Intego NetBarrier X4
today announced the latest version of its flagship product, NetBarrier X4. The new version of the personal firewall software is optimized for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, offering both antivandal and internet filters. Version 4 features an updated interface, improved firewall protection and optimization, better UDP port restrictions, support for different security policies for each type of attack, new stop-lists and trusted groups, per-port filtering for each application (anti-spyware), new monitoring options for a range of ports, and more. It also includes both Intego and NetBarrier widgets for Tiger's Dashboard. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later with some features only available under Tiger. The software is expected to ship in early January 2006 for $70 with upgrades priced at $45.
