VirusBarrier X9 overview

VirusBarrier X9 is vital because malware and viruses can cost your business or organization precious time and money. As attacks grow more common, it's more important than ever to make sure your company's valuable information is protected. Once malware infiltrates even one computer, it can quickly spread throughout your entire network. Install Intego VirusBarrier X9 on all your work machines to ensure that they're protected against the latest threats.

  • Keeps your computer free of malware such as Mac viruses, Windows viruses, Unix viruses, Microsoft Word and Excel macro viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, adware, hacking tools, dialers, keyloggers, and scareware (fake security programs)
  • Detects Windows malware to prevent your Mac from acting as a carrier
  • Improved anti-phishing settings to protect your privacy
  • On-demand malware scans, including full scans for maximum coverage of your entire Mac as well as quick scans for day-to-day use
  • Scheduled scans
  • 24/7 real-time protection that watches all file activity and makes sure you're always protected
  • Finds malware contained in archive files
  • Scans for viruses in emails for popular email clients
  • Scans for viruses on iOS devices and finds/eradicates viruses found in document directories on the devices
  • Automatically scans external drives when they are mounted
  • Flexible options for handling malware (automatically attempt to repair, quarantine malware for later action, or ask what to do on a case-by-case basis)
  • Marks trusted folders to speed up scans
  • Application behavior analysis detects suspicious behavior in running applications
  • Email notifications when malware is found
  • History logs

v10.9.60 is out today. Happiness is: I continue to be astounded that Real-Time Scanning on my M1 MBPro in Low Priority mode is entirely unnoticeable in the background while I work. Yes, it's a bit overkill for my situation, but bravo.

VirusBarrier does its job, BUT: It is always disturbing my workflow by asking for full access (every time you start your computer the question pops up again, even when you already gave the permission in the "login items"-menu). The Traffic scanner is even worse in making you nervous. You need to deactivate all permissions. It seems to be impossible to prevent VirusBarrier from autostart. VirusBarrier auto-starts, even, when it is not in the "login items" list. In addition to all that it even slows down my high-end-super-modern MacBook Pro on Big Sur (2.9 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i9 - 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 - Radeon Pro Vega 20 4 GB). I deleted that annoying software by using CleanMyMac, because the official uninstaller by Intego doesn't do the complete job.

Bonjour, après une année complète d'utilisation de cette série d'utilitaires sur mon Imac 5K de 2017, je viens de le désinstaller !... BEAUCOUP TROP DE RALENTISSEMENTS SOUS MAC OS BIG SUR !... Et trop souvent des blocages avec le message “Vous ne possédez pas les autorisations permettant d'ouvrir l'application”. Insupportable !... Après avoir donc fait la désinstallation complète (attention une extension système n'est pas désinstaller par l'installeur officielle d'Intego et il faut le faire à la main en désactivant le SIP), j'ai retrouvé un système bien plus véloce et stable. J'espère que cela aidera... ;-)

Netupdate repeatedly fails to download new virus definitions requiring you to uninstall VirusBarrier. Intego support has failed to respond despite being a customer for 12 years.

Intego VirusBarrier remains my personal favorite anti-malware app for Mac. But here's why I knocked off one star: (1) When you allow it to use Real-Time Scanning without 'Scan on low priority', it literally eats your system calls alive. Nothing else is allowed to run, creating the worst possible 'Sit&Spin' scenario. So, don't do that unless you ONLY want VirusBarrier running. Note that unless you're doing something questionable, there is no point in using Real-Time Scanning on a Mac anyway. If you're downloading stuff that could potentially be Trojans or scamWarz crap, then use it! (2) When VirusBarrier does find something bad, it doesn't provide ANY method of canceling out of either Trust what it found, or Repair (aka kill) what it found, or if you have Real-Time Scanning on, shoving the thingy into Quarantine. Those are your only choices. You cannot cancel out of those choices. You cannot Quit the app. You're forced to Force Quit! I've gone over this lousy situation with their tech support twice at this point. But for whatever reason, possibly to prevent malware from killing this mode, they won't change this feature. It can get a bit infuriating. They also never provide a list of what malware protection is provided with updates or what malware the app protects you from as a whole. That's of course due to anti-malware being a competitive UN-scientific business by default, which is annoying but inevitable. - - Otherwise, I love this app. It is frequently updated. It has frequent new malware definition updates. It's fast at scanning after its initial scan of a system. - - I also never buy the yearly malware subscriptions at the standard price. Never. It always goes on sale somewhere or other. This week I got a dirt cheap extra year's worth as part of upgrading Parallels Desktop. Last year I got 3 years worth of updates for dirt cheap as part of a software bundle. Keep an eye out for discounts!

For today, know that v10.9.18 is currently *only* available to a select group of users. Intego tech support told me the final version will be out in few days. I'm assuming it is currently in beta testing.

I've been using VB for decades with no problems; the updates have worked perfectly. I currently use VB on my iMac Pro, 10.13.2. I really sympathize with ppl having problems, but through all the versions, I've had no problems. I'm able to switch between startup drives ...

I have just purchased your Mac Optimizer and it will not launch, please rectify this for me. Also on a subsequent attempt to install mac Optimizer a pop up said Only X was being installed, I did not purchase this or continue with this install. I have also just purchased Disc Diet which installed without issue. I have also unresolved issues with a package I purchased a time ago.(Screen shot of purchases below) Each time I try to install a pop up message says “Insert the (nuli) disc to continue” or “Insert the Virus BarrierX9 to continue"I have no idea what these specified discs are or how to access it, can you please help with these issues..

Bought the security package a couple of weeks ago and couldn't download anything. One app even prompted me to insert a disc ! (Yes, a physical disc as if this was still 2007). Total waste of money. I haven't had time yet to request a refund

No good. No matter what I tried, the software did not download. Eventually, once I did download, it kept asking for more money!. Said, I do not have permission to open it. Waste of money

Why not just use Sophos? It's free and no yearly update fees. Also; I don't understand why updates can't list the changes instead of: "Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated".

I actually like Intego's VirusBarrier software, though my problem is that you never stop paying for it–unlike an antivirus software like ClamAV. You pay for the software, and you pay for antivirus updates (I think you get a year free or thereabouts from purchasing it). So it does its job, but it's also a money pit.

Been using product for years. Subscription due, so it says free upgrade to X9 ok, installed. Tried to scan and unable to complete? E mailed support, told 'we are working on this problem' THEY KNEW ABOUT PROBLEM AND LET APP LOOSE! So cancelled subscription , not wanting to pay for this kind of workmanship. Now I notice 10.9.1 version here, is this a fix? Support never go back to me as they said they would. I'm old and can afford products but demand my monies worth, but turning loose bad product and knowing it is not good business. Sorry for my rant, these type of things anger m.

It's way too expensive; and I really dislike the fact, that when the license's not renewed in time, you only get the option to "trust" found malware - it still searches, but you can't quarantaine etc... Sounds like typical scareware-habits to me.
Something else: the silly "NetUpdate" DOESN'T update automatically, I experienced several times I checked the updates manually, to find the last one, which HADN'T been installed, was 1 month old or so!!

My only experience with VirusBarrier is that Intego insists on flagging the open source Mac camera utility Imagesnap as malware, saying that it is infected with "RobSnap.A". A Google search turns up nothing for "RobSnap.A". Since my own open source theft recovery software package (VUWER) uses Imagesnap, Intego is telling its users that VUWER contains malware, too. It would nice if Intego would address this problem, instead of insisting that a couple of open source utilities contain malware that no one else on Earth has ever heard of.

This software just eats away at your system resources. Trash it and give Bitdefender's Virus Scanner Plus a shot. It's the most unobtrusive virus scanner for OS X so far.
