DoorStop X 1.0 ships

Open Door Networks today began shipping , its firewall system utility for Mac OS X 10.3 and later. Previously available as a public beta release, DoorStop X provides Internet security features beyond those of the firewall built into Mac OS X: "To secure their machines, Mac users simply download DoorStop X and double-click the application. A built-in setup assistant walks the user through the basics of configuring and activating firewall protection." The company says that by default, the setup assistant blocks and logs all service-level access attempts to the user's machine. Users can also allow or deny service-by-service access from specific machines, Internet address ranges, or all of a user's home network; it also offers default settings for any service not specifically configured by the user, full logging of allowed and/or denied access attempts, and optional blocking and logging of low-level "UDP" and other access attempts. A free trial of the $40 (introductory pricing) software is available.
