Only VirusBarrier X6 provides comprehensive protection from malware and network threats. VirusBarrier X6 is the only antivirus program for Mac that includes full anti-malware protection together with firewall, network protection, anti-phishing, anti-spyware features and more.
As malware changes, protection needs to be reinforced While viruses, Trojan horses, worms and other forms of malware are a constant threat to computers of all kinds, cyber-criminals are turning to new techniques to infect and control your Mac. These new threats come silently, with little warning, over the Internet: in many cases, simply visiting a booby-trapped web page can compromise your Mac. Focusing on malware or network attacks alone is no longer sufficient to protect Macs from the dangers of the Internet.
Comprehensive protection with VirusBarrier X6 VirusBarrier X6, the latest version of Intego's network and malware security program, includes more than 100 new features. With multiple threat-detection techniques, improved methods of detection, combined detection protocols, proactive behavioral analysis, and a full range of defensive functions, VirusBarrier X6 protects Macs from all known network-based threats, as well as all known malware.

New features of VirusBarrier X6
VirusBarrier X6 adds a number of new features that provide hardened security and help protect against the latest threats:
Dynamic Code Monitoring: Integos new technology that detects suspicious actions carried out by applications that may be malicious, and detects malware by examining its code as it acts in real-time.
Phishing protection: you and your Mac are protected from phishing web sites that try to trick you into entering personal information, such as a credit card number or a password, on a site that looks exactly like a valid web site.
New types of malware detected: VirusBarrier X6 detects a wide range of new types of malware, such as scareware (software that tries to trick you into thinking youre Mac is infected, in order to get you to pay for software), spyware (including commercial software used as keyloggers or monitoring tools), hacking tools, dialers (software that initiates phone calls to premium-rate phone numbers), proof-of-concept malware (software designed to show how to exploit a vulnerability, which is not circulating “in the wild”), and more.
Fine-tuned scanning and security policies: choose from a number of detailed options to determine exactly what is scanned and when, and the type of threats that VirusBarrier X6 scans for. There are also basic settings for users who dont need such detailed options.
Performance control: users can choose how much CPU time VirusBarrier X6 uses to scan different disks, and choose a level of CPU time to be allocated to background scans, in order to reduce CPU and disk usage.
AppleScript integration: users can launch scans and obtain scan results using AppleScript.
