Intego released the latest version of its flagship product, the personal firewall NetBarrier X4. This new version of Intego NetBarrier is available immediately for Macintosh OS X version 10.4. Intego is presenting and selling NetBarrier X4 at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, from Jan. 10-13, at booth #2417.
NetBarrier X4 provides personal firewall, antivandal, Internet filter and network monitoring tools. The company states that the new version includes 30 new features, among them are more specific firewall rules, simpler rule creation using a Services Library palette, and rules that operate only during specified time periods.
NetBarrier X4’s Antivandal offers greater control over sensitivity for different types of attacks, and more flexibility in using the Stop List and Trusted Group. The program’s anti-spyware feature lets users allow or block network access by application and by port, and its Internet filters have been improved and refined. In addition, NetBarrier X4 now finds available AirPort (WiFI) networks, and several Dashboard widgets leverage this Mac OS X Tiger feature to provide easily accessible information, such as network traffic data.
Intego NetBarrier X4 requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher. Certain software features are only available with Mac OS X 10.4. Pricing is set at $70, or $45 for an upgrade. Customers who purchased NetBarrier X4 on or after Nov. 25, 2005 are eligible for a free upgrade through April 10, 2006.
