[prMac.com] Austin, TX - September 26, 2007 – Intego, the Macintosh security specialist, today announced that its VirusBarrier X4 Dual Protection and Internet Security Barrier Antispam Edition Dual Protection suites now include BitDefender's latest 2008 versions of their security software. These security suites, part of Intego's Dual Protection (DP) product line, help Mac users protect both Mac OS X and their Windows installation. Intego's Dual Protection product line features Intego's awardwinning software together with BitDefender's top-rated programs to provide Mac users with protection for both operating systems.

When Windows is run in Apple's Boot Camp, Parallels Desktop or VMWare's Fusion, it requires Windows-specific protection. Intego's Dual Protection product line provides security for both Mac OS X and Windows, ensuring that Mac users running Windows will have total protection for both operating systems.

The Intego Dual Protection product line includes the following products: * Intego VirusBarrier X4 DP protects both Mac OS X and Windows from all known viruses. * Intego Internet Security Barrier X4 Antispam Edition DP keeps Mac OS X and Windows safe from viruses, hackers, vandals, spyware, spam and phishing.

The 2008 versions of BitDefender software include the following new features: * BitDefender Antivirus 2008 includes a newly integrated Gamer Mode feature, a collection of protection settings intended to provide a safe gaming experience while minimizing system load, and Web Anti-Phishing capabilities, which protect against phishing attacks by filtering all accessed web pages for fraud attempts. * BitDefender Internet Security 2008 includes Wi-Fi wireless protection that alerts users to unauthorized access to their Wi-Fi network, and new adaptive engines which offer greater protection by speeding response times to new spamming techniques.

BitDefender is a leading global provider of security solutions that satisfy the protection requirements of today's computing environment. BitDefender Antivirus was voted "Best Buy" by PC World in 2006. The company offers one of the industry's fastest and most effective lines of security software, setting new standards for threat prevention, timely detection and mitigation.
