Macs Need Antivirus Protection Software, Just Like Any Other Computer
Mac users have been misled by the common myth that “Macs can’t get viruses,” and that antivirus software is unnecessary. The reality is all machines are vulnerable, and devious cyber-criminals use a variety of malware that threatens Macintosh computers. Worse yet, they’re not just targeting Macs—they’re after your sensitive personal information and your money. You can protect your Mac and your precious data with Intego VirusBarrier, the award-winning Mac antivirus software.
Real-Time Antivirus with Automatic Scans Keep You Covered 24/7
Intego VirusBarrier provides real-time antivirus protection for Macs, and scans files whenever they’re accessed to keep your Mac free of malware. Our Mac antivirus software automatically checks for the latest updates to make sure you’re protected against the newest threats.
Antivirus protection against both Mac and PC malware
Intego VirusBarrier not only protects you from existing Mac threats, it detects PC-based malware so you don’t spread infected files to friends, family, or work colleagues.
We know Macs. Our competitors don't.
We build our antivirus software from the ground up for macOS and Mac OS X—and we’ve been doing it that way since we started in 1997. Our award-winning, highly trusted security products are the optimum solutions for protecting, cleaning, and organizing Macs.
Use a PC? We’ll protect that too.
Lots of households have both Windows-based PCs and Macs. To ensure that both have complete antivirus protection, we’ve partnered with Panda to provide Windows coverage as well.
Our new interface keeps it simple
As Mac lovers, we prefer software of great simplicity. Mac applications should be effective, straightforward and unobtrusive, and that’s exactly how we designed all of our security software to operate—the way Macs are designed.
Antivirus protection for iPhone and iPad
Intego VirusBarrier scans and detects malicious files received via email on your iOS devices whenever they’re plugged into your computer, and prevents your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch from passing malware to other computers.
Intelligent Firewall for Home and Hotspot Network Protection
Connected to the Internet, your Mac is no more immune to intrusion than the next computer. To the bad guys, it’s 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.
Location-aware firewall protects your Mac on the go!
Whether you’re at work, traveling to conferences or in a cafe, Intego NetBarrier will automatically switch to the appropriate firewall setting for the best level of protection.
Identify and block untrusted devices
Intego NetBarrier identifies various devices that are trying to access your Mac and lets you decide what’s allowed in and what gets turned away—providing peace of mind when sharing files with others.
Settings as easy as 1-2-3
Just because Intego NetBarrier provides sophisticated firewall protection for Mac doesn’t mean network settings should be confusing and complicated. With simplicity in mind, the intuitive firewall makes it easy for you to adjust settings to the best level of protection.
Two-way Mac firewall watches your network connections
Intego NetBarrier is a two-way firewall that provides anti-spyware measures to protect outgoing data sent from your Mac, and also actively monitors applications using your network and keeps you informed when a new connection is opened—letting you block or allow attempts to access your Mac
Intuitive and easy to configure firewall
Easy to use and simple to configure, you can customize Intego NetBarrier rules settings to automatically set protection levels perfect for public or private networks. Our Mac firewall has you covered with the best level of protection!
Block connections to specific domains
Third party applications can be very useful, but many collect information about you and your business while you use it. Intego NetBarrier lets you block applications from communicating with specific Internet domains while keeping the functionality you want.
You wouldn’t let your children ride bikes on a freeway would you?
The Internet moves fast—maybe a little too fast for your children. While the Web puts a world of information at kids’ fingertips, it also puts them just one click away from inappropriate websites and dangerous people. Intego ContentBarrier is our parental controls solution that allows you to create the proper boundaries for any child from toddler to teen.
Parental Controls to keep your children on kid friendly sites
Gambling sites and especially pornography are no place for children. Intego ContentBarrier can block out entire categories of websites, so your children aren’t exposed to objectionable content. You can also set up a specific list of approved websites, so your kids can access them without accidentally running into a filter.
User profiles and custom parental controls for each child
No two kids are alike. Each of your children has a different maturity level and deserves a different type of Internet access. Intego ContentBarrier features present user profiles or customizable parental control settings for each family member. That way, your teenager can get online to do research for homework while your youngest can print a coloring sheet or watch her favorite cartoon.
Set time limits on Internet use
Sometimes your children need the computer to do their homework, but other times you need to shut off access. Intego ContentBarrier lets parents control and restrict the time of day your children can access the Internet, so they don’t try to sneak on late at night. Settings can be easily reconfigured, so you can adjust our parental controls accordingly.
Control settings remotely
Out to dinner while your teen needs to access the Web for a school assignment? No problem. You can enable sites via a web browser, so he can get his homework done while you enjoy your night out.
Keep an eye on sites they visit
Intego ContentBarrier lets you know exactly where your children are going online. You can configure our parental controls to record keystrokes or take screenshots of active applications. It’s just another way to make sure your kids haven’t stumbled across inappropriate content.
Anti-Predator chat monitoring
Intego ContentBarrier includes Anti-Predator chat monitoring technology for all standard chat protocols. Our parental control software watches for objectionable chat content and blocks inappropriate chats, and if desired, you can opt to receive email alerts whenever objectionable content is detected.
