Power On has just released an update to On Guard for Mac, their cross-platform security and access management product. Version 3.3.5 improves On Guard’s compatibility with Mac OS version 7 through 9.1 (but not Mac OS X) by addressing a situation where, in certain cases, the boot process could be interrupted. It also improves security by further limiting access to control panels.
“On Guard is ideal for users who must share a computer, such as users in school settings,” Bob Leeds, Power On VP of public relations, told MacCentral. “Even Kinko’s bought On Guard to protect their Macs.”
On Guard provides anti-tampering security that protects computer files and folders from unauthorized access or unwanted changes. It permits a single computer to be customized for multiple users so that each user’s access is limited to those files and folders that are needed for that user to perform specific functions. Nonessential areas may be totally eliminated from access.
On Guard has a suggested retail price of US $69.95. Educational pricing and site licenses are also available. The 3.3.5 update is free to all registered owners of On Guard version 3 or later and may be
downloaded from the Power On Web site.
