Secure For Mac

 

Oct 08, 2020 Mac Security experts since 1999. Mac security is a more serious problem than most people think. It’s true that Macintosh computers have lower security risks than the average PC, but running security software for Macs is every bit as essential. SecureMac has operated at the cutting edge of Apple security for over a decade. Multi-platform protection. Secure all your devices with a single license. No matter if you run on a Mac, Windows, Android or Linux - we got you covered!

Available only on Mac computers that have the Apple T2 Security Chip, Secure Boot offers three settings to make sure that your Mac always starts up from a legitimate, trusted Mac operating system or Microsoft Windows operating system: Full Security, Medium Security, and No Security.

Secure Boot settings are available in Startup Security Utility:

Secure
  1. Turn on your Mac, then press and hold Command (⌘)-R immediately after you see the Apple logo to start up from macOS Recovery.
  2. When you see the macOS Utilities window, choose Utilities > Startup Security Utility from the menu bar.
  3. When you're asked to authenticate, click Enter macOS Password, then choose an administrator account and enter its password.

Full Security

Full Security is the default Secure Boot setting, offering the highest level of security. This is a level of security previously available only on iOS devices.

During startup, your Mac verifies the integrity of the operating system (OS) on your startup disk to make sure that it's legitimate. If the OS is unknown or can't be verified as legitimate, your Mac connects to Apple to download the updated integrity information it needs to verify the OS. This information is unique to your Mac, and it ensures that your Mac starts up from an OS that is trusted by Apple.

If FileVault is enabled while your Mac is attempting to download updated integrity information, you're asked to enter a password to unlock the disk. Enter your administrator password, then click Unlock to complete the download.

If the OS doesn't pass verification:

  • macOS: An alert informs you that a software update is required to use this startup disk. Click Update to open the macOS installer, which you can use to reinstall macOS on the startup disk. Or click Startup Disk and choose a different startup disk, which your Mac will also attempt to verify.
  • Windows: An alert informs you that you need to install windows with Boot Camp Assistant.

If your Mac can't connect to the Internet, it displays an alert that an Internet connection is required.

  • Check your Internet connection, such as by choosing an active network from Wi-Fi status menu in the menu bar. Then click Try Again.
  • Or click Startup Disk and choose a different startup disk.
  • Or use Startup Security Utility to lower the security level to Medium Security.

F-secure For Mac

Medium Security

During startup when Medium Security is turned on, your Mac verifies the OS on your startup disk only by making sure that it has been properly signed by Apple (macOS) or Microsoft (Windows). This doesn't require an Internet connection or updated integrity information from Apple, so it doesn't prevent your Mac from using an OS that is no longer trusted by Apple.

Browser
  • Keyword Highlighting

    Highlight individual words, phrases, or substrings in the session window to identify errors in log files or streaming output and to highlight prompts. Regular expressions are also supported, making it easier to highlight strings like IP addresses. Keyword display attributes (bold, reverse video, and color) can be combined.

  • Dark Mode

    Dark Mode is supported for macOS 10.14 or later.

  • Session Configuration and Management

    SecureCRT gives you extensive session management options. Name your sessions, save and recall session settings, and configure custom keyboard, display, connection and other settings for each session. You can also organize your sessions in folders and access your sessions quickly by typing part of the session name in the Connect bar or the Session Manager's filter bar.

  • Tab Groups

    Tab groups allow you to compare the output of two sessions and group related sessions in the same SecureCRT window so that you can get more done in less time. You can organize sessions in tabs and switch easily between them. Or you can work in one tab while monitoring the session output in another tab. Tabs can be grouped vertically or horizontally.

  • Button Bar

    Map buttons to commands or actions, such as sending strings, running scripts, menu functions, and protocol commands, or launching external programs like your favorite editor, cmd.exe, or regedit. You can create different button bars for specific sessions or operations and assign a color to the button icons so that they are easier to see and organize. The Button Bar Manager allows you to add, duplicate, edit, delete, rename, and rearrange button bars.
