Connected to the Internet, Your Mac is Just Another Target
It’s not your fault; you’ve been led to believe that Macs are immune to the evils of the Internet. The bad guys are depending on you believing it too, it makes their job of installing malware on your Mac that much easier. Intego knows their tricks and knows how to stop malware before it wreaks havoc on your Mac and your files. Protect your Mac with Virus Barrier: award-winning Mac Antivirus software from Intego.
Automatic scans and updates keep you covered 24/7
Virus Barrier X8 scans files whenever they’re accessed and automatically checks for the latest updates to make sure you’re protected against the newest threats. You can concentrate on creating while your Mac antivirus software does the protecting.
Protection against both Mac and PC malware
You don’t want to pass along infected files to your PC-wielding buddies do you? Intego VirusBarrier X8 not only protects you from existing Mac threats, it detects all known 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 Mac antivirus software from the ground up for Mac OS X – and we’ve been doing it that way since we started in 1997. Why trust your digital world to a company that crams Mac protection and extra junk onto an existing PC platform?
Our new interface keeps it simple
Intego Virus Barrier X8 has been completely redesigned to ensure that Mac owners of all abilities can set it up and configure it to provide immediate protection. This means less time tinkering with settings and more time on your favorite websites and apps.
Use a PC? We’ll protect that too.
Lots of households have both Windows-based PCs and Macs. To ensure that both have complete protection, we’ve partnered with Panda to provide a top-notch Windows product as well. No matter what computer you’re on, we’ve got you covered.
Don’t let your iPhone or iPad cause trouble
Your iOS devices are an open doorway to transmitting infected files and malware onto your Mac and Windows systems. Intego Virus Barrier X8 scans iOS devices whenever they’re plugged into your computer to make sure that no infected files that you received via email will pass onto your Mac or Windows machines.
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 their fingertips, it also puts them just one click away from inappropriate websites and dangerous people. ContentBarrier allows you to create the proper boundaries for any child from toddler to teen. Let them use the web as a portal to the world without the fear that it’ll become Pandora’s Box.
Lock the door on objectionable sites
Don’t want your kids taking a gander at gambling sites or exposed to pornography? We don’t blame you. Intego ContentBarrier can block out entire categories of Internet sites 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.
Safe surfing 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. Instead of having your older son scowl at you for treating him like a “baby” for setting the same restrictions as his little sister, you can assign each of them a unique profile. That way, your teenager can get online to do homework and play games while your youngest can print a coloring sheet or watch her favorite cartoon.
Set limits on Internet time
Need to open up computer time so your kids can do their homework or shut off access because it’s time for dinner? Want to 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 accordingly.
Control settings from afar
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 and you can enjoy your night out.
Keep an eye on sites they visit
Want to know exactly where your children are going? You can configure Intego ContentBarrier to record keystrokes or take screenshots of active applications. It’s just another way to make sure your kids haven’t stumbled across content they shouldn’t be looking at.
Monitor chats and block strangers
Intego ContentBarrier can monitor Internet chat sessions to make sure your child isn’t having an inappropriate conversation with a stranger. Once any objectionable terminology has been used, the chat session can be shut down and you’ll be notified so you can educate your children about being safe and smart online.
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.
