Intego releases updates

Intego has released new versions of VirusBarrier Server 2 and VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 2, along with ContentBarrier X5. Virus Barrier 2 and Virus Barrier Mail Gateway add improved scanning and bug fixes. Server 2 scans every file that is copied to the Mac OS X server it protects, and scans all files that are launched on the server. If it finds a virus, it quarantines the file or files, and sends logs to administrators alerting them of the activity. VirusBarrier Server 2 can also be set to run scheduled scans of local and network volumes. It requires Mac OS X (Server) 10.4 or higher and is now available starting at $300.

VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 2 protects e-mail that is sent or received via the Mac OS X Server's built-in e-mail server. The software automatically scans all e-mail messages that pass through the server, checks e-mail for infected attachments and if viruses are found, quarantines the e-mail and sends logs of the activity to administrators. It also requires Mac OS X Server 10.4 or higher running a built-in e-mail server. Prices start at $500.

ContentBarrier X5 protects children from offensive or unwanted content, and prevents them from accessing inappropriate Internet sites. Version X5 improves the user interface and features a new web administration tool that lets parents keep an eye on what children are doing from any computer with an Internet connection. ContentBarrier protects children from adult web sites, predatory chats, suggestive e-mail and more. Parents can block categories of content or specific applications or protocols such as peer-to-peer, instant messaging, e-mail, games, streaming audio and video. Parents can set up schedules with time limits so their children can only access the Internet at specific times.

In addition, ContentBarrier X5 records logs of all users' Internet activity, and can send logs and notifications by e-mail to parents or administrators. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is now available for $50 (with multi-seat licenses offered at a discount).
