Macs Need Antivirus Protection Software, Just Like Any Other Computer

Mac users have been misled by the common myth that “Macs can’t get viruses,” and that antivirus software is unnecessary. The reality is all machines are vulnerable, and devious cyber-criminals use a variety of malware that threatens Macintosh computers. Worse yet, they’re not just targeting Macs—they’re after your sensitive personal information and your money. You can protect your Mac and your precious data with Intego VirusBarrier, the award-winning Mac antivirus software.

Real-Time Antivirus with Automatic Scans Keep You Covered 24/7

Intego VirusBarrier provides real-time antivirus protection for Macs, and scans files whenever they’re accessed to keep your Mac free of malware. Our Mac antivirus software automatically checks for the latest updates to make sure you’re protected against the newest threats.

Antivirus protection against both Mac and PC malware

Intego VirusBarrier not only protects you from existing Mac threats, it detects PC-based malware so you don’t spread infected files to friends, family, or work colleagues.

We know Macs. Our competitors don't.

We build our antivirus software from the ground up for macOS and Mac OS X—and we’ve been doing it that way since we started in 1997. Our award-winning, highly trusted security products are the optimum solutions for protecting, cleaning, and organizing Macs.

Use a PC? We’ll protect that too.

Lots of households have both Windows-based PCs and Macs. To ensure that both have complete antivirus protection, select our Dual Protection option and get Windows coverage as well.

Our new interface keeps it simple

As Mac lovers, we prefer software of great simplicity. Mac applications should be effective, straightforward and unobtrusive, and that’s exactly how we designed all of our security software to operate—the way Macs are designed.

Antivirus protection for iPhone and iPad

Intego VirusBarrier scans and detects malicious files received via email on your iOS devices whenever they’re plugged into your computer, and prevents your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch from passing malware to other computers.

NetBarrier X9

Mac network protection. Protecting your Mac from unauthorized access.

Intelligent Firewall for Home and Hotspot Network Protection

Connected to the Internet, your Mac is no more immune to intrusion than the next computer. To the bad guys, it’s just an IP Address and open ports, and accessing your personal information via these cyber-criminal gateways is easier than you want to know. Intego NetBarrier blocks unsolicited visitors in their tracks, keeping the bad guys out of your Mac.

Location-aware firewall protects your Mac on the go!

Whether you’re at work, traveling to conferences or in a cafe, Intego NetBarrier will automatically switch to the appropriate firewall setting for the best level of protection.

Identify and block untrusted devices

Intego NetBarrier identifies various devices that are trying to access your Mac and lets you decide what’s allowed in and what gets turned away—providing peace of mind when sharing files with others.

Settings as easy as 1-2-3

Just because Intego NetBarrier provides sophisticated firewall protection for Mac doesn’t mean network settings should be confusing and complicated. With simplicity in mind, the intuitive firewall makes it easy for you to adjust settings to the best level of protection.

Two-way Mac firewall watches your network connections

Intego NetBarrier is a two-way firewall that provides anti-spyware measures to protect outgoing data sent from your Mac, and also actively monitors applications using your network and keeps you informed when a new connection is opened—letting you block or allow attempts to access your Mac

Intuitive and easy to configure firewall

Easy to use and simple to configure, you can customize Intego NetBarrier rules settings to automatically set protection levels perfect for public or private networks. Our Mac firewall has you covered with the best level of protection!

Block connections to specific domains

Third party applications can be very useful, but many collect information about you and your business while you use it. Intego NetBarrier lets you block applications from communicating with specific Internet domains while keeping the functionality you want.
