How to protect my Mac with Intego VirusBarrier X6, the best mac antivirus ?

An Innovative Interface

The VirusBarrier X6 overview screen displays information about how the program is running and provides real-time feedback on its activities. You can easily launch scans, monitor network throughput, and change settings for VirusBarrier X6's many features.

Anti-spyware Protection

Allow only trusted applications to connect to the Internet, and block all others to ensure your privacy. Anti-spyware prevents software from connecting secretly to remote servers, and stops applications from phoning home.

Complete Malware Protection

VirusBarrier X6 stops all known Mac malware. When the program spots infected files, it instantly alerts you, and can repair or quarantine them so your Mac remains safe. VirusBarrier X6 also blocks Windows malware, so you don’t pass infected files on to your friends and colleagues.

A Powerful Two-Way Firewall

VirusBarrier X6 protects your Mac from more than just malware. The two-way firewall, together with the Antivandal, provides thorough protection from all types of intrusions and web threats – including hackers and vandals.

Keep Up-to-Date with NetUpdate

Hackers and malware writers work fast - really fast. That's why the Intego Malware Research Team works 24/7 to spot new malware as soon as it starts circulating. Once detected, they update malware definitions right away and make the new malware filters available through NetUpdate.

NetUpdate is included with all Intego programs, and can check for updates to your Intego software automatically, or manually, whenever you choose. For VirusBarrier X6 and VirusBarrier Server 3, these updates also include malware definitions. For ContentBarrier, updates include additions to the program’s URL database.

With Intego, your protection is always up-to-date.
