Features new interface, rules editor
Intelus, makers of MacVide, have updated their network firewall application ProteMac NetMine to v2, bringing with it an all-new interface and new firewall rules editor as well as real-time connection requests. The two-way firewall protects Macs from malicious attacks or software from both internal and external network sources, providing protection from hackers, keyloggers, malware and unauthorized program use.
The auto-learning and easy configuration modes allows the option of starting with typical levels of security for program activity and monitored connections, saving users from having to manually add every program they might have that could access the internet. Users can add or remove applications from monitoring manually as they prefer, resulting in an easy custom configuration.
ProteMac NetMine guards against sophisticating hacking techniques designed to compromise data, and offers Host Protection against zero-day attacks and unauthorized activity, blocking botnets, rootkits or inadvertent data exposure.
The program provides detailed reports of incoming and outgoing traffic across networks, prevents ping floods and port scans, and features a visual Network Monitor for real-time analysis of network activity.
ProteMac NetMine requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, is a Universal Binary and available now for $30. A free trial version is available.
