in Software (E)

[] Austin, Texas - Intego, the Mac security specialist, today released VirusBarrier Plus, a new Mac antivirus and anti-malware program. Sold exclusively through the Mac App Store, VirusBarrier Plus offers protection from both Mac and Windows malware, as well as other types of malware, malicious scripts, and more. And VirusBarrier Plus is available at a special launch price of only $7.99 for a two-week introductory period.

VirusBarrier Plus detects Mac and Windows malware, so Mac users are protected, and so they don't pass on infected files to friends and colleagues using Windows or other operating systems. It also protects against PDF malware, Flash malware, Linux malware, keyloggers, hacker tools, and malicious scripts (PHP, Perl, Javascript, shell scripts and more). VirusBarrier Plus also lets advanced users run malware scans from the command line, using the Mac OS X Terminal application, to scan all the files on their Macs.

VirusBarrier Plus also offers frequent, free malware definition updates: new malware definitions are provided at least twice a week, and users can check for updates to malware definitions simply by clicking a button.

Mac users wanting a total security package that also includes Intego's powerful two-way firewall, Antivandal and full protection from network attacks should consider VirusBarrier X6, which is the comprehensive solution that keeps Macs safe from the dangers of the Internet.
