too much bandwidth for your liking, you’ll be able to identify it and shut it down.
Block connections to specific domains
Don’t want third parties collecting information about you and your business while you use an application? Intego NetBarrier X8 lets you block applications from communicating with specific Internet domains while keeping the functionality you want.
