The days of Mac users not having to worry about Viruses, Trojans and Malware are over. Hackers are finding new ways to get users infected so you are no longer safe if you don’t have some type of protection for your Mac. This is where Intego VirusBarrier X6 comes in and provides you with the protection you need to stay ahead of hackers.

Virus Barrier X6

Intego VirusBarrier X6 offers protection from viruses, malware, Trojan horses, and worms. VirusBarrier X6 also comes with anti-spyware, anti-phishing and even a two-way firewall to provide Mac users with the ultimate protection from hackers. It’s the only antivirus for Mac that will provide solid protection against network threats.


  • Blocks all viruses, Trojan horses, worms and malware
  • Blocks and stop hackers from sophisticated attacks
  • Anti-spyware features Protects your privacy by blocking applications that calls home
  • Anti-phishing features warns you about attack and malicious websites
  • Two-way firewall stops network attacks by blocking access to your Mac
  • NetUpdate automatically updates your software to keep it up to date.

Intego VirusBarrier X6 offers an Innovative interface which will display information about how the software is running and will provide real-time feedback on what is going on. You can launch scans, monitor network, and change settings easily.

Malware & Spyware Protection

VirusBarrier X6 will stop all known Mac malware and protects your Mac from them. Once VirusBarrier spots infected files, it will instantly notify you. From there, you can either repair or quarantine the file so your Mac remains safe and uninfected.

Spyware are extremely annoying, but not with Virus Barrier X6. Only trusted applications are allowed to connect to the internet. This prevents unknown applications to phone home to steal your personal information. Anti-spyware features will prevent software from secretly trying to connect to remote servers. This is one of my favorite features as spywares can steal your personal information such as credit cards.


VirusBarrier X6 comes with a powerful two-way firewall which will provide you with protection from all types of intrusions and web threats which can include hackers and vandals. Firewalls are a must have if you are on the internet.


Hackers are always coming up with new malware, spyware and viruses so you have to stay a step ahead of them with updates from the Intego team. NetUpdate keeps your VirusBarrier software up to date automatically or manually (your choice).

The Intego Malware research team are working 24/7 to spot new malware to prevent them from your Mac. Once found, they will push the update to NetUpdate which will then update your VirusBarrier Anti-Virus application to detect new malware so you can stay a step a head of hackers.
