The latest issue of MacFormat Magazine, the UK’s leading Mac publication, has a no-holds-barred test of six Mac antivirus programs, and guess who comes up the winner? Intego VirusBarrier X5! The editors tested six aspects of a half-dozen Mac virus protection programs (such as ease of installation, ease of use, level of protection, ease of updating), and came up with a clear winner. As MacFormat says, “Intego’s VirusBarrier is the one to go for if you want excellent virus protection in a Mac-friendly package.” They summed up their review saying, about VirusBarrier, “It’s easy to update, it’s Mac-friendly and it runs unobtrusively. VirusBarrier is a great all-around system protector.”
Unfortunately, MacFormat doesn’t put its articles online, so we can’t link to it for you to read the entire test. If you’re in the UK, pick up the magazine, which coincidently includes a demo version of VirusBarrier X5 on its included DVD. But if it does come online in the future, rest assured that we’ll let you know.
