Upgraded products help users learn about and protect new Mac OS network

ASHLAND, OR. — November 5, 2007 — Open Door Networks Inc. today announced
updates to its comprehensive line of Macintosh Internet security products.
The updates, available immediately, significantly enhance the security of
the networking features that Apple has added in its just-shipped Leopard
(Mac OS X 10.5) operating system. They also help users understand and react
to new and evolving security threats.

“Leopard provides a host of new Internet-based services,” said Alan
Oppenheimer, president of Open Door Networks. “New features like Screen
Sharing and Back to My Mac are incredibly powerful but also serious
security risks. It’s important that Mac users both understand these new
features and their ramifications, and have the tools to fully secure them.
That’s where our products come in.”

Us” discusses Leopard’s many new Internet features, as well as issues with
new products like the iPhone and Apple TV. The eBook, its associated blog,, and its Top 10 list, are integrated into Open Door’s other
security products. The eBook is also available as a standalone PDF.

updated products. The Suite continues to represent the most comprehensive
approach to Macintosh Internet security available today. Free 30-day
