Have been a fan for longer than I care to admit. I used and loved NetBarrier under Mac OS 9. The ultimate firewall with passive countermeasures.

VirusBarrier forced the virus software and instituted an expiration on your firewall unless more...

A nice and easy-to-use security software with an efficient anti-virus and a more-than-decent firewall. However, it would be nice to determine new firewall rules for applications that are not listed in the app's firewall list but exists in the Applications folder.

After several years of using Intego VirusBarrier X6, X7 & X8 I switch to Kaspersky. The first scan finds two trojan horses which was undiscovered by Intego. Of course they were not critical for Mac users, but I want to be sure, that I do not send malware to my business partners. In this case Intego failed!

Just upgraded to X8 from 2013 version - love the new interface! I trust Intego more than the others because they have the best malware detection rate and focus on building great software specifically for Mac.

Would like to see these features return:

- Ad blocking
- Anti-vandal
- more bells and whistles

But in terms of anti-virus and firewall, Intego is the best for Macs. Hands down.

Intego products seem to work extremely well for FeelaWAY.
They are all given 5 stars .. whereas any alternatives are criticized and marked down. Interesting that.

Why not some advanced mode maintained with ALL the granular settings from good old x6 version ?

In Netbarrier and Virusbarrier they have added some advanced settings back in version 10.8.1 but I have bad feeling about a company making this kind of "roadmaps"

I had fine/detailed control in version x6 ...

Why did I uninstall Internet Security 2013 10.7.3

I was a happy user of NetBarrier X5 and as a result, I decided to purchase the next version, VirusBarrier X6. However, soon after my purchase, Intego launched Internet Security 2013, and I was qualified to upgrade to the latest version believing that I would get all the features of the previous versions plus new features or at least the improved version of its firewall, NetBarrier.

I downloaded Internet Security 2013 and went through the installation process. I selected “Home” among other options “Work” and “Public” to set up NetBarrier 2013 on my new MacBook Air with Mountain Lion as the operating system. The first thing that disappointed me was the boring Interface, so plain that I felt I hadn’t actually installed anything. To be on the positive side, I tried to ignore the visual part of the software and let it run to see how it would act as a security application.

To my surprise, NetBarrier 2013 part of the Internet Security 2013, didn’t show any warnings or pop-ups whenever an application needed to use my network. The pervious version, NetBarrier X5 always displayed a warning and asked me if I want to allow or block the connection. I continued using NetBarrier 2103 for a week, no warnings, no pop-ups. I decided to change my initial setting from “Home” to “Work’” and that’s when the NetBarrier became active and popped up some warnings, which I used to see while using NetBarrier X5.

However the new version is quite buggy and doesn’t provide the same level of protection, which I used to get from NetBarrier X5.

Here are some of the problems with the new version, NetBarrier 2013.

1. The interface of the new version is quite plain and boring. It doesn’t offer much visually and less interactive than the previous versions. Would you buy a car just for its engine? Wouldn’t you consider its shape, color, interior and exterior design? What an iPhone or an iPad would be without their beautiful and colorful application icons and interfaces?

2. NetBarrier 2103 doesn’t provide much security if you select “Home” as your initial setup.
3. When trying to block a connection(s) to specific domains, the “Once” button didn’t work on Mountain Lion, very frustrating, so I couldn’t block the connection.

4. NetBarrier Monitor window is too big and not resizable, so I couldn't leave it on to monitor my network activity.

5. On the configuration tab, you only see the names of your applications not their icons. It puts a lot of strain on your eyes while trying to configure each connection. I accidentally allowed some connections instead of blocking them, and I realized it after a week. I want to see the application Icons on the left side of the configuration tab like the previous version of NetBarrier, and I want to be able to drag an application icon to the configuration tab with the choice of “Allow”, “Block” or “Ask”.

6. I couldn’t delete any rules on the configuration tab, very annoying!

7. Some of the best and critical features of NetBarrier are not existing in the new version:

- No Data Vault where you can protect your credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and your passwords. Peace of mind!
- No Ad Banner Filter
- No Cookie Filter
- No Information Hiding Option, etc.

I also agree with other reviewers: Frankhh24, Cerniuk. Raven., Snaporaz, Zx81, and I believe that the new version doesn’t offer much, therefore I decided to uninstall Internet Security 2103 and reinstall the previous version VirusBarrier X6 and will keep using it until my subscription expires. I have already started looking for other options.

I loved to use Netbarrier and Virusbarrier until version x6. Lastly Intego split up back Virusbarrier into Virusbarrier and Netbarrier and called the package Internet Security 2013. With this Intego radically cut back the versatility and the attributes that were so important: fine tuning and manual configuration.
Now especially Netbarrier is not more than a tool for keeping things simple. But the life (and the internet) is by far not as simple. To make things worse both Virusbarrier and Netbarrier need a lot of memory and cpu-load.
Conclusion: I am now looking for alternatives.
