Parallels was on hand, demonstrating its newest version of the bestselling Parallels software for the Mac, Parallels Desktop for Mac Enterprise Edition. This software offers true Windows compatibility on a Mac, and it's designed for use with business applications, allowing for a configurable, policy-compliant solution that will fit nicely into a company's existing IT business process. Thus, companies that have traditionally been Windows PC-focused can more easily allow employees to utilize Macs in the workplace, yet still run all of the software utilized by the company on or off of its network. Of course, more consumer-oriented versions of Parallels continue to be available, offering fast and seamless solutions for running Windows software, including popular games, on a Mac.
While Mac users rarely encounter problems after accidentally downloading viruses or spyware from the Web, this possibility has become a growing concern, along with Internet security and online privacy in general. To address these problems, along with a handful of other common needs such as data encryption, finding duplicate files, properly uninstalling software, or removing orphaned or unnecessary files that take up valuable space on a computer's hard drive, ZeoBIT utilized the Macworld/iWorld Expo to release the 2012 edition of its popular MacKeeper software for the Mac. Priced at $39, MacKeeper is a Mac utility that handles 16 different security and maintenance tasks, designed to help any iMac or MacBook run faster and more efficiently. 2012 MacKeeper is now available from the Mac App Store.
