Intego, the Macintosh security specialist, has announced the release of its flagship product, the personal firewall NetBarrier X4. This new version of Intego NetBarrier is available immediately for Macintosh OS X version 10.4 Tiger.
NetBarrier X4 is the acclaimed personal firewall, internet filter and network monitoring tool for Macintosh that is fully compatible with Mac OS X. NetBarrier X4 incorporates a wide range of new features and enhancements, such as Dashboard widgets, all in an easy-to-use package.
Intego NetBarrier X4 continues to provide user-friendly and powerful firewall features, and adds new functions to make the program even more secure and more customizable. Among the program’s new features are more specific firewall rules, simpler rule creation using a Services Library palette, and rules that operate only during specified time periods.
NetBarrier X4’s Anti-vandal offers greater control over sensitivity for different types of attacks, and more flexibility in using the Stop List and Trusted Group. The program’s anti-spyware feature lets users allow or block network access by application and by port, and its Internet filters have been improved and refined. In addition, NetBarrier X4 now finds available wireless networks, and several Dashboard Widgets leverage this Mac OS X Tiger feature to provide easily accessible information, such as network traffic data.
“Intego NetBarrier X4 includes dozens of new features that our customers will be eager to implement,” said Laurent Marteau, CEO of Intego. “The program enhances its firewall features, provides iron-clad antivandal and anti-spyware functions, and improves its network monitoring tools. NetBarrier X4 will continue to be, like its previous versions, the best personal firewall for the Mac.”
