Norton Internet Security for Mac 5
Keep your Mac protected from online threats with Norton Internet Security for Mac

Keeping safe online is about much more that simply ensuring that you manage to avoid virus infections. This is something that Symantec are only too aware of and it is a fact reflected in the beta version of Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac which bring the security package bang up to date complete with OS X Lion support.

Aside from the fact that Norton Internet Security is now Lion compatible - and it is only compatible with Lion - there is not much else new to look forward to here. There is a new interface that brings the app more in line with the look of the Windows version of the software, but the only new feature is Safe Web which provides warnings about potentially unsafe web sites - and automatically blocks them so they cannot cause any damage.

While there is little new to talk about in the security suite, Norton Internet Security still has a lot to offer. There is an effective and easily configured firewall that can be used to control the flow of traffic to and from your computer - this is pleasingly simple to set up.

The threat of identity theft s one that everyone should be concerned about, but to help allay some fears. Norton Internet Security includes phishing protection that blocks known phishing sites while web searches have been made safer due to the SafeWeb component of the Norton toolbar. This provides a warning should a dangerous sites be listed in search results

It should be noted that this is beta software; as such it is not fully finished and issues may arise. You should take care when using any beta software, ensuring that you backup all of your important data.

The beta build will give you a 14 days license. Simply click "renew" to extend this license after 14 days. The beta will expire October 31st 2011.

Verdict:

New features and improvements may be a little thin on the ground, but the Lion-friendly version of Norton Internet Security is worth a look, at least while the beta is free.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
