Open Door Networks security products support Apple's Snow Leopard

August 30, 2009 in Mac OSX (F)

[] Ashland, OR - Open Door Networks Inc. today announced that its current line of DoorStop X security products is fully compatible with Apple's new Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) operating system, shipping today. The products have been qualified with the "Golden Master" release of Snow Leopard, and their associated blog details Snow Leopard-specific security issues. The company also announced plans for Snow Leopard-specific versions of the products in the October timeframe.

The flagship of Open Door's security line is the DoorStop X Security Suite. The Suite is a comprehensive, integrated approach to protecting Macs on the Internet. It includes the DoorStop X Firewall, Who's There? Firewall Advisor, "Internet Security for Your Macintosh" eBook and isfym blog. The products are designed to act together in the Suite, providing users with both the tools and the information they need to secure their Macs on the Internet.

The current version of the products, 2.2, was designed to help users address the wealth of new Internet features that Apple added to Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5), the previous version of Mac OS X. The 2.2 products continue to work well on Snow Leopard, which Apple is positioning as "fine tuning" of Leopard. In the same way, Open Door plans to ship "fine tuned" versions 2.3 of the products in the October timeframe. These products will include specific information and advice about Snow Leopard Internet services and issues, as well as a number of general enhancements that work on both Leopard and Snow Leopard.

Until the 2.3 product line is available, the isfym security blog will provide details of Snow Leopard-specific Internet security features and evolving issues. The blog is directly searchable from current Suite components.

Anyone purchasing an Open Door security product from today on is eligible for a free upgrade to version 2.3 of that product when available. Free 30-day evaluation versions of the current products are available from Open Door's Web site.
