ProteMac has released ProteMac NetMine 2.0 (http://www.protemac.com/NetMine/), an update of the network firewall for Mac OS X. The upgrade adds a new interface, a new firewall rules editor and a realtime connection request
NetMine can control Internet and network activity of all applications on your Mac. ProteMac NetMine intercepts all network activity traveling from your Mac and from every an application of your Mac.
NetMine firewall can prevent all unwanted outside and inside traffic from reaching protected machines. It can also restrict or prevent outright the spread of networked computer worms, trojans, viruses and malware, according to the folks at ProteMac.
The two-way firewall stops inappropriate or malicious access to your computer from both internal and external network sources. As a frontline defense, it prevents malware from spreading, providing protection against hackers, loss of personal data, unknown malware, and unauthorized program activity.
Auto-learning and Automatic configuration modes allows users to set up typical rules for program activity and firewall monitored connections. Rules for most known programs that access the Internet are applied automatically, relieving you of the need to enter rules manually every time a new application accesses the Internet or interacts with another program.
NetMine 2.0 costs US$29.95 for a single user license. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
