What is Intego Mac Premium Bundle X9?

Since 1997, Intego has been known for its Mac security tools, and recently with Intego Mac Premium Bundle,it has added a fully-featured security package focusing on Apple machines.

Although known for being invulnerable, you must be thinking why Intego is putting all these efforts. The recent figures say malware targeting Mac is growing and to prevent your Mac from being infected, the company offers a tool with VirusBarrier, NetBarrier, Firewall, and more.

Mac Premium Bundle X9 does not take more than 2 minutes to install and setup. Once installed, you are prompted to enter the license key that you get upon purchasing the product. However, if you want to give it a try you can use it for free for 30 days

Intego Ease of Use and Setup

User Interface –

The dashboard of Intego’s Malware Protection is easy to use. This means from the home screen itself you can see what’s enabled and what’s not.

Price –

$70yearly for a single Mac

$120 yearly for 5 Mac

This might not sound appealing because big players offer 10 device licenses at just $100 but there’s a catch. The prices offered by big giants can go up after one year however, Intego says the price will remain the same at renewal data. This means you will not have to worry about a price hike. Isn’t this fantastic?

Virus Barrier – Security Tool To Detect and Clean Infections (Antivirus)

For Intego protecting Mac machines from malware attacks is paramount. Hence, it aims at detecting both Mac and Windows malware. Although Windows malware doesn’t affect Mac systems, they do unintentionally infect Apple machines. Hence, Intego works on detecting Windows malware too.
To ensure this an AV-Test was done on Intego Mac Premium Bundle X9 and it scored 100% detection rate.

However, there’s a drawback instead of quarantining malicious files, the Virus Barrier asks users for the action they want to take. To overcome this, you need to change the settings, but we believe this should be the default settings.

You can choose from three levels of protection:

  • Minimum – Essential protection
  • Standard and
  • Maximum
Intego Security Features

Those who want complete malware protection should go with Maximum protection. However, if you are short on time you can go with Standard protection that keeps the device safe from common & Windows threats.

In addition to this scheduled scanning is not default. This means Virus detection is done only in real-time and if you want deeper scanning, scheduled scans will need to be set. Which we think should be a default feature for all-around protection.

Besides, detecting viruses Intego Mac Premium Bundle X9 allows users to set user-based rules for home, public Wi-Fi, and work networks.

Web Protection

Alongside securing you from virus attack, Intego Mac Premium Bundle also has a Safe Browsing feature, using it you can check if the browser has an anti-phishing setting enabled or not.
