Mac user myself, who is heavily dependent on his computer and is always
online, I want maximum security and mobility without installing heavy duty
software on my MacBook Pro. With our new products, we believe that we are
solving a growing problem; and are very pleased and excited to make the
Gatekeeper available to the Mac user community at the same price as the
