Software Protects Mac Computers from Malicious Attacks

Included in the new 2013 version of Intego's Internet Security Premium security software suite is an Identity Scrubber option that searchers for sensitive information and protects it or deletes at the command of users.

Intego offers three levels of its Apple security software that protects OSX-based computers, as well as PCs from malware, viruses and network attacks.

There’s always been an aura that’s accompanied the ownership of Apple’s computer products. Mac owners for years not only believed that their machines were better engineered and more foolproof, but they were also less susceptible to attacks from hackers, malware and other threats.

Today with Mac’s computer products as popular as they have ever been, it can no longer be said that Apple computers aren’t the target of hackers. Helping to not only protect Mac users, but also PC users, Intego‘s new Mac Internet Security Premium 2013 software bundle combines three of the company’s top products to protect a variety of computer users from the problem of hackers, malware and network attacks.

Intego says the software scans and updates files 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week and through its partnership with Panda it also provides protection to PCs. Intego’s solution is designed to protect Macs and PCs on a network, and the company points out that users that employ iOS devices can also protect those products. Intego explains that once an iOS device is connected to a computer running its protection software, it will also scan those devices to ensure that infected files won’t be passed on to a computer or network via products like an iPhone or iPad.

The software can be purchased in several levels at a variety of price points and users can also purchase versions that protect a single or multiple computers. Intego says the software works with Mac OS x 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, and its minimum hardware requirements include Macs running Intel Core 2 Duo processors with 1.5GBs of available hardware space. Intego adds the software requires an Internet connection to run its NetUpdate service updates.
