Apps get simplified interfaces
Intego has released VirusBarrier X8 and NetBarrier X8, updates of its Mac security apps. Both titles have been revised with new, streamlined interfaces. VirusBarrier specifically also has a new low-priority scanning mode, designed to ease the processing burden on a Mac.
NetBarrier has been given a pair of unique improvements. These include better rule functions, for easier configuration, and a set of new firewall and app monitoring options.
Intego is selling the apps individually for prices starting at $30 and $18, respectively, and as part of bundles; the Mac Internet Security bundle for instance begins at $40. Exact costs depend on whether a person chooses one- or two-year coverage, and the number of computers a person needs to protect.
