Intego Presents Updated, Enhanced VirusBarrier for iOS App

Security company Intego announced that it updated its malware scanner for the iPhone and iPad, VirusBarrier for iOS.

VirusBarrier for iOS, which is based on the award-winning antimalware tool VirusBarrier X6, is a security app that scans files with the aim of detecting spyware, Trojans, adware, hacker tools, dialers, keyloggers, and other security threats that could impact systems powered by Mac OS X, Windows or Unix. It can scan files stored on your iOS device, files received via email or attached to emails, and files accessed from remote locations like FTP shares, WebDAV or Dropbox. The scan will commence when you launch it (scheduled or automatic scans are not supported; you can only run on-demand scans) and it will run in the background, so as to not disturb you.


“Your iOS device is susceptible to acting as a gateway for malware contained in file attachments to infect other computers or laptops you own, causing some major headaches as you scramble to rid your machine of it. Intego VirusBarrier iOS offers on-demand scanning for your iPad or iPhone so you can catch these malicious files and get rid of them before they screw up your computer,” commented Intego’s Rebecca Kelley.

People keeping track of these things will remember that Intego rolled out VirusBarrier for iOS back in July 2011. Earlier this week the company that specializes in providing security solutions for Mac announced that it rolled out an updated version of VirusBarrier for iOS, version that comes with a new and enhanced UI that’s a lot easier to use.

It seems that a lot of people complained that VirusBarrier for iOS has a clunky, difficult to use interface. Intego took heed to the feedback it received and modified the user interface. The latest version of the app comes with a brand-new clean design that makes it easy to access all the functionality VirusBarrier for iOS has to offer.

Users also complained that VirusBarrier for iOS is subscription-based. This has changed as well – you can now get the app for a low, one-time price of 99 cents.
