Article by George Norman
On 12 Jan 2011
Intego, company that specializes in providing security solutions for Mac, has recently announced that its VirusBarrier X6 security software solution that properly protects Macs from all sorts of security threats, has been updated to version 10.6.11. I put 11 in bold for three reasons. Number one, this is the first VirusBarrier X6 update for 2011; number two, this update comes with a total of 11 new features; and number three, it was released yesterday, on the 11th of January.

“Intego has 11 on the brain. The confluence of 11s in version number, year and day has prompted the company to announce the release of VirusBarrier X6 10.6.11, a major free update to its acclaimed anti-malware and network protection tool. In addition to improving performance and reliability, VirusBarrier X6 adds 11+ new key features, offering enhanced memory management, improved scanning, and detection of additional types of attacks,” announced Intego yesterday.

Here are the 11 new features VirusBarrier X6 v. 10.6.11 brings to the table:
1. Mini Scanner
VirusBarrier X6 comes with a new mini scanner that looks like this.

When it’s inactive, or when it’s actively performing a scan, the Mini Scanner is green. When it detects malware, it turns red. Via the Mini Scanner the user has easy access to VirusBarrier X6’s Orb.

2. Scan Progress
The scan progress is displayed in the dock icon.

3. Network Traffic
Network traffic can now be viewed in the menu bar.

4. Memory Scanning

The memory is scanned to find any traces of exploit code.

5. Less Memory Usage
The real-time scanner of VirusBarrier X6 uses less memory

6. SSH Attacks
SSH attacks are now detected and blocked.

7. Apple TV
Apple TV is automatically added to VirusBarrier X6’s list of Trusted Addresses

8. Improved proactive detection of malware

VirusBarrier X6 offers improved proactive detection of malware because Intego made major improvements to VirusBarrier X6’s behavioral analysis.

9. No User Intervention
No user intervention is required when NetUpdate installs threat filters in the background.

10. File and Folder Analysis
Files and folders can be sent to Intego for analysis via VirusBarrier X6’s contextual menu.

11. Interface Elements

Full keyboard access is available for all interface elements
