Freiburg, Germany - Paragon Software Group is proud to announce Paragon NTFS for
Mac 14 has received the Best of IT Innovation 2016, in the category of "Data Management" at CeBIT
2016. The app was selected by the Initiative Mittelstand from thousands of submissions, honoring
the popular OS X utility with this prestigious award.
Paragon's popular OS X utility allows anyone to easily access Windows NTFS-formatted hard disk
partitions. OS X 10.11 El Capitan's new System Integrity Protection (SIP) feature prevents the use
of third-party disk utilities in OS X Disk Utility. Paragon NTFS for Mac overcomes this limitation,
simplifying management of such volumes in El Capitan.
Paragon NTFS for Mac allows users to check and repair the file system integrity of NTFS
partitions via the app's graphical interface, using its volume management functions, instead of
using complicated command line tools, as is required by other utilities of this type.
"While Mac OS X allows users to easily read from Windows NTFS formatted partitions, it doesn't
allow them to write files to such a drive without entering arcane commands into Terminal, or allow
them to fix any problems that a volume's file system might incur," says Paragon Software Group
owner Konstantin Komarov. "Paragon NTFS for Mac allows users to read, write, run diagnostics, and
fix any issues with NTFS volumes directly from its graphical volume management interface,
simplifying the use of NTFS formatted volumes on the Mac."
Users can conveniently use Paragon NTFS for Mac to easily navigate the contents of any NTFS
drive, allowing them to read, edit, copy, or create files and folders on the drive. The app
provides fast and transparent access to any NTFS partition while running OS X 10.11.
* Full NTFS support under OS X 10.11 El Capitan
* Ultra-quick read/write access to NTFS files
* No limit to file or partition sizes (within NTFS and OS X constraints)
* Supports special NTFS functions, including: resource forks, hardlinks, symlinks and file
* File operations on NTFS partitions are just as good as those on native HFS partitions
* Unparalleled stability
* Simply install it, reboot, and go to work
Version 14 of Paragon NTFS for Mac is the only solution on the market to match native driver
speed on Solid State Drives (SSDs) for reading, writing, creating, editing, copying, or
transferring NTFS partitions. Paragon's own internal tests show Paragon NTFS 14 for Mac achieved
700MB/sec (write) and 800MB/sec (read) on the internal SSD of a MacBook Pro. The app also performs
well as HFS+ with external drives, registering 250MB/sec write and 240MB/sec read speeds on a
two-SSD RAID device, and 210MB/sec write and 210MB/sec read speeds on an ordinary external drive.
(The drive used was a 2TB USB 3.0 Seagate Expansion Drive 3.5").
The new version is also fully compatible with Apple's new OS X 10.11 El Capitan operating
system. Plus, it still supports versions of OS X going back to 10.8 Mountain Lion. Users of OS X
10.7 Lion and earlier can download a copy of Paragon NTFS for Mac - Yosemite Free, which is
available with full functionality for dual-boot users of OS X 10.6 through OS X 10.10.
With the debut of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple introduced a new system protection feature called
System Integrity Protection, which prevents modifications to certain system files, folders and
processes. This adds a layer of protection for the system by only allowing system binaries to be
modified by the system installer and software updates. El Capitan no longer allows code injection
and runtime attachments to system binaries, as was allowed by previous versions of the operating
system. Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is fully compatible with this new security feature, allowing safe
and hassle-free access to NTFS partitions.
Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is just the latest in a proud history of utilities developed by Paragon,
who has been the leader in cross-platform storage software for 20 years. The company's apps provide
proven maximum performance, stability and security for cross-platform work between Mac, Windows and
other operating systems.
* OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion through OS X 10.11 El Capitan
* 64-bit Processor
* 256MB RAM
