Mac Protection Posted by Sean @ 15:12 GMT

Take a look at this:

F-Secure Mac Protection

Looks like our recently mentioned Internet Security Technology Preview, right?

But look closely and you'll see that the image above is for Mac Protection.

We used to have a Mac solution back in the days of sneakernets. The updates were distributed via floppies. This new Mac Protection (with antivirus) is part of our Technology Preview program and you can download it from our Beta Programs page. An Intel processor based Mac with OS X version 10.5 (Leopard) is a requirement.

Macs are popular, with consumers… and also with malware authors. There's plenty of Zlob codec trojans that will infect a Mac if given the chance. Mac's popularity is such that we feel it's time once again for our own Mac solution. Give it a try — Cheers.
