Mac Growth in the Enterprise Market

Beyond Apple's strong presence in the education, publishing and design sectors, Macs are becoming increasingly popular in other business environments. But Macs, like all networked computers, are at risk from viruses and malware, and require reliable protection. Intego's VirusBarrier X4 (endpoint), VirusBarrier Server, and VirusBarrier Mail Gateway, provide full protection from all known viruses. And administrators can easily use Remote Management Console to manage Intego software on any number of Macs on a network.

Intego Solutions Availability Intego VirusBarrier X4, VirusBarrier Server, VirusBarrier Mail Gateway and Remote Management Console are available now in North America from Trend Micro and distributors/reseller partners, and will roll out in other regions during the third quarter of this year.
