[prMac.com] Miami, Florida - In celebration of the recent release of the new macOS Sierra operating system, ProtectStar today is very pleased to announce a special, one-week only 30% discount on Camera Guard Professional for Mac 2016. The ingenious macOS security solution protects any Mac's iSight camera, webcam, and microphone from being accessed by hackers, spyware or malware. With just a few clicks of the mouse, Camera Guard Professional stays alert for, and completely blocks, any applications or processes that attempt to access the camera or microphone of any Mac computer.
To celebrate the release of macOS Sierra, ProtectStar has announced a special one-week only 30% discount off of the normal $29.90 (USD) price of Camera Guard Professional 2016, making it just $20.93 for one week only. When ordering the app from the ProtectStar website, users merely need to enter the code: "macos-sierra" at checkout to receive the 30% discount.
Illegal monitoring of webcams and microphones on computers used for both personal and business use is on the rise, and shows no signs of slowing down. Until recently, the only response Mac users had was to place a piece of tape over the webcam and microphone of the computer, which is at best, an inelegant solution.
"Computer users no longer have to resort to pieces of black electrical tape to protect their privacy," says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. "With just a few clicks, Camera Guard Professional quickly and efficiently blocks outside access to the Mac's camera and microphone, ensuring users are protected from prying eyes. Plus, the one-week-only 30% discount makes it more economical and convenient than ever to protect your family's privacy."
With the release of macOS Sierra, Apple has brought their virtual voice-based assistant to the desktop, again increasing the possibility that Mac users could possibly be listened in on via their computers. Camera Guard Professional can also prevent Siri from using a Mac's mic, once again enhancing Mac users' security.

Camera Guard Professional offers an added layer of protection for Mac users via its Personal Identification Number (PIN) system, which allows anyone to create a four-digit PIN to protect the customized security settings they create for their Mac. Once a PIN has been created and entered, any changes to the settings of the app require the entry of the PIN, making it impossible for rogue users or applications to change the level of protection offered by Camera Guard.
The app's exclusive Deep Detective feature offers intelligent protection against all attempted accesses to a protected machine. Deep Detective actively protects the system from hackers, spyware and trojans by monitoring any attempted access to a Mac's camera or microphone, and alerts users to any attacks, both known and unknown, using its exclusive modern heuristic methods.
Camera Guard Professional works well alongside any anti-virus or firewall solutions users may already have in place, making it an ideal addition to any Mac user's security arsenal. The app offers a fast and elegant protection solution, and is designed to make a minimal impact on any Mac's system resources, using only a small amount of available processor, memory and disk resources.
