[1:45 PM] Knock-Knock - Who's There? DoorStop Final
by Staff

Opon Door Networks, Inc. has released DoorStop Personal 1.0. DoorStop Personal is a software based firewall for the Mac OS. According to Open Door:

DoorStop Personal is an easy to use, end-user version of Open Door's powerful server firewall software, specifically focused on protecting Mac OS 9's new Internet services. Open Door also announced upgrades to its Security Suites for Macintosh servers and a white paper on Mac OS 9 Internet security, rounding out its Mac OS security offerings.

DoorStop Personal Edition, which runs on Macs back to Mac OS 8.1, is an important security enhancement for any Mac that is connected to the Internet for long periods of time, for instance through a cable or DSL modem or an intranet. Although the Mac OS is one of the most secure, today's increasingly popular permanent connections, in combination with Mac OS 9's new Internet features, significantly increase the Mac's exposure and warrant additional protection beyond that provided by the OS itself.

DoorStop Personal Edition requires a PowerPC Mac and Mac OS 8.1 or later. Its features include:

  • Built-in support for Internet file sharing (through Mac OS 9's file sharing and ShareWay IP)
  • Built-in support for Mac OS 9's Program Linking over TCP/IP
  • An advanced mode for protecting any TCP/IP service
  • Logging of allowed and/or denied TCP/IP connections.
  • Online help

DoorStop is available for US$59 for a single user license, and US$1299 for a 50 user site license. Educational discounts are available. You can find more information at the Open Door Networks web site.
